Model 116 FHSS

The Savage Model 116 FHSS is a bolt-action rifle chambered in .30-06 Springfield, .270 Win., .300 Win. Mag., 7mm Rem. Mag., and .338 Win. Mag. The Model 116 FHSS is one of nine rifles in Savage’s Weather Warrior Series. Savage Arms was founded in 1894, and is headquartered in Westfield, Massachusetts.

FHSS features include a hinged floorplate magazine, swivel studs, and Savage’s AccuTrigger system. The AccuTrigger system features a dual-stage trigger design in which the first (vented) trigger acts to disengage a safety mechanism. Once this occurs, the second trigger can be depressed in order to activate the firing pin. The trigger assembly is also user-adjustable for weight of pull. The FHSS also features Savage’s patented AccuStock system. The AccuStock includes an integral (internal) aluminum spine that runs the length of the forearm, resulting in a more rigid stock that allows the barrel to float freely. In addition, the AccuStock is bedded so as to apply both horizontal and vertical (3-dimensional) pressure to the action. This achieves in a tighter fit between stock and action, resulting in increased overall gun accuracy. The Model 116 FHSS is drilled and tapped for scope mounts.
Savage recommendeds the Model 116 FHSS for general hunting/shooting. A left-handed model is also available.
