Model 16 FCSS

The Savage Model 16 FCSS is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in 11 calibers. The Model 16 FCSS is one of nine rifles in Savage’s Weather Warrior Series. Savage Arms was founded in 1894, and is headquartered in Westfield, Massachusetts.

The FCSS features a detachable box magazine, swivel studs, and Savage’s AccuTrigger system. The AccuTrigger system features a dual-stage trigger design. The first (vented) trigger acts to disengage a safety mechanism, allowing the second trigger to be depressed in order to activate the firing pin. The trigger assembly is also user-adjustable for weight of pull. The FCSS also features Savage’s patented AccuStock system. The AccuStock includes an integral 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 16 FCSS is drilled and tapped for scope mounts.

Savage is recommends the Model 16 FCSS for varmint/general hunting.
