Savage announced Thursday that their new 6-pound (and under) Model 110 Ultralite rifle, which includes a PROOF Research barrel, is now shipping.
Debuted earlier this year and displayed at SHOT Show in Las Vegas in January, the Model 110 Ultralite features a carbon fiber-wrapped stainless steel barrel mated to a melonite skeletonized receiver inside Savage’s adjustable AccuFit stock. Available in a wide range of eight caliber options, the weight of the rifle is between 5.8 and 6-pounds, depending on caliber, with the overall length running from 42.5- to 44.5-inches depending on the barrel length.

“The 110 Ultralite is a highly refined Model 110,” Jessica Treglia, Sr. Brand Manager at Savage Arms, said in a statement this week. “Our engineers have gone to great lengths to strip weight off the rifle, without sacrificing any of its functionality or accuracy. With the additional weight reduction from the Proof Research barrel, you’ll instantly feel the difference.”
