New Hunting Shotguns Already on Our 2020 Wish List
By Kristin Alberts
Though we haven’t even hit the booths of SHOT Show yet — the firearm industry’s major trade show — there are plenty of announcements rolling in ahead of the Jan. 21 through Jan. 24 show. As always, there are plenty of hunting inspired guns to get pumped about, so with that in mind, here are three scatterguns we’re excited to hunt within the new decade.
SHOP SAVAGE HERE
Savage dives headlong into the scattergun waters with not one but six models of semi-automatic shotguns. Not since the company produced a brief run of Auto-5 spin-offs has Savage built semi-auto scatterguns in-house. That might just be one of the most interesting aspects of the Renegauge—it’s one of the few truly American-made hunting semi-automatic shotguns.
The Renegauge’s self-regulating dual valve gas system allows the gun to cycle both light and heavy loads, from the lightest target loads up to the magnum threes, limited only by the three-inch chamber. A one-piece bolt carrier assembly includes the bolt, pusher sleeve and carrier. Drawing from the incredibly successful AccuFit stock systems on 110 rifles, Savage modifies the design to include three interchangeable gel-feel recoil pads for customizing both LOP and comb height.
The initial launch is all 12-gauge
