Slug gun hunters understand that modern sabot technology has elevated the 20-gauge slug to an effective range equaling centerfire cartridges like the .45-70 or .454 Casull, with much less recoil than traditional 12-gauge slugs. Savage Arms' new Model 220 Bolt-Action Slug Gun provides rifle-grade 20-gauge slug accuracy, plus rifle-grade features.
Built on a drilled and tapped Savage 110 rifle receiver, the Model 220 features the revolutionary Savage AccuTrigger, a three-position rear-tang safety, detachable box magazine, and a durable synthetic stock. The Model 220 will be available in Black Synthetic with an MSRP of $505 and Realtree Hardwoods HD with an MSRP of $555.
