SUFFIELD, Connecticut - May 16, 2017 - Savage Arms' new B17 17 HMR bolt-action recently earned a Great Buy award in Outdoor Life magazine's 2017 Gun & Optics Test. The award was presented to the Savage Arms team during the 2017 NRA Meetings & Exhibits in Atlanta, Georgia, on April 27.

“This rifle is smooth, slick and easy to load and shoot. It turned in some really good accuracy," said Outdoor Life Senior Deputy Editor John Snow. "For the price of $329, this is one of the best buys of the year, there is no doubt about it. If you are looking for a 17 HMR plinker that will put a smile on your face, this is the gun that will do it."

Savage introduced the B17, B22 and B22 Magnum bolt-action rimfire rifles in December of 2016. This lineup includes 12 options priced from $281 to $413. The B-Series’ ergonomically designed stock, higher comb, top tang safety and target-style, vertical pistol grip allow shooters to hold the rifle in a more natural position that puts less pressure on the wrist.

The B Series includes a dozen new models in configurations including Sporter Barrel, Heavy Barrel, Heavy Threaded (suppressor ready) and Heavy Stainless. Like the popular A Series rimfires, all B Series rifles feature a 10-round rotary magazine and the accuracy-boosting adjustable AccuTrigger.
