WESTFIELD, Massachusetts - April 17, 2024 - Savage Arms® continues to be a leader of innovation in factory rifles with the introduction of the TIMBER Series- a new series of precision-engineered rimfire rifles.

Each firearm is available in bolt-action (B-Series) as well as 22 LR semi-automatic (A-Series) and offered in a variety of caliber options including: 22 LR, 17 HMR and 22 WMR. The TIMBER Series offers shooters features like a 20 MOA Picatinny Rail, a 10-round rotary magazine, a barrel threaded with cap for 1/2-28 and thread-in head spacing.

"This new TIMBER series is perfect for every Savage shooter from seasoned marksmen to newcomers just getting their start," said Brett McKenna, Rimfire Product Manager at Savage Arms. "The three available lines provide users with options to match their preference, whether that is a classic wood stock or a lightweight option that does not compromise durability. The TIMBER Series promises an unparalleled shooting experience, we’re thrilled to finally announce this extension to the Savage line."

The TIMBER Thumbhole marries precision with elegance, featuring a striking wood ambidextrous thumbhole stock. With a 2.5-6 lb. user-adjustable AccuTrigger™ and two Sling Studs, this series is crafted for enthusiasts who demand both performance and aesthetics.
