Savage Arms’ Minimalist Rifles Redefine Rimfire
June 04, 2020 - WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – From the diminutive power of the Rascals, to the potential offered by the new Precision Series, Savage Arms knows rimfire. Now Savage is redefining rimfire style with Minimalist—a distinctly different stock design for the Mark II, 93 and 93R17 rifles.

Savage is pleased to introduce Minimalist, a distinctly different take on the classic rimfire design. Minimalist combines a laminate stock for lightweight strength with several additional features for excellent usability in the field. With its button rifled barrel and user-adjustable AccuTrigger, the bolt-action Minimalist delivers Savage accuracy. Minimalist rifles are offered in 22 LR, 22 WMR, and 17 HMR.

“Minimalist takes Savage rimfire in a new direction,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing for Savage. “The laminated stocks are ideal for older youth and adult shooters, yet the rifle weighs only 5.68 pounds. If you’re looking for a new option for plinking or hunting small game, Minimalist delivers.”

Above Minimalist’s carbon steel action, a Weaver-style base is pre-installed. Make the most of cost-effective rimfire rounds by topping these bolt-actions with a scope or red-dot and the rifle will be ready for the range.
