GUN TESTS GRADE: B+
Good build. It wasn't the most accurate, and we didn't like the feel of the magazine fit and lock. But it did shoot sub-MOA with one round. We loved the bolt handle and the AccuTrigger.

The Savage bolt is a standard two-lug style with a small claw extractor and a plunger ejector.
The Savage magazine had a steel body and a polymer cover that would fit flush with the bottom of the rifle when inserted and locked in.
The BA-style bolt handle was longer than the bolts on the other two rifles and offered plenty of leverage and control when feeding and ejecting 308 Winchester rounds.
We had some trouble getting the tab to seat properly, and a couple of subsonic Winchester rounds didn't feed into the chamber properly.
Here's a closer look at the knurled thread protector in place on the muzzle. We liked that cosmetic/ functional treatment.
Here are the exposed threads. The Surge slipped right on. We learned in short order to elevate the barrel to start the device on the threads. The weight of the suppressor made it easy to misalign with the barrel parallel to the ground, but at near vertical, the Surge started itself onto the barrel more easily.
