Savage 210 Master Shot 12-Gauge Slug Shotgun

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Savage 210 incorporated a number of features we liked, including a 60-degree bolt rotation, a front-locking bolt that features three locking lugs and controlled feed with left- and right-hand extractors. It's also the sleekest production gun to our eyes, and it shot well in the test.

Save for the blocky magazine, the lines of the 210 are surprisingly good for a slug gun. The receiver is fairly compact, considering the size of the shells it must accept.
Ports cut in the Savage's receiver (white arrow) look like gas ports, but are more likely slots cut to accommodate the gun's sizable ejectors. This view also shows the scope mount, which caused ejection problems (black arrow).
