Gun Report

Savage Model 114 Classic 270 Win.

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Savage 114 Classic was a classy-looking firearm, with attractive dark-stained american walnut, a free-floated barrel, and the Accu-Trigger that has changed the industry for the better. Though it shot well with Stars & Stripes 130-grain Nosler Ballistic Tip loads, it stunk it up with our other test ammo. Despite its attractive price, this didn’t shoot like a Savage, as far as we are concerned.

The hard-rubber buttpad didn’t offer a lot of recoil protection, our testers said. if we bought the gun, we’d probably replace it with a limbsaver pre-fit pad. Also, the Monte Carlo-style raised stock of the Savage differs from the straight-stocked Browning and Remington offerings. The “American Classic” series has the non-Monte Carlo straight stock.
The generous three-position safety of the Savage 114 Classic was quiet and easy to use in cold weather. The Accu-Trigger has never been more impressive, and the 114’s overall build quality and finish quality was excellent.
