The Savage® 110 Engage Hunter XP Bolt-Action Rifle comes ready for action with a factory-mounted and bore-sighted Bushnell® Engage™ 3-9x40mm scope. The 110 Engage Hunter model comes with a rugged synthetic stock that adjusts for length-of-pull. Savage’s AccuTrigger® is user adjustable to obtain a light, crisp release with no creep; and a lever mounted within the trigger body blocks the sear unless the trigger is intentionally pressed in the center, minimizing the risk of accidental discharge. The basic bolt design assures that the locking lugs fully contact the receiver, holding the headspace to a minimum every time the bolt is locked. The tight headspace contributes to the excellent accuracy Savage rifles are known for. The matte-blued, sporter-weight, carbon steel barrel features precision button-rifling. A 3-position receiver tang safety is easy to reach with the shooter’s thumb, and allows the rifle to be loaded and unloaded in the safe position. The Savage 110 Hunter Engage XP Bolt-Action Rifle uses a detachable magazine to provide quick and safe reloading and unloading.Savage 110 Engage Hunter XP

SAVAGE’S NEW 110 ENGAGE HUNTER XP RIFLE COMBINES THE PROVEN 110 PLATFORM WITH A FACTORY-MOUNTED, BORE-SIGHTED BUSHNELL ENGAGE RIFLESCOPE.
Smith and Wesson engineered the SD9VE to be self-sufficient in the sense that accessorizing it would be superfluous. It’s meant to be small and concealable, so adding attachments only takes away from its ideal usage. The main accessory that I recommend buying is a quality holster. There are plenty of companies out there that manufacture worthwhile holsters, but I’d take a look at Fobus and DeSantis first. They are reliable companies with great reputations.
Buying an extra magazine from S&W could empty your pockets, but that’s mitigated by the fact that each SDVE comes with two mags out of the box. If you’re partial to accessories, don’t forget that these pistols are built with Picatinny rails, so adding lasers, lights, sights/scopes is still an option. The only accessory that is a must is a tactical spring kit to fix that damn trigger, go out and buy one; even before you shoot your SDVE.
2018 has been a relatively quiet year for S&W, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t make a few nice additions to their catalog. Regarding the SDVE series, Smith & Wesson now offers several models outfitted with HI-VIZ fiber optic sights. When it comes to fiber optic sights, few companies have proven their excellence quite like HI–Viz. Their new and improved LITEWAVE technology promises increased durability and enhanced visibility – in other words, these aren’t just any ordinary fiber optics!
Overall, Smith and Wesson did a great job with the SDVE Series. With over 150 years of experience, Smith and Wesson has made yet another reliable semi-automatic handgun that can offer a sense of security to its owner. Although it was designed to be an evolution of prior guns that failed, it’s still not perfect. But for a budget handgun, you’re getting a great gun for the price. It has superb handling, decent accuracy, great aesthetics and components, and is American-made. The SDVE is surprisingly fun to shoot and a pleasure to own. If you’re looking to beef up your home security or looking for another concealable carry weapon, you should definitely consider the SDVE Series.
Savage Arms has unleashed a ton of new products thus far in 2018 including the 110 Engage Hunter XP rifle. Designed for hunters and other serious shooters, the rifle is ready to rock right out of the box. It combines the company’s Model 110 platform with a factory-mounted, bore-sighted Bushnell Engage riflescope.
The 110 Engage Hunter XP is available in 16 different calibers, including 243 Win, 6.5 Creedmoor, 7mm-08 Rem., 260 Rem., 308 Win., 270 WSM, 300 WSM, 338 Federal, 25-06 Rem., 270 Win., 6.5X284 Norma, 30-06 Sprg., 7mm Rem. Mag, 300 Win Mag., 338 Win. Mag. and 280 Ackley Improved. Barrel length is 22 or 24 inches depending on the caliber.
Meanwhile, length of pull is customizable for comfort and consistency, and the AccuTrigger offers a light, crisp pull. The rifle also sports improved ergonomics which cull improved accuracy from its 110 action, floating bolt head, and thread-in, zero-tolerance headspace system, “while the optic’s drop-compensating reticle makes it easier to place precise shots at longer ranges,” the press release says.
Shipping out with a detachable box magazine, the MSRP on the 110 Engage Hunter XP is $629. See the breakdown of features and specs below, along with a video. For more, visit savagearms.com.
