The Impulse, Savage Arms' first straight-pull rifle, has been selected by the readers and staff of the Guns & Ammo magazine for the coveted Rifle of the Year award!
Savage Arms officially announced on October 26, 2021 that the Impulse straight-pull rifle – the Company's first ever attempt at a linear rearmament system – has been selected as the Rifle of the Year by Guns & Ammo Magazine. The American-made straight-pull rifle was chosen for the award by editors, contributors, and staff of the magazine.
The Rifle of the Year award is a testament to Impulse's success, range, and versatility and is a milestone for the Company.
Savage’s Renegauge won Shotgun of the Year in 2020, and Impulse's award marks the first time a company has won Guns & Ammo annual awards in consecutive years in different categories.
«To win Rifle of the Year is humbling,» said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing at Savage Arms.
«The competition for the 2021 award was fierce. In this crowded field, though, IMPULSE stands alone. The speed of IMPULSE’s straight-pull action has changed the way Americans think about hunting rifles. This design combines everything Savage has learned about accuracy and reliability with innovation that provides marksmen and women with new capabilities. The Guns & Ammo Rifle of the Year award is a welcome recognition of Savage’s leadership in this industry.»
The Savage Arms Impulse is available in three variants – Predator, Hog Hunter and Big Game – and seven calibers: .22-250 Remington, 6.5 Creedmoor, .243 Winchester, .308 Winchester, .300 Winchester Short Magnum, .30-06 Springfield and .300 Winchester Magnum, thus providing hunters with high-speed manual repeating alternatives for big game at mid-to-long ranges in all the most popular calibers for a vast majority of prey.
