Bolt-action rifles are more than just a tradition in the field, they’re reliable, accurate platforms, and the Mauser M18 Savanna was quite literally made to perform. This rifle comes standard with a five-round magazine, but if you’d like to increase capacity, there are ten-round magazines available as aftermarket items. Its tan color makes it an ideal choice for shooters who live in desert or otherwise dry regions and the black inserts are strategically placed to facilitate a firm grip and comfort. Perhaps best of all, the Mauser M18 Savanna is backed by the company’s sub-MOA guarantee. Of course, that means you’d better be holding up your end of the shooting work when running this rifle.

This rifle is listed at an affordable price point, leaving you with even fewer options not to consider adding it to your collection. MSRP of the Mauser M18 Savanna is $849.99.
