First Look: Savage Arms 110 Trail Hunter Lite

by Tommy Grant

We take a peek at the Savage Arms 110 Trail Hunter Lite, a new lighter weight version of the proven bolt-action rifle.

The Savage Arms 110 Trail Hunter is a well-proven, no-frills bolt-action rifle. That said, many hunters have been interested in lighter options lately to help reduce the burden of packing in and out of the bush. Savage’s answer is the 110 Trail Hunter Lite, a rifle that takes all the loved features of the standard model and shaves about a pound off of the package’s total weight.


Savage primarily achieved the lower weight by giving the 110 Trail Hunter Lite a fluted, shorter, barrel than what the original models had. That means a 20-inch barrel for all 15 of the available chambering options except for the .350 Legend model which sports an 18-inch barrel. Overall weight varies depending on the caliber, but all are around 7 pounds. Besides that, most of the features are what you’d expect. That includes a Hogue Overmolded rubber stock, a Tungsten Cerakoted barreled action, a threaded barrel and an adjustable AccuTrigger.


Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing at Savage Arms, said this about the new rifle:

We are very excited to introduce the next evolution of the 110 Trail Hunter as Savage continues to bolster its lineup of firearms designed for hunters … The 110 Trail Hunter Lite is another great partnership with Hogue and brings all of the toughness of the original 110 Trail Hunter, with decreased weight to ensure it’s easier to carry afield.

Available chambering options for the 110 Trail Hunter Lite include .243 Win., .270 Win., .30-06 Spring., .300 Win. Mag., .300 WSM, .308 Win., .350 Legend, .400 Legend, .450 Bushmaster, 5.56 NATO, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, 7mm PRC, 7mm Rem. Mag. and 7mm-08 Rem. MSRP for all models is $669 and they are available now.
