11

The Savage Model 110 is a bolt-action repeating rifle developed by Savage Arms of Westfield, Massachusetts. It was designed in 1958 by Nicholas L. Brewer and was patented posthumously in 1963, and has been in continuous production since that time. With the closing of Winchester's New Haven, Connecticut plant in 2007, the Model 110 has passed the Winchester Model 70 as the oldest continuously manufactured bolt-action rifle in America.

In 1998, Savage re-engineered the short action Model 110 and adopted a new model numbering scheme to differentiate short action models from the long actions. Thus, the short action Model 110 became the Model 10, while the long action model remained the Model 110. The Model 110 is the basis for the entire line Savage centerfire bolt-action rifles, including the Models 11/111, 12, 14/114, 16/116, and Model 210 bolt-action shotgun as well as the Stevens Model 200. The series is available in a wide array of chamberings, from .204 Ruger to .338 Winchester Magnum, in order to suit the needs of almost any shooter.
