Savage Arms has officially announced the Impulse Mountain Hunter as the newest model in their award-winning series of straight-pull rifles. Introducing faster speeds and lighter weights for big game treks, this rifle is a gamechanger for 2023.
“At Savage, we not only value the input of our customers, but we also listen to it. Since 2021 when Savage launched the first Impulse variant, the number one request we’ve received is for a lightweight version ideal for hunting in the mountains,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing at Savage Arms. “With extreme accuracy and breakthrough technology, the Mountain Hunter is light, sharp, and encompasses all that the Impulse family represents, thus giving our customers what they wanted.”
These American-made rifles feature a unique straight-pull action that refines the basic function of the conventional bolt into one fast and intuitive movement. The key to IMPULSE’s lightning-fast functionality is the new action, which is built around Hexlock, a groundbreaking lockup that allows for IMPULSE’s reliability, speed, safety and accuracy.
The smooth bolt throw allows a shooter to cycle rounds intuitively, without the need for the standard four changes of direction common to a conventional bolt. When every second counts, IMPULSE reduces split times and allows for a shooter to manipulate the bolt without losing their cheek weld.
Key features include:
* American-Made straight-pull bolt action
* User-adjustable AccuTrigger (1.5-4lbs)
* Removable, multi-positional bolt handle
* Aluminum receiver with integral 1-piece 20 MOA rail
