With the history of quality Savage Arms has established they continually get requests to develop need-specific firearms. The 110 FCP HS Precision is a perfect example. The needs of law enforcement are different than that of civilians, but thankfully we get to use their firearms, too! The Savage Arms 110 FCP HS Precision is a marriage of practicality and tactical influences which is phenomenally accurate.
With a name like 110 FCP HS Precision, I’m sure lots of readers are wondering, “What does that even mean?” Well, Savage Arms does have a rhyme and reason to their character code. Here is how to be an interpreter of the Savage lingo:
- 110 – 3 Digit Number means it is a Long-Action caliber
- F – Synthetic Stock
- C – Clip (Detachable Box Magazine)
- P – Police design
- HS Precision – crediting the aftermarket stock being used
Now that you are fluent with the lingo, let’s take a deeper look at this law enforcement driven package. The stock is what is central to this rifle. It is an HS Precision Fiberglass Stock with V-Block. This establishes rigidity and strength for the .338 Lapua Magnum and its 26″ Fluted, Heavy Barrel. The muzzle brake capping off the barrel helps tame this thunderous caliber. It also has a 5-Round Detachable Box Magazine from Accuracy International, the industry leader in quality magazines. The action features Savage‘s AccuTrigger and an Oversized Bolt Handle for a crisp trigger pull and smooth operation. A full rail over the receiver allows for many mounting options depending on the optics you choose.
