The Savage Impulse is a straight-pull bolt-action rifle that was specially designed to meet the demands of driven hunts. It combines the safety and accuracy of a traditional bolt-action rifle with a bolt-action speed close to that of a self-loading rifle, without the magazine limitations. The latest model in the Impulse range is the brand new Driven Hunter. With a shorter, lighter barrel, reduced overall weight and all the popular standard Savage Impulse features, such as adjustable AccuTrigger, adjustable AccuFit stock, integrated Picatinny mounting rail with 20 MOA forward tilt, muzzle thread and removable bolt handle for left-handed shooters.
