Late last year, shooters everywhere learned the answer to the question we asked when we were told that Savage Arms had been sold by its parent company: Where is Savage going? The answer then, as now, is that Savage is going out hunting or clays shooting with their new Renegauge shotguns, and we’re invited to tag along (and tag out). Now, just in time for turkey season, Savage Arms is releasing the latest iteration, the Renegauge Turkey. Early reviews of the Renegauge indicate that it’s one of the softest-shooting 12-gauge shotguns available, which is definitely going to be welcome news for turkey hunters who are already dreading Patterning Day.
“Renegauge Turkey is not just another shotgun,” Jessica Treglia, Sr. Brand Manager at Savage Arms said. “It’s a Savage. We’re all hunters, and we know what we wanted. Renegauge is an off-the-shelf 12 gauge that can be tailored to fit like a custom gun, and it will reliably cycle anything you feed it—no questions asked.”
The Renegauge Turkey has been designed to fit almost any hunter. The adjustable stock allows for both large and small adjustments to the fit of the gun. Renegauge has interchangeable recoil pads and cheek risers. It also comes with shims that help fine-tune minute adjustments. There are 20 unique ways that Renegauge can be set up, giving each individual shooter complete control over how they interact with the gun. With a tailored fit, shooters will see a notable increase in accuracy and a reduction in perceived recoil.
With its 24” barrel and Mossy Oak camouflage patterns, Renegauge Turkey is easy to maneuver in dense brush and even easier to conceal from anxious jakes. Mossy Oak Bottomland and Obsession patterns are ideal for hunters who work at close distances..and Renegauge Turkey is built for the hunt. With its patented D.R.I.V. (Dual Regulating Inline Valve) gas system, Renegauge Turkey will cycle any shells from 3” Magnums to 2 ¾” target rounds. The D.R.I.V. system ensures excess gas vents before it drives the bolt, resulting in consistent ejection, less felt recoil, and a lightning fast cyclic rate for reliable follow-up shots.
