Renegauge. You read that right folks, Renegauge. That is the name Savage Arms has chosen for their first foray into the semiautomatic shotgun market. The gun takes cues from both the hunting scene and 3 Gun competition, combining modern ergonomics with a long barrel and low capacity. Honestly I'm not quite sure where they're going with this, but hopefully a "tactical" model is on its way.
The Renegauge comes standard with a widened and beveled loading port to facilitate rapid loading. Charging handle and bolt release are oversized for easy operation, even when wearing gloves. The stock is adjustable for lenth of pull, comb height, and cast making for easy customization to fit every shooter. Savage has patented the gas system on the Renegauge, proclaiming increased reliability with reduced felt recoil.
Shooters have their choice of four variants of the Renegauge. MSRP ranges from $1,449 to $1,549 depending on the model they choose.
Renegauge Press Release from Savage Arms
January 03, 2020 - WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – Savage Arms, makers of the most trusted hunting and target rifles in the United States, is proud to introduce RENEGAUGE. The new American-made semiautomatic 12 gauge shotguns are built for field use, offer hunters and competitors a new standard for both fit and function, and include several patented parts and designs—including the Dual Regulating Inline Valve (D.R.I.V.) gas system.
“RENEGAUGE is unlike any other semi-automatic shotgun, and demonstrates our commitment to innovate as an independent company,” said Al Kasper, President and CEO. “This project has been in the works for years because we wanted to enter a new category in a big way. The team in place now did an amazing job getting this to the finish line. Hunters and shooters are going to be amazed with the fit, feel, function and versatility of this shotgun. And it’s a platform we can and will build on—so look for more in the very near future.”
RENEGAUGE has been tested to the extreme—both in the field and in the lab. Everything in the design is intentional and has a purpose. RENEGAUGE looks different because it is—and it brings American-made performance to a new level. The shotgun functions and cycles light loads and magnum field loads with unbelievable consistency and reliability. Avid wing shooters will love the way it swings, competitors will find it at home on the range, and hunters will trust it in the nastiest of conditions.
The D.R.I.V. system provides RENEGAGUE with the unparalleled ability to regulate the gas that cycles the shotgun’s action. Both low-brass target shells and Magnum hunting shells will cycle the action with the same reliability and without any adjustment from the shooter.
This functionality is complimented by how easy RENEGAUGE is to fit to the shooter. From comb height to length of pull, RENEGAUGE can be adjusted to ensure every aspect of its ergonomics matches its user’s needs.
