One of the hallmarks of a Savage rifle is that, without exception, it comes out of the box ready to go shooting with you. Whatever Savage you choose, the factory parts it comes with are better engineered than most aftermarket parts you might think about adding (if the gun weren't a Savage). So when Savage alerts us to a new line of guns that has had an extra layer of precision engineering from the factory, shooters sit up and take notice! It's called the TIMBER Series, and it's all-new for 2024 in a whole family of rimfire calibers and platforms. It's called the TIMBER Series, and it's a testament to Savage’s commitment to excellence in firearms craftsmanship.

The TIMBER Series features three new rimfires, the TIMBER Thumbhole, TIMBERLite Thumbhole and TIMBERLite. Each firearm is available in bolt-action (B-Series) as well as 22 LR semi-automatic (A-Series), and offered in a variety of caliber options including: .22 LR, .17 HMR and .22 WMR. The TIMBER Series offers shooters features like a 20 MOA Picatinny Rail, a 10-round rotary magazine, a barrel threaded with cap for 1/2-28 and thread-in head spacing.

The TIMBER Thumbhole marries precision with elegance, featuring a striking wood ambidextrous thumbhole stock. With a 2.5-6 lb. user-adjustable AccuTrigger and two Sling Studs, this series is crafted for enthusiasts who demand both performance and aesthetics. Experience the perfect blend of form and function with the Savage Arms TIMBER Thumbhole.

The TIMBERLite seamlessly blends tradition and innovation. With a CarbonWood Laminate Stock and Carbon Fiber Wrapped Stainless Steel Barrel, the TIMBERLite rifles are 40% lighter than wood and weigh in at 5.1 lbs. The fusion of cutting-edge materials ensures reduced weight, enhancing portability and maneuverability without sacrificing structural integrity. Featuring a 1.5-4lb. user-adjustable AccuTrigger and three Sling Studs, experience unparalleled accuracy and comfort with these meticulously designed, lightweight rifles.

The TIMBERLite Thumbhole combines the elegance and ergonomics of the TIMBER Thumbhole rifles with the reduced weight and comfortability of the TIMBERLite models. Weighing 5.3 lbs., the TIMBERLite Thumbhole models feature a 2.5-6 lb. user-adjustable AccuTrigger and two Sling Studs. The TIMBERLite Thumbhole offers Savage customers an accurate and well-designed dual-use firearm. With a setup that can be used at a bench and a lighter weight that’s optimal for taking out on a hunt, this rimfire is built for both target shooting and hunting trips.

“This new TIMBER series is perfect for every Savage shooter from seasoned marksmen to newcomers just getting their start,” said Savage Arms’ Rimfire Product Manager Brett McKenna. “The three available lines provide users with options to match their preference, whether that is a classic wood stock or a lightweight option that does not compromise durability. The TIMBER Series promises an unparalleled shooting experience, we’re thrilled to finally announce this extension to the Savage line.” MSRPs $499-$1,030, depending upon model chosen.
