Video Review: Savage 93 Minimalist Rifle

Trim, simple, ergonomic and Savagely accurate ... the 93 Minimalist .22 rifle deserves a spot in your gun safe!

posted on March 22, 2023

The engineers at Savage Arms know that, although bells and whistles are nice, what shooters really need is a simple, reliable and accurate rifle that invites hours of practice. That's the new 93 Minimalist, a new-for-2023 bolt-action rifle chambered in .22WMR that combines a classic laminate design with modern aesthetics in order to achieve a lightweight platform with improved ergonomics.

The Minimalist features an 18-inch carbon-steel button-rifled barrel with a 1:16 twist to wring all possible accuracy from the .22WMR, for excellent downrange performance. New and seasoned shooters alike will love Savage's famous user-adjustable AccuTrigger ... long known as the factory trigger that will spoil you for all future factory triggers. The Minimalist's sporter-style stock is available in two laminate color combinations: brown (shown) and a green-and-tan. A 10-round detachable box magazine comes standard. 

In this terrific video from our friends at American Rifleman, you'll learn more about the Savage 93 Minimalist and get to see it in action. For more information, visit!
