New Favorite for a new century: in the author’s opinion, no rifle was ever better named. Savage Arms’ New Favorite is a worthy inheritor of this name, and a fun project for the hobby gunsmith
Finding a good Favorite is no longer a challenge. Savage Arms announced the introduction of the new Favorite, the Model 30G in 2000. Frankly, the little rifle is just neat as a pin. In silhouette, it looks just like its predecessor. However, a casual inspection will show a few differences.
In 1920, the Stevens firm was acquired by the Savage Arms Co., which just four years ago introduced the Model 30G, a new version of the beloved old Favorite redesigned with improved safety and modem production methods in mind.
The rifle simply doesn’t need anything. It is already well bedded and with handloads 1/2 MOA is not hard to get. This makes it a heck of a good value at the MSRP of $696. But perhaps best of all is that you don’t have to fight the trigger.
I hope you’ll forgive me a few moments of reflection, but the opportunity to review Savage’s new Cub .22 single-shot rifle evolves strong memories of how I began shooting more than 50 years ago.
What Savage has managed to do is modify the late Nick Brewer’s 1958-design Model 110 bolt action to controlled-round feeding. That’s right! The annular bolt face that used to encircle the cartridge head and a plunger ejector are gone; in their place is a flush bolt face — the bottom half of the face anyway — and an extractor that allows the top round in the magazine to become captive to the extractor as it clears the feed rails, just like on a Mauser, Ruger 77 MK II, or a Winchester Model 70 Classic.
How does this sound — a rifle with a factory standard trigger, designed to be user adjustable over a range of 1.5 to 6 pounds. In addition, the new system is proven scientifically to offer a cleaner, more “crisp” release than competing trigger designs. Finally, the new trigger group is completely safe from accidental discharge if it’s jarred or dropped.
Well designed and well built, this general purpose rifle has everything you need and nothing you don’t!
The new Stevens Favorite, now being made by Savage, wears a 21″ half-round, half-octagon barrel and measures 36 3/8″ in overall length. Scaled to fit younger shooters, the little rifle weighs 4 1/4 lbs. and has an abbreviated 13 1/2″ length of pull. It sports an oil-finished American walnut stock with a straight grip and Schnabel forend.
Savage 110 best-bargain boltgun: The humble Savage 110 performs out of all relation to its modest price
No product stays in production year after year, decade after decade, unless it has something special to offer. The Savage 110 has always excelled in two areas. One is value for the money. The 110 is an extremely strong, safe, reliable and durable bolt-action rifle at a moderate cost. The other area is accuracy. The Savage 110 and its variations have always been notable for their outstanding accuracy.
When my first three-shot group went into a tight .75″ cloverleaf, I figured it was a fluke and that I’d not see another like it. Well, the next group spanned .78″, the next .74″”, and the next .80″!

A rifle of controversy, the Savage Model 10ML has been completely redesigned — not because of flaws, but to please government mandates and alleviate concern from game departments. The ATF did not know which pigeonhole the Model 10ML belonged in, and game departments were not certain that the rifle belonged in “primitive” seasons.
