Butler Creek Releases 25-round Magazine for Savage Arms A17 Rifle
Butler Creek and Savage Arms Collaborate to Offer Even More Performance

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – Butler Creek, a leading producer of firearm accessories has collaborated with industry-leading firearm manufacturer Savage Arms to offer a new 25-round magazine for the wildly popular Savage A17 semiautomatic .17 HMR rifle.

The new Savage Arms approved magazines allow users to spend more time behind the rifle and less time reloading it. These reliable magazines can be loaded traditionally or by using a loading assist lever on the side. The product features a stainless steel spring with an all metal header and feed lips. Two magazines can be clipped together for even more uninterrupted trigger-time. The round count indicator on the side will tell users when ammo is running low.

“We are thrilled to have worked with Savage Arms to best optimize this product,” said Curtis Smith, Butler Creek Product Director. “This is a quality accessory every A17 user should own.”

Butler Creek is a brand of Vista Outdoor. From the world-famous Flip-Open scope covers to smarter ways to carry gear and outfit guns, Butler Creek provides hunters and shooters with the best in comfort and convenience. For more information, please visit http://www.butlercreek.com.
