Available in short and long action forms, the X7 shows considerable Savage 110 design influence, particularly in its receiver, barrel attachment, bedding, extractor, trigger system and bolt knob. Its round receiver is drilled from 4140 steel bar stock with a generous ejection port. The 22" sporter contour barrel is threaded into the receiver and secured by a locking collar, in the Savage manner. A "square bottomed washer" type recoil lug is trapped between the barrel and receiver. The receiver is drilled and tapped for an included, one-piece, scope mounting base, a nice extra.
