Savage Model 25 Derived From Savage Model 40

The Model 25 is a derivative of Savage’s excellent little Model 40,
which is chambered for the .22 Hornet.

While the outward appearance of the Models 40 and 25 are very similar,
the new Model 25 has a three-lug bolt with the locking lugs at the front,
has a detachable four-round magazine, and is chambered for the more
powerful .204 Ruger and .223 Remington cartridges, with the rifle
reviewed here being the latter.

The Model 40 is chambered for the .22 Hornet only ....
