After more than 100 years without a handgun in its catalog of firearms, Savage Arms has announced a new micro-compact 9 mm EDC pistol: the Stance. The launch marks Savage’s return to concealed carry and self-defense, and is its first step back into the largest segment of the firearms market. Savage says the Stance is the first of what will be a complete family of handguns.

“Since Savage was sold in July 2019, President and CEO Al Kasper publicly stated that Savage Arms would be a complete firearm company,” said Robert Gates, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Savage Arms.

“Stance is another momentous milestone for Savage,” added Jessica Treglia, senior brand manager at Savage Arms. “While this isn’t Savage’s first concealed-carry pistol, and certainly not our first handgun, it has been more than a century since we focused on compact pistols purpose-built for every day carry.” Treglia said the Stance is the first in a new series of handguns that will meet the accuracy and reliability standards expected by Savage customers, and a further demonstration of Savage’s commitment to build the best, most complete line of American made firearms.

Stance utilizes a chassis as the serialized component of the pistol, which gives Savage the flexibility to offer a wide variety of grip frames that all feature aggressive stippling texture that wraps 360 degrees. Stance comes with two interchangeable back straps for small or large sized grips, both at the popular 18° angle, making Stance an intuitive and easy to control firearm.

The pistol will be available in various sight configurations, and in three finishes: Black, Flat Dark Earth and Gray.
