Field & Stream Online Editors

Savage-Built Model 16LZ
If you have pined for a rifle in Lazzeroni's 7.82 Patriot short magnum but were unable to cough up the hefty price of a rifle chambered for it, rejoice. Lazz is now offering the Savage-built Model 16LZ, chambered for the Patriot and selling for $749.99. It is all stainless, has a 24-inch barrel, and weighs 6.8 pounds. % 888-492-7247; www.lazzeroni.com.

The U22 Neos
The U22 NEOs represents Beretta's entry into the .22 plinker market. Racy styling and easily interchangeable grips and barrels set the Neos apart from the competition. Completely designed and built in the United States, the Neos comes in blued and stainless models with 41/2- or 6-inch barrels. Price: $256 blued; $299 stainless. % 301-283-2191; www.berettausa.com.
