Savage® has earned a reputation for producing economical, well-built arms, and that tradition continues with the Stevens Model 555 Over/Under Shotgun. The 555 is made with a lightweight aluminum-alloy receiver with a steel insert centered right over the firing pin holes that reinforces the standing breech to handle any load. The barrels are made from carbon steel, chrome lined for enhanced pattern uniformity, and are topped with a ventilated rib with 1 brass bead front sight. The barrels hinge on steel trunnions instead of a full-length hinge pin, and a rugged extractor elevates both shells for easy removal. The Model 555 has mechanical triggers, which set the trigger on the second barrel when the trigger for the first barrel is pulled; unlike inertia triggers, which set the second trigger off the recoil of the first shot. With mechanical triggers, if the first barrel doesn't fire, the shooter only has to pull the trigger again for the second barrel to fire.
