Stevens Debuts NEW 555E Over-and-Under 16 Gauge Shotgun


Stevens by Savage Arms has had a popular line of Over-and-Under shotguns for roughly 5 years now with their 555 series. The good quality, affordable price, and diverse shotgun caliber offerings have made them a hit with price-conscious consumers. They also have an improved or enhanced series dubbed the 555E Over-and-Under shotgun line. A NEW chambering being brought into the fold now is the 16 Gauge which has just debuted. All of the specifications you can come to expect for the 555E Over-and-Under 16 Gauge can be read below as presented by Stevens:

  • Chrome-Lined Carbon Steel Barrels
  • Turkish Walnut Stock
  • Lightweight Aluminum Receiver w/ Tang-Mounted Safety
  • Single Selective Mechanical Trigger
  • Manual Extractors
  • 5 Interchangeable Choke Tubes


As you can see, the enhanced version of their standard model 555 is quite the looker. The Turkish walnut stock compliments the silver aluminum receiver beautifully and the cut checkering is a final masterful touch. By the looks of it you would tend to believe that the 555E is a $1,000+ shotgun, but it is actually much more affordable than that. Stevens and Savage Arms had this Press Release statement surrounding the debut of the 555E 16 Gauge:

“The field- and trap-tested platform is light and handles fast, thanks to a lightweight aluminum receiver that’s scaled to gauge and reinforced by a steel insert. It’s also loaded with features, including a stylish Turkish walnut stock and chrome-lined, 28-inch carbon steel barrels.”


At the moment, if a prettier Over-and-Under shotgun is what trips your trigger, or if you are more akin to something more simple, Stevens has you covered in both areas for 16 Gauges. You can now order both a standard 555 or the 555E in 16 Gauge. Their associated price-points as well as a bit more information can be read below as presented by Stevens:

  • 555 Enhanced 16 Gauge | 28” Barrel | SKU 22179 | MSRP $879
  • 555 16 Gauge | 28” Barrel | SKU 22178 | MSRP $705

So the question remains, what do you think? Is this something that you would want to open your wallet for and take to the range? Or is this something you would pass on in place of something else? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments below! We always appreciate your feedback.
