Beautiful gun. That looks similar to the remmy 700 action. Do they use the same style action?

the Axis is a good rifle, but i will throw in my suggestion, the Marlin X7 series of rifles. they even have them in youth models that might fit your wife better because of LOP. they are very accurate, very well built and the fit an finish are excellent. priced very decently also.

personally, i have shot several different Axis rifles over the past couple of years, and honestly, they are a good rifle with decent accuracy. but i like the Marlin X7's a liitle better. that's just my personal preference. for me, i like how the Marlin fits me better than the Axis. choosing the Axis would still be a good choice though.

Yes. The scope is OK but thats it. I didnt have money for a better one but get new rings for the scope the defaults are to small and the scope touches the barrel. But for 300$ and a scope if you can afford a better one there is nothin better.

Centurian22, IMO, the Axis is a decent rifle with better than good accuracy and at a very good price. also IMO, they are worth every dime spent for what you get. my liking the Marlin X7 series better just comes from an ergonomics reason, the Marlin fits me better. but i have no hesitation in suggesting that someone give the Axis a try, because it might be the one that suits their needs and it would be a good rifle if it does suit their needs. it's a good option for those on a budget too, because of the price, but it is a pretty good rifle.
