decent rifle and good accuracy for a budget rifle. but the biggest downside is the scope. most combinations usually use a very cheap scope and need much better. better to get the rifle seperately and purchase your own scope and be able to get a much better scope.
another good option is the Marlin X7 series, as they just brought out the 223 this year. one in a 22" sporter style barrel and one in the 26" heavy varmint barrel. i do like the Marlin much better than the Axis. the only thing budget about the Marlin is the price.
