It's an entry level firearm.Not too many companies are going to waste time/money investing in aftermarket items for them.

I would invest in a great scope. Enjoy your axis as is until you spot something you can't live without.

not anything i know of. like Hillbilly said, it's an entry level rifle and more than likely, not going to be a lot of aftermarmet parts and accessories for.

if you want a rifle with lots of support in the aftermarket, get a Mauser or a Remington M700 and build to your hearts content.

if you like the rifle, then just enjoy it for what it is.

A lot of stocks are not made specifically for one rifle. They'll make a generic blank and then you have to shape it to fit the receiver. I've never done that so I don't know where you would get one, but this stock would probably work:

Alternatively, you can start from scratch: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=gun+stock+blank

Or if you'd prefer a Savage (I always do) look the the 10/110 series.

I heard to make it use regular clips ya gotta do some kind of outboard conversion cuz I have a 5 round mag and my friend says ar15 mags cost almost same just bought another mag online including shipping, ended up 37.99$

The gunsmithing required to make the axis take an AR mag would cost just as much as the rifle. Forget it. Savage magazines are pretty expensive. The ones for our 16 in 30-06 are pushing $50. It's a ridiculous price, but they're quality mags...
