It is what your use to for a trigger pull for sure . But a 3lb gritty creepy stock trigger with over travel feels like cr^p compaired to a 4lb trigger that has no pre or over travel and brakes like glass. Is way better at distance shooting. Then once you get use to a quality lite trigger pull many stock trigger do s*ck. So if you notice the RB trigger is adjustable between 14oz and 3lb. That can be the difference between a ok rifle and one that is truely enjoyable to shot and aid in accuracy at longer ranges . And if the extra cost is still less than rifle B its worth while.
I have the Axis, and enjoy it. It's not a top tier firearm, but worth every cent I paid for it. Trigger pull is fine for the type of rifle it is, and if you're buying it for hunting, it's perfect. You can drag that thing in the woods all day without worrying about scuffing it up or banging it around.
What part of 'shall not be infringed' confuses people?
the post before me is absolutely correct. for the price you get a nice hunting rifle ex stevens 200. a hunting rifle not a target rifle. most package scopes are junk you will need a upgrade do that and shoot it
I did the $3.00 35 min trigger job on my axis and its 3.12# now . nice and smooth with no play in it . HUGE HUGE HUGE difference in accuracy I went from 1.5" 100 yr groups to covering 3 shots with a dime @100 now after the trigger job. Not that the 1.5" group was bad but I wasnt satisfied .

Could you please describe to this newbie how you performed your trigger job?
Have an Edge, now known as the Axis in .223. Essentially the trigger job purehavoc referred too, probably involved replacing the factory trigger coil spring with a ligher/weaker one and polishing the trigger sear. Factory trigger coil spring has one end that is inserted in the trigger. Some people put something like a set screw into the hole the coil goes into and use it to retain/hold the new spring in place. Replacement springs usually used are same diameter at both ends and these springs are usually found in some Ace, True Value or other such hardware store with a decent assortment of springs. Some just remove a coil or more from the factory spring to reduce its pull weight. I replaced my spring with a weaker one from a hardware store. To hold the new spring in place I shaped the shank of a brass screw to insert it in the hole for the factory coil spring and JB Welded the shank into the hole with some JB Weld on the coil touching the brass shank to insure it stayed in place. I also polished the sear. This got my trigger pull down to around 3 Lbs.
