Saw one of these at academy and was wondering how accurate they are. Anybody have any experience with one?
Purehavoc, the M770 isn't anywhere near the rifle the Savage Axis is. i owned one M770 in the past, and was glad to get rid of it!
given that they are pretty close in price, i would buy the Axis over the 770 without hesitation. personally i do find the triggers on my X7's better than the Axis triggers. but like i said, all in all the Axis is a very fine rifle for the price.You sir are exactly right but they are priced relatively close and for the money the Savage is by far the better gun even with the heavy trigger . The Remmys trigger is even worse and the action was not smooth , my buddy sold his for a axis also
What's the 2$ trigger job?purehavoc said:I have this zeroed at 200 so its a tad high at this 100 yard target using cheapo Remington UMC's
1" squares . I also did the $2-3 trigger job and I ended up with a 3.18# trigger . I am more than happy with my Axis , cheap, accurate and reliable . The action on this rifle is much smoother than a Remmy 770 which is about the same money
Got the same rifle and had the same problem. I could only find some very high dollar rings. Lol. I don't remember the brand.Travis896 said:I just bought an axis in .308 and i love it so far. It was kind of a pain trying to find a scope and rings because of the mounts. I still have to put my head farther towards the front than i would like but i think theres a lot more pros than cons.
