So I'll try to make this short and simple. I currently have a Savage Axis in .223 on layaway(I owe about 200 on it.) The retailer really made it sound good. I held the rifle and I like the ergonomic feel. However, I've been getting some mixed reviews about this rifle. Most of them are positive, but the few negative reviews are a matter of concern for me. I've heard of problems with the action being clunky and stiff, ejection and extraction problems, as well as horrible trigger pull.(non-acutrigger) Has anyone here experienced the same problems? If so, what is the best way to correct this? I was also wondering if it's possible to apply M4/M16 style iron sights on the rifle. I know it comes drilled and tapped for a scope, but I simply prefer iron sights.
