    I just bought a savage edge/axis chambered in 223, and I find it strange I cant find even different kinds of stocks for it, it was cheap do I ain't complaining just wondering if their are different stocks or other aftermarket mods for it

    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.

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

    Alright, and whats the deal with the magazines a friend of mine says you can simply stick a ar15 mag in it since they both shot 223? 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...

    Not really. Different models (and calibers) use different magazines. The one for your gun just happens to be $5 cheaper than ours.

    Should have done more research before buying. Those rifles shoot ok and what you have for stock is it. If you want a savage to buld with the stevens 200 is the one to buy or a mossberg mvp for a 5.56 /223 rifle that uses AR mags
