  • I was recently in a large gun shop and looked at a Savage Axis, seemed like a good gun the action was smooth, barrel looked alri

    I was recently in a large gun shop and looked at a Savage Axis, seemed like a good gun the action was smooth, barrel looked alright but when I went to pull the trigger it went click, click, SNAP! and just wasn't very smooth, I have never owned a Savage and am just wondering if this is standard for their rifles. Now I am not picky nor am is my shooting drastically affected by a creepy trigger, but I was surprised to find this on a rifle of such good report and high accuracy.

    The Axis is a POS. Other savages get very good results. I personally don't like the looks of the savage, specifically the bolt.

      I would concur with jay. The other savages have the accu-trigger which is pretty decent and they have good barrels making them accurate, but to me they are ugly rifles.

        Ditto. The Accutrigger is a thing of beauty. The Axis is not but what do you expect for a few hundred bucks? I'm sure they get the job done. The consensus over the last couple of years on here seems to be folks feel like it is worth ponying up the money for the Accutrigger.
        I have two rifles with the Accutrigger and they are light and crisp as you could ask for.

          People may sell an accurate rifle but they WILL sell a poor shooting one so the odds at a show are mathematically against a tack driver. Especially a lower end weapon. I try to buy new when I can or from a dealer I trust. Mainly because I have never let a real shooter go but have dumped a few lemons.

            I am not sure that I would categorize a cheap POS like the Axix as a rifle of good report....

              The Axis is an entry level rifle and like all things you get what you pay for.

                My Savage has an Accu-trigger that is very nice with a clean break. Everything about that rifle is nice.
