Axis rifles save money without sacrificing performance. Savage didn’t design a cheaper rifle; they designed a better way to make a Savage, including pillar-bedded barrels with more uniform cooling and greater consistency. These Axis Stainless XP rifles feature a modern design with silky-smooth bolt operation and a detachable box magazine. Drilled and tapped for scope mounts, these XP models come with a 3-9×40 matte blued scope, already mounted and bore-sighted, so it is ready to go on the hunt when you are. They also have a black synthetic stock coupled with a 22″ stainless steel barrel to allow for multi-purpose shooting in multiple locales.
