    The latest fad in the optics world these past few years has been the move to utilizing a higher magnification zoom lens in rifle scopes. For decades the industry standard was either a 3x (3-9x, 4-12x, etc.) or 4x (2.5-10x, 4-16x, etc.) zoom lens, but in recent years we have seen an ever increasing number of scope lines featuring 5x, 6x, 6.5x and even 8x zoom lenses.

    Savage has offered a detachable box magazine option on most of their bolt-action centerfire rifles since 1966. Over the years the design has changed and most recently we have seen some different variations of the system from model to model which has created a lot of confusion. This article should help clear up some of that confusion.

    Unless you've been hiding under a rock the past six to eight years, you're probably aware that a new breed of rifle scopes has emerged that features a 6-power zoom lens. While for decades the standard zoom lenses used in rifle scopes has been either a 3-power or 4-power, this new breed allows manufacturers to offer variable power scopes with a much broader range ...

    In the first three installments of this build we have covered most all of the main components and gunsmithing work that has been done, so all that’s left now are a few small details – most of which pertain to the appearance of the finished product. As such this last installment will be pretty short and sweet. ...

    I have always been a fan of the fast handling offered by rifles fitted with a 20-inch barrel, so when Savage announced a new heavy barreled model with a 20-inch barrel I was keenly interested and immediately put in a quest to receive one in .223 Remington. ...

    Suppose you're a newcomer in the arms-making industry - an upstart battling giants that have devoured small competitors. Suppose you've invented an amazing rifle - but no one knows about it. And suppose the rugged men of the American frontier won't even try your rifle because they figure the caliber is too small to slap down a grizzly or an elk. What do you do? You prove that your gun can stop a whale! It's as simple as that. . . if the year is 1900 and if you're as brilliant as Arthur Savage.

    When I received this scope from Redfield I was excited as I have not done a scope review in quite a while so it's a nice change of pace. Also, I had been wanting to check out the quality of the new Redfield optics since they are now a division of Leupold. This scope gave me that opportunity.

    In this third installment of our Savage Axis Build series we will be focusing on the barrel and the stock. As often happens, due to availability and other factors my build was forced to deviate some from my original plan. This change resulted in a significant cost increase for this part of the project, but we should still be able to stay under our estimated total cost for the build.

    Redfield Optics has gone tactical in 2013 with the introduction of their all new BattleZone line of rifle scopes. Since Leupold & Stevens purchased the Redfield Optics brand in 2008, they have been introducing value conscious optics to their line up while keeping in line with Leupold’s noted quality and ruggedness. The new BattleZone is no exception as it joins other Redfield product lines such as Revolution and the Revenge.

    Unlike other offerings from Redfield where the focus has been on reliable and affordable hunting optics, the BattleZone is for the cost conscious tactical shooter that wants a scope that can be configured for either the .223/5.56mm NATO or the .308/7.62 ...

    The heart and soul of any rifle is the action, and the Savage Axis action is an ideal candidate to base a custom rifle upon. The $300 entry price for an Axis rifle gives you an action that is suggestively more rigid than a standard Savage 110-series action, and it’s more than a hundred dollars less than the cheapest new 110-based donor rifle.

    When it comes to custom rifles it seems everyone has their own idea of exactly what a custom is. Some think changing something as simple as the bolt handle or trigger on an otherwise stock gun makes it a custom. Others feel that at minimum a “custom” has to have at least an aftermarket barrel or stock to warrant the title. Still others feel that to truly be a custom everything except the action itself has to be aftermarket. And last but not least are those who feel that the true definition of a custom means building a rifle completely from scratch using a “custom” ...
