    Axis barrel


    Does Savage make any of the Axis rifles with a heavy barrel? I didn't see any on their website but that isn't saying I didn't overlook them.

    There were some Walmart specials around. I’m sure you can find one.
    Awesome shooting rifles with a few homegrown modifications.

    They offered a heavy barrel model for a year, maybe two, but not sure if it's still in the catalog or not.

    Mine is. Walmart. They made them in .223, .308, and .22-250 IIRC. Maybe 6.5CM as well. 22" barrel for my .223. It was not a catalog item back then (2017)

    ^^^That looks like a pretty good buy. Do you know about what a gun dealer would charge to handle the paperwork? I am sure it varies but if you could give me a ballpark figure it would be appreciated.

    That's what Walmart charged for the same rifle. Don't know if they still carry them. Walmarts in this state stopped selling firearms because of a state law about FFL's (all FFL's MUST do a firearms transfer if requested by a customer).

    i don't know why so many places sell guns as a package. I am not saying the scope is junk but I would definitely replace it. I might call and see if they would sell it without the scope cheaper. More than likely they won't but I hate buying something I won't use. I suppose you could sell it but doubt you could get much for a basic scope anywhere.

    The scope isn't horrible. It is capable of holding a zero and adjustments worked. It would be good enough for hunting. I like having elevation and windage hash marks so I put a Vortex Diamondback on mine.

    You could probably have a shop keep the scope but doubt they'd give you any money off. When I bought mine I checked and the scope was worth about $25. I gave the package scope to someone who could use it.

    Why do they offer package deals? Cause to the average buyer it saves them money.
