Savage Arms knew it had something special with its AXIS series of bolt-action centerfire rifles. The manufacturer has gone and done one better for 2014.
The company has released the new AXIS II XP scoped-rifle series.
Like the original AXIS, the AXIS II XP features a silky-smooth bolt, a detachable box magazine and a button-rifled barrel. It also includes Savage’s user-adjustable AccuTrigger. Available in a wide range of calibers, the AXIS II XP weighs 6.5 pounds and measures 43.875 inches long.
The rifle package includes a Weaver KASPA 3-9x40mm scope, which comes mounted and boresighted. The optic features one-piece-tube construction, fully multi-coated lenses, nitrogen-purging, fog-free viewing and crisp ¼-inch MOA adjustments. It carries the Weaver Limited Lifetime Guarantee.
Savage also offers the AXIS II XP in two youth models chambered in 243 Win. Both feature a 3-9x40mm Weaver KASPA scope mounted on a compact rifle with a 20-inch barrel and an overall length of 40 inches to better fit small-framed individuals.
Youth models are available with a black composite stock or a composite stock dipped with Muddy Girl pink camouflage.
The AXIS II XP retails for $489. The AXIS II XP Youth retails for $489 and the AXIS II XP Youth in Muddy Girl pink camo retails for $525.
