This new variation on the Axis XP features the AccuTrigger, which is adjustable from 2.5 to 6 pounds. The rifle will come with a Weaver Kaspa scope mounted and bore sighted. This is a 3-9×40 variable scope.
Barrels are 22 inches, matte blue on all metal surfaces. The stock is a black molded synthetic. A detachable five rounds magazine rounds out the package. Eight calibers from 223 to 30-06 are offered. MSRP is only $415
Axis barrels can be changed out just like the popular Savage 110 type barrels. In fact our friends at 4D Reamer Rentals LTD. tell us that the barrels are interchangeable. 4D offers Savage pre-fit barrels in more calibers than any other maker we have found. So you can swap the barrel on one of these rifles and have the caliber of your dreams.
Rumor has it that 4D will be introducing a new barrel nut wrench, at the SHOT Show, for Savage smooth barrel nuts, like those found on the Axis series of rifles.
Finally, Savage is offering Youth models on the new Axis II XP series. These rifles will have a 20″ barrel chambered for 243 Winchester. Two camo patterns will be offered: A woodland pattern and the very popular “Muddy Girl”.
