Savage Axis II XP 57095 308 Winchester

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

This rifle neatly solves a lot of problems. You do not have to purchase a rifle then select a scope and sight the rifle in. Purchase the rifle with a bore-sighted scope, and you will be on the paper at 100 yards, with little final adjustment to be made. The Axis II was reliable and cannot be faulted on any major count. It works well, it is accurate enough for hunting to well past 100 yards, and it is affordable. With the new stock design and AccuTrigger, the rifle is superior to the original Axis rifle and is a solid Best Buy.

A two-position safety is part of the Savage Axis II design that we liked.
We have tested several Savage Axis rifles with steady, reliable results for an economy rifle. The Axis is a critical winner. A new stock design is a considerable improvement over the older Axis rifle stock.
The Savage Axis bolt is smooth enough in operation and does not bind. When fired quickly, the Savage Axis performs well.
Cheek weld is good, and the Axis II fits the shoulder well. While it isn't expensive, the Bushnell scope works fine.
The Axis II features a steel magazine that seems the most robust of the test.
