Savage Axis XP 19231 308 Winchester, $390

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

GUN TESTS GRADE: B
There was much to like about the Savage Axis. While you may opt for the more accurate Remington 783, overall we liked the Savage rifle. The safety is well designed and handy, the detachable magazine easy enough to use, and the rifle is affordable. Accuracy wasn’t the best, but accuracy was acceptable with the provided Weaver riflescope.

The Savage Rifle gave affordable performance. All raters liked the thumb-safety location. The bolt handle was sufficiently roughened for good purchase.The Savage Axis is a light rifle with a fairly thin stock, but shot very comfortably off the bench.
