    Anyone have a Savage Axis .223 or shot one? I really don't want to spend alot of money on a gun I will not use much and it seemed like a good price for the gun and comes with a scope. I figured its not the top of the line, but might be a good started gun. Any thoughts?

    Thanks,

    BR

    Tried one out, did not like it at all. Rather cheaply made, and rough fit. I am also not a fan of the non-open top bolt action. They have more of an ejection port. Trigger was also pretty heavy.

    I ended up with a Savage XP10 in .223 and have been very happy.

    Go with a Stevens if you are looking at the low end of low end bolts.

    The included scopes are junk, so just know that, don't complain when it isn't perfectly clear, doesn't track correctly... On and on
