    Well, I went and did it, I ordered the Savage Axis in 6.5 Creedmoor. I saw the rebate offered until 12/31 and decided to jump on it.

    Should only cost me a little over $200 after rebate, too good to pass up.

    I'll post up pics when it arrives!!

    Smoking deal!!!!

    I know you've been wanting one for a while too.

    And savage makes some accurate guns too.

    Will stand by patiently waiting for a range report once you get it set up.

    I picked up the gun yesterday. First impressions are good. Finish and function of the bolt are pretty good for a $300 rifle. The stock is a nice for a plastic one but not very rigid. That will be replaced. Pretty much the only things that will remain in the end is the receiver and barrel.

    While I have a general plan, the specifics are still TBD.

    Only definite is a Timney trigger.

    I'll try to get some pics up this weekend.

    Savage/creedmore rifle, timney trigger.

    You bought a gun, you're going to end up with a fricken long range laser.

    Here are some pics. I dry fired it a few times and I actually impressed with the stock trigger. It's not an acutrigger but it has very little creep. Axis_001.jpg Axis_002.jpg Axis_003.jpg Axis_004.jpg Axis_005.jpg Axis_006.jpg Axis_007.jpg
