When Savage Arms engineered the AXIS, it created one of the most popular bolt-action centerfire rifles in America. For 2014, the company built upon this value-packed platform to create the new AXIS II XP scoped-rifle series.
Like the original AXIS, the AXIS II XP features a sleek design, silky-smooth bolt, detachable box magazine and a button-rifled barrel. It also includes Savage’s user-adjustable AccuTrigger. Available in a wide range of calibers, the AXIS II XP weighs 6.5 pounds and measures 43.875 inches long.
The rifle package includes a Weaver KASPA 3-9x40mm scope which comes mounted and boresighted. The optic features one-piece-tube construction, fully multi-coated lenses, nitrogen-purging, fog-free viewing, and crisp ¼-inch MOA adjustments. It carries the Weaver Limited Lifetime Guarantee.
Savage also offers the AXIS II XP in two youth models chambered in 243 Win. Both feature a 3-9x40mm Weaver KASPA scope mounted on a compact rifle with a 20-inch barrel and an overall length of 40 inches to better fit small-framed individuals. Youth models are available with a black composite stock, or a composite stock dipped with Muddy Girl pink camouflage.
