Savage Axis XP Rifles Redesigned and Released

The Savage Axis XP just got a facelift every hunter will appreciate.

When Savage Arms introduced the Axis XP hit the market years ago, it quickly became one of the most popular centerfire rifles for hunters looking for a cheaper option.

Its accuracy and reliability as a durable hunting rifle quickly became common knowledge, making it one of the go-to recommendations for hunters just starting out.

However, even though Savage already hit the ground running with a solid budget rifle, they didn't slow up, but rather decided to refine it anywhere they could. And, that persistence leads us to the new-and-improved Axis XP, which could become the most practical entry-level rifle on the entire market.

Updated with a new, more ergonomic synthetic stock design, the Axis XP fits more comfortably in a hunter's hands than ever before, while also allowing for top-notch shooting efficiency.

It also features a carbon steel, sporter-contour barrel with a matte-black finish, which employs button rifling for improved long-range accuracy.

Additionally, this new rifle is ready to hit the woods as soon as you get it home, as it comes bore-sighted with a 3-9x40mm Weaver scope.

Available in standard (13.5-inch length of pull) and compact (12.5-inch length of pull) options, it also comes with thread-in headspacing, a floating bolt head, a detachable box magazine, Weaver-style two-piece bases and a recoil pad.

The Axis XP Standard size has an MSRP of $415 and comes in the following calibers: .223 Remington, .22-250 Remington, .243 Winchester, .25-06 Remington, 6.5 Creedmoor, .270 Winchester, 7mm-08 Remington, .308 Winchester and .30-06 Springfield.

The Axis XP Compact comes in at the same MSRP, but only comes chambered in .223 Remington, .243 Winchester and 7mm-08 Remington.

This bolt-action rifle comes in at 7.32-7.365 pounds with a trigger pull weight of 4-7 pounds.

It's now available for purchase.
