Savage introduced a line of rifles - named origianally - "The Edge" - and that moniker did not last long.
They are back now - calling this line "The Axis".
This is - in my opinion - the first screw up that Savage has made in quite some time.
They did not sell originally - and if I had to guess - they are not going to selll this time.
Lose the Accutrigger and you lose sales - for Savage at least.
If someone was going to buy an entry level rifle from Savage - just buy the Stevens.
They are bone accurate - they are a Savage w/o the adjustable trigger.
I love Savage - my allegience runs deep and true - but I do not like this move.
There are too many "cheap" rifles out there - and Savage already had the best one of the lot in the Stevens - why muddy the water?
I guess they had to... to try to "keep up" - but I label this as a failed experiment.
Time will tell if I am correct....
