Just picked up a savage axis xp youth in 7mm-08 in "muddy girl camo" with a Bushnell 3-9 at academy for $250 for my wife. Can't find one online for less than $350 or so. Wasn't even shopping for a rifle. Me and my wife were in academy getting some catfish bait for our trip to possum kingdom this week, and decided to go look and see if there were any deals. This one was marked way down. Wife said she wanted her own deer rifle, so I bought it.

They had a bunch of rifles marked way down, but this was by far the best deal.

That is a great deal. I picked one up for my wife late last year and I thought the $299 I got it for was great, this is better. BTW, this gun shoots great.

Got a neighbor that bought one of those in .308 Win. for his girlfriend early last year. Neat rifle, pretty accurate for what it is.

Heck of a deal you got, I think he paid somewhere around $389 at Gander.

Go to Cabela's and get some Hornady Custom Lite ammo, Its very accurate, kills great and has less recoil.

Wife isn't recoil sensitive. But I did think about that if I need to.

Pretty sure it will at least have a timnry trigger before deer season. This one didn't come with an accutrigger. But even with a $100 timney its less than retail.

I thought the Axis XP came with an accutrigger? I wouldn't bother replacing that if it was me.
