Does anyone have one of these?
I just got one and won't have time to fool with it for a while and was just looking for some general reviews from someone who has the gun.
FYI: Academy currently has them on sale for 199.00 after the manufacture rebate.

My dad bought on and it's in my safe. I haven't shot it yet but the trigger will not get below 5# on it.

The Savage Axis was on sale with a scope for under $300. My buddies dad bought one in 30-06, said it shot great. Not sure where he bought it, they live near Corsicana.

I have been looking at this, in the 308, for a week or two. For $199 from Academy with the rebate, I guess I will have to find out! Looking around on other sites they have good reviews, everyone pretty much says its a good cheap rifle.

I figured you can't go too wrong for 199.00
I got a 22-250.
I'll scope it and start tinkering with some loads after deer season.

Hm! That's quite odd, both Academy and the TC website state that it is."Crisp, adjustable, single-stage trigger"

I guess only one way to truly find out...

I haven't measured the trigger pull but it doesn't feel too bad, no creep but I'm guessing it is more than 3 lb.
