More Savage AXIS Youth Models

For 2013, Savage has expanded the AXIS line of rifles with two new youth models.  Both new bolt-action rifles feature a camo pattern and a bore-sighted scope.

The first new youth AXIS rifle comes with a synthetic stock decked out in Realtree Extra camo.  Mounted at the factory, a Bushnell 3-9 x 40 scope comes standard.  The second rifle comes with a pink and black camo pattern called Muddy Girl on a synthetic stock.  It is also fitted with the same Bushnell scope.

Both of the new youth rifles are available in .223 Remington, .243 Winchester and 7mm-08 cartridges.  These are relatively easy shooting rounds, which when combined with the more appropriate sized stocks on the AXIS youth models, makes for better accuracy and a more enjoyable time afield for children who are learning to hunt.

    I usually hate any camo with pink or neon green in it, but I don’t hate “muddy girl”.

      Yeah, it’s pretty slick. Might be a good safety feature, too. The pattern should make it invisible to deer and the color should help make it visible to other hunters.

      (As an aside, I’m not a hunter, and I’m struck by the number of accidents where hunters shoot someone they think is a deer. If I were deer hunting, I would count legs. If I don’t count four, I wouldn’t shoot. Isn’t it that simple?)
