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.
Both Youth AXIS models carries an MSRP of $475.
