Re: Savage AXIS or marlin XL7

    Not true, they are completely different rifles. They share more features with a Savage than the Rem Model 7.
    But the original Marlin JM stamped guns are generally more desireable by most.

    Yeah, I just looked at it, the do have barrel nut, but its not Savage the bolt is different but there are some similarities when it comes to boltheads also I found this picture for comparison



    just wonder if there are any pre-fit barrels for Marlin you can buy, probably you can change barrel same way just like on Savage, you know there are conversion kits for Rem-700 and you can outfit it with barrel nut...

    I have a marlin XS7 in 7mm-08, and savage axis rifles in 223, 243, 7mm-08, and 308. I havent done any load work up with the savages yet but i prefer the XS7, mainly because of the much better trigger. But, my 223 rem will put 10 fed 55 gr fmj's into 1" groups at 100 yards.

    Nice link as I would look at a 26inchbarrel for it but it is a shame The export cost would make the barrel cost as much or more than the original rifle! roughly $535 for a marlin here, and around $500 U.S. by the time they get the permit to send the barrel (roughly the price of the rifle at our exchange rate) and then I assume there is still a postage cost as well. I wonder if MAB or madco have an appropriate barrel in oz?
