Re: anyone have luck adjusting a savage axis trigger?

this info is money. by doing this you are saving a lot of money and if can stabilize your trigger control and breathing you will get spectacular results . i clipt the trigger right on the range and shot a group @200yds .5" group. i highly recomend this if you appreciate good guns and good marksminship.

Re: anyone have luck adjusting a savage axis trigger?

I got a deal on a used Axis XP in 22-250 for $275. Came with 3 live rounds of Remington Disintegrator and 17 pieces of once fired brass. Previous owner could not live with the trigger, which I estimate was at 6-8 lbs. I did the trigger trick here. I cut one coil at a time until I had 2 complete coils out. I did another 1/2 of a coil tonight and it is very good. I figure it's about a 2 1/2 to 3lb pull now with a tiny bit of creep.

I can't wait to get dies this week to start reloading for it.

There are may how - toos on youtube on the subject of reducing trigger pull on the axis. It is an easy do it yourself job as the above thread said. I really like my Axis 22-250 too. I am thinking of getting another one in 2506 later. Mine was $277 a week ago for the black stock model and included scope mounts.

Haven't bought one yet but was thinking of getting several in 223, with the 1-9" twist for my kids to shoot when they are old enough. A buddy has one in 22-250 and he found a savage accu trigger and put that in it. Took a little fitting but works great I guess. A gunsmith had one laying around and gave it to him cheap.

Re: anyone have luck adjusting a savage axis trigger?

If your buddy has ANY info on how he got an Accutrigger to fit in an Axis action, I would love to see how he did it. I would really like to have an accutrigger in my Axis .223, but in talking to three different gunsmiths and a few other Axis owners, I've been led to believe it was not possible.
If it is, there will be a bunch of very happy Axis owners!
