here is Hannibal Missouri

the regular axis with the black plastic stock and skinny barrel was on sale for a long time and im sure still is for $249

the heavy barrel axis with plastic stock was or is $398,,,not sure if that one was axis or axis II,,

if i could have got the heavy barrel in 243 from them i would have owned one ,,,but they dont carry it that way,,,they do in the skinny barrel though

and then i found the 110 tactical,,,and it just kept talking in my ear,,,so thats where that story goes and thats what i got,,in 6.5 CM,,,more money but lots of good features

i just read you want an action,,,i dont think you gona find an axis any cheaper,,,maybe a used one,,maybe,,,believe me i was looking

I'm thinking my 350 legend is going to be reincarnated as a 280 AI.

I have the Savage 110 Tactical Desert and very much like it. I feel like the Varmint Accutrigger and the Accifit Stock with the aluminum mini chassis is well worth the extra expense. For $620 it is a darn good value. It's also a half minute gun with several factory ammo choices.

To the OP, I was at Walmart this morning. Here in PA they have a stainless Axis rifle in .308 for $296 and a blued one for $246 I would wager that your local Walmart would be similar.

Well, i've had a change of direction on the action front.
I'm going to end up taking the Stevens 200 apart, and use that action. I'll save my 250 Savage barrel and if another action comes along i'll screw it onto that.
It was my primary coyote rifle and loaner gun. But i can use the Ruger 77 MKII in 257 Roberts for coyotes.
No, i don't loan that rifle out!

Another reason to go with the 200 action is my stock choice. I've found several Choate stocks, but the screw spacing is different for the Axis action.

I contacted E.R. Shaw. They were my first choice for a barrel. But they will only do up to a 26" barrel. So i'm going with a Douglas instead. Talking with them, they are working with me on a 30" tube and with contours.
