Forget everything you know about entry-level rifles. The AXIS Series shatters the meaning of the term, with accuracy and features you'd expect from rifles that cost hundreds of dollars more.
The redesigned AXIS rifle from Savage offers hunters even better out-of-the-box performance at the same affordable price, in a wide variety of full-size and compact models and a complete spectrum of popular hunting calibres.
In addition to a new re-designed tough composite stock with improved ergonomics, the AXIS is loaded with features that deliver tack-driving accuracy on every shot, including a button-rifled barrel, thread-in barrel headspacing, and a convenient detachable box magazine.

Savage's new A22R Repeater is the most convenient and easy to use rimfire rifle on the market. The A22R Repeater combines modern ergonomics with a handy repeating action that is intuitive and simple to use, leaving you free to concentrate on your target not on the rifle.
The A22 series has a well deserved reputation for tack-driving accuracy and for good reason. The unique zero-tolerance headspacing design mates the barrel to the action with a barrel locknut just like on the centrefire models. This allows headspace to be set exactly to minimum with zero tolerance on every individual firearm, resulting in superb accuracy.
NIOA has successfully tested this rifle with CCI Subsonic 40gr HP (C56) 22LR ammunition and it has proven to still function and cycle reliably with this relatively low velocity ammunition.
The A22R's accuracy, reliability and light weight make it an ideal option for a variety of rimfire roles, including small-game hunting, target shooting and casual plinking.
