    Savage is really screwing up on overpricing their rifles lately. At one time Savage was the “go to rifle” for the average working person who wanted a quality rifle at an affordable price. Now the average person has to save for months on end to get a good rifle which the cheap Savage Axis line is not! So when your numbers start falling Savage you only have yourself to blame!
