Stephen Posted September 26, 2013 Share Posted September 26, 2013 Hey guys, so I'm in the market to purchase my first hunting rifle for this upcoming deer season and wondered if anyone had any experience with the Savage axis .270 or Marlin XL7 .270? I almost bought the Savage Axis up at Gander Mt today for a good price of $279. It seemed to have great reviews for the inexperienced hunter, but got less than desirable reviews from the experienced crowd. I found a used Marlin XL7 for $299 and I'm thinking about jumping on it. New ones go for about $400. Seems to have a better trigger and stainless steel barrel. Any thoughts? I'm open for other suggestions if anyone has any on some other rifles <$400. Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
