Mossberg 100ATR vs Savage Axis

Postby shootermedic816 » Sun Oct 02, 2011 9:39 pm

What do you guys think? I am in the market for an entry level rifle to deer hunt with. I currently have a modified Mosin-Nagant with a scope on it that I deer hunt with and my muzzle loader as well. I am wanting to upgrade into a more modern style rifle. I like both the Mossberg 100ATR and the Savage Axis both in .308 caliber. What are your thoughts?
Thanks!

You know, either of them are good rifles. IMO the savage is a little better. I know several people that have one and I have shot one in .30/06. They are actually really accurate. I also like them a little better since they come with a mag. The mossberg doesn't. Head over to ****'s at Zona some time and we can talk in person :thumbsup: .

Which one is better priced? I was quoted around 350 for gun and scope on the Mossberg. Are the Savages in the same ball park? Which one can I get the better deal on at Dicks?

The mossberg is 349.99 regular price and the savage is 379.99 regular price. The scopes that come on both of them work, but are really cheap. Keep an eye out in the sunday paper for our ads because pretty much from now until the end of december we will run sales on guns on and off. And they will get cheaper than that.

Do you guys keep both in stock so I can look at both of them and then make a decision?

Sorry for the delayed reply. Yes we have both of them on the rack.

If you are paying $379.99 for a Savage Axis combo you are getting robbed blind. We sold them all year last year at $289.99 and I know Dunham's ran them down to $279.99 at one point. That being said, for an entry level gun, the Savage is tops. However, there are much better options out there for under $500, including the Savage 111 FCXP3 non Accu-Trigger package that should run you right around $400

I thought the 379 price range was a little high. I have a friend who is an FFL holder and he quoted me on the Edge last year at under 300. So I figured it would be near the same price for the Axis. But I am a fan of the Walnut stock look that you can get with the Mossy. So I am still deciding.

If you want a walnut stock, look at the Savage 110 GXP3, should run you under $600, but it has an actual Walnut stock, not some synthetic knock-off and the Accu-Trigger, can't beat it.

Sorry if I wasn't clear. The stainless steel combo is a hundred bucks more than just the standard camo stock, matte blued barrel.
