Savage Axis Misfires

Postby TheBigTim » Wed Jan 04, 2012 2:46 pm

I have a Savage Axis (22-250)

My first day out with it i fired 10 rounds and had 3 misfires. (primers were not touched)

I took it back to the dealer and they repaired it.
They said it was a loose firing pin or trigger pin? Not sure which i should have paid more attention!

I took it back into the field and fired 32 rounds. the 18th round was a misfire!
Other than that 1 misfire the gun was fine!

Should i make a big deal over that one misfire and take it back to the dealer again or should i simply use the gun and shut up?
how common is it to have one misfire in 32 rounds?

Have you been shooting the same ammo the whole time or have you tried switching ammo brands?

Yeah, Tried 3 different types of ammo.
Had misfires with 2 of the 3 types.
When i do have a misfire, there are no dent in the primers at all.

Well that sounds like a gun defect then. Take it back and get it fixed right or call Savage and make them fix it. There's absolutely no reason a new gun should misfire at all out of the box.

Savage has pretty good customer service. Call them and have them deal with it.

You probably have a "Lemon" bolt and it needs to be replaced.

It happenens every now and then to all the rifles made,no matter who makes them.

Lots of parts that can be off just a little,to make for a long day in the field. Maybe a phone call
to the main office to see what they think is best,then go from there.

Most companys stand behind their equipment, just a matter of waiting til it gets back to you and where it has to come from, one reason a local dealer is nice but not if they are unqualified.
