Over the years the Savage Axis centerfire bolt action rifle, originally released in 2010 as the “Edge”, has received positive feedback for its design and affordability which make it a great entry level rifle for first timers and occasional shooters. It comes without any compromise on the “out of the box” accuracy known to be a trademark of Savage products. That is why for many years now MDT has been offering its LSS chassis system for the short action Axis rifle which Savage offers in six different calibers (22-250 Remington, .223 Remington, .243 Winchester, .308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor & 7mm-08 Remington).
With a similar concept to the Tikka T3 rifle Savage designed the Axis to have only one receiver size accommodating three long action calibers as well (25-06 Remington, .270 & 30-06 Springfield), however the market did not have much to offer in terms of long action chassis systems for this platform, leaving very little room for customization. It was only a matter of time until MDT would expend it’s LSS chassis product offering to include the Savage Axis LA calibers, compatible with our own, performance proven, 3.560 magazine design.
You can now install your Savage Axis LA rifle in our lightweight LSS chassis system and benefit from our expertise in terms of accuracy, modularity and ergonomics. Our LSS chassis for Savage Axis LA is designed to use MDT’s proprietary 5-round external box magazine which gives you 25% more capacity than the original detachable box magazine from Savage. You can also customize your LSS chassis system with any AR-15 collapsible buttstocks and most AR-15 pistol grips. Once your system is ready, take it to the range to personally experience the increase in accuracy that this system delivers.
