Unless he has full access to a machine shop, yeah, the Axis is pretty limited.
How do you know he doesn't? Again just because some company doesn't make it already doesn't mean your limited.
Actually, no, they aren't all just the same. And you're missing the point. If he buys a new barrel and trigger, the money he saved by going with the cheap rifle is lost. He'll have as much in it or more than a factory Savage or Remington Varmint/Tactical.
Yeah, and he would have a factory rifle for what he spent on a cheaper rifle with a better barrel and better trigger! And yes they are all the same! That's kinda like saying tires are different because they have different tread or size in the end it's still a tire!
There are things called trends where anecdotal evidence has limited applicability. In the end, most people aren't that great of shooters---most of the winners will win with a rifle that's as accurate as they are. The "$2000+ rigs" as you call them, don't get "out shot", the shooters do.
Well the rifle is only as good as the shooter correct? So now we are going back to the mythical "sub MOA all day long" or the "when I do my part" theory here or what? I mean it's in your sig line correct? Please for the love of god let me know when you plan on posting in the shootout thread! Your not the first person that I have called out and won't be the last!
So going by your theory or "trends" with the Gas shootout since 7 out of the 10 are either Factory off the shelf rifles or home builds people should stop spending money on the high dollar guns?? Or is it just all the people that are great shooters just don't want to prove themselves? Maybe they are too good for that you think??
With the stock being the most important part to have wide availability of to get the one that suits the shooter best. Oh, and there's triggers, bases, chassis, and so on. And I'm sure you're aware, many of the best smiths won't touch an Axis, 710, 770, etc. Hell, many don't want to mess with Savage!
Well all be go to hell he made his stock fit him better all with out the need of a aftermarket company! PS they make bases and triggers for the Axis! [img]<>/wink.gif[/img] (chassis are the same as a stock so again it's void) Oh shit I forgot about the all mighty over sized bolt handle! How ever will he be able to become a good shooter without that?? [img]<>/cry.gif[/img]
Oh my certain smith's won't touch a Savage action! [img]<>/shocked.gif[/img] They must be bad! They won't touch them because why? They don't know them? The action's don't require hardly any work so there is no money to made? So what makes a good mechanic?? Is it the one who only works on Ford's or is the one who will work on any make or model???
Did I say anything about what I shoot?
You don't have to! It comes across in your post! [img]<>/wink.gif[/img]
I'm sure you've noticed if you've spent any time here at all, many pet rifles are sold. Check the classifieds. Obviously, things like the bubba'ed stock hurt the resale of a rifle most people wouldn't want anyway. So when the guy spends $400 for a barrel and $120 for a trigger, he's still got a $250 rifle. He could just as easily get a stock Savage 10/12 or Remington 700 and still satisfy his need to tinker and have more money in his pocket.
Again who says he intends on selling this rifle?? But see he can just spin the barrel off and remove the trigger and sell them instead of selling the gun complete. And yes he could have easily done that just like you could have easily never posted in this thread with your bull shit comments! Who's to say he had the money at the time to buy a 700 or 10/12?
Do you have any evidence of the difference in resale of NF, USO, or S&B based on percentage of investment recovered or are you just spouting off bullshit because myself, and others, have given the guy advice (which you don't like) which he solicited?
Well I'm sure if he needs help with his 401k he will give you a call!
Again your advice was he wasted his time! Because his return investment wouldn't be as large blah.... blah.... blah...!
And yes I don't like yours or others that claim he is wasting his time! The guy was just showing off his work and then here comes Mr. money man with his negative comments. So are we safe to say you would say the same thing to Tom Manners if he were to come out with a stock for Axis or 770???
Where the hell do you get off thinking you know what I shoot, my experience, and so on?
I'm just another tough guy on the internet waiting for you targets to be posted! What.... end of the month right???
Meanwhile, since you want to be a smart-ass talking from your ass, my main rifle is a Stiller/Bartlein/Manners/S&B [img]<>/wink.gif[/img]
I sold 2 NF scopes for exactly what I paid for them in the last year.
Congrats your never happy and you throw money thinking it betters you! [img]<>/wink.gif[/img]
