James K.: Hi, just noticed when you put bolt back in rifle, looks like the baffle
cutout was 180 degrees off I think. it's the.piece behind the lugs. That
back lug part will swivel 360 degrees after assembled. The cutout part
needs to line up with the exhaust port hole in the receiver for safety when
bolt is closed. Looks like rifle will function with baffle cutout in either
position.. I checked my book to see how it needs to line up. Thanks for
Efstathius Placidas: So the little ring sits on top of the spring? Basically is sits between the
2 springs when assembled, right?
Claudio Infante: Hey buddy, thank you for the Video on the Savage Edge /Axis bolt
disassembly and reassembly. It has really help me since I just got one
too.. Great job..
theoputdoorsmissouri: To Cory Montgomery. Take it off the stock and see if that helps. I'm a
hands on guy unfortunately. Not much help sorry.
Mr1000fucks: Hi does your bolt feels sticky when pushing it upward and back?
Zachary Hein: Lol you make it look easy to remove the first hex bolt. I tried for an hour
to get it loose no luck. How am I supposed to clean my firing pin when the
bolt was installed by thor?
ojibwesavage1: To get the bolt in to fired after cycling the bolt put bolt in half way
hold it and squeeze the trigger and bring bolt down slow and it will
Sam Buck: its easyjust to put your roostering pin in place before screwing in your bolt
assy screw, works for me anyway!
Zach Droog: To put that little thing back in place take a rag put it over the button
then take a 5/8 open end wrench and set it on where it hooks and twist it
to where you here the little click..
Joe Preciado: Got my axis yesterday and I am not happy at all. Today I was excited to go
and shoot it and guess what? That stupid knob was in a fired position!
Could not slide the bolt in or out, not one round shot oh I was pissed! I
used a string to pull that knob in positon, then after 20 rounds, a fired
round got stuck in the chamber. So, I'm S.O.L. Stuck with a rifle that is
theoputdoorsmissouri: I hate to tell you this but i don't think it is the rifles fault.I don't
think these guns were made to shoot thousands of rounds.I just hope you
don't use this one instance to judge the entire line of savage.Good luck
friend and thank you for the comment.
GhostSniper898: u also have to hold the trigger
matt986423: Dry fire that thing. You have to function test it after taking it apart
snap cap or not. Plus it's fine nothing will happen to it.
Matthew Temple: how on earth did he get his bolt to come out. i am sitting here pressing in
that button over and over and the bolt wont come out
Joe Preciado: Used, and it is identical to yours, o.d. green, good lookin' rifle, but
poor poor performance boo hoo!
theoputdoorsmissouri: Hey thanks for the comment!! I think dry firing will ruin a rim fire and
its a bad practice in general.What you need to understand is the primer
cushions the firing pin otherwise it slams against parts it doesn't normal
hit just a bad idea in general. Thanks again please subscribe.
theoputdoorsmissouri: thanks for the comment!!
theoputdoorsmissouri: Hold the trigger down
Brian Kennedy: I have a 7mm08 I purchased for my son to use, when the bolt is slammed back
it sets off the roostering mechanism, bit of a worry, missed a follow up shot
at a nice stag. I think I might have to deepen the scalloped position where
SouthernIowa Hunter: i agree with not dry firing. i have only done it a couple times on
accident. i talk to a local gun store owner and he said it really does not
hurt them at all. he also said he had broke more firing pins actually
loading the bullets. caused by the firing pin not getting roostered back and
get sheared off was his explanation.
theoputdoorsmissouri: thanks for the comment.no i don't have that problem. but i could see how it
could happen if the bolt was worn.
Jerome Devince: Install bolt in regular manner. Of course it will not go in and lock with
out first reroostering firing pin After installing bolt , pull bolt back as
far as possible. point rifle barrel facing you left ,place on lap. with rag
and one or two thumbs push roostering pin till it is back in firing position
this is a lot easier tha trying to hold bolt free hand and locks in place
alot easier. I am not big on dry firing . but it needs to be done at least
once to make bolt fuctions properly
Rick Killian: I have the savage axis 30-06 camo version. I think it's a great rifle but,
The first time I took it to the range I had the cross hairs on the bullseye
and I was shootin toward the bottom right. The scope it came with was just
basically mounted any old way. I took it back to Cabelas where I bought it
and they bore sighted it for me for free. Its great now My advice is if you
by this rifle, Have them bore sight it before you pick it up
theoputdoorsmissouri: im sorry to hear that was it a brand new or used gun?
Joe Preciado: It looks great not old or abused, the research I did is what tells me bout
poor gunsmithing, cause there are alot of people complaining bout that knob
popping out of place on several rifles, so no more savage for me. Thanx bud
theoputdoorsmissouri: Thanks for the comment!! Press the button and the trigger at the same time
and pull the boat out
nikmc684: is the back screw knob(first thing you unscrew) locktited? mine wont
budget. great vid
Hamish M.: I pulled mine apart, and there is only one spring and no washer behind the
roostering piece. Do you have problems with rifle un-roostering if you slam the
bolt back? Yours might be a newer design to fix this problem...,
theoputdoorsmissouri: Yes.very important i had to tap mine with a plastic reloading hammer to get
it to budge.Thanks for the comment.
