I ordered three fix kit for my axis .223/ donor rifles after all three have either failed comlpetely or started to fail ejecting spent cases from the receiver. Not a huge deal unless you shoot, miss, then try to put another round in and you get jammed up, costing you some tasty back straps! I bought the fix kit and it ejects spent cases further than it ever did new on all three rifles! I would highly suggest if you have an axis rifle- get this fix kit before you need it! You will need it- many axis shooters have the problem- for $20+ shipping it's a super easy fix to make the "cheap rifle" just a touch nicer!

Put a shim behind the spring- super easy! Kinda like savage axis viagra! lol I also switched to s&b primers for the savages- never a problem yet (2500 primers or so now) every one goes off.

I don't want to change primers :|

What kind of shim, and how much? I have had only one Savage apart that far but it wasn't an Axis, and it was years ago.
