Weaver is proud to announce the addition of their new Multi-Slot Scope bases for the Savage Axis series of rifles. When it comes to budget hunting rifles, few names are as popular as The Savage Axis’ and few names can rival that of Weaver’s when it comes to quality American-made optics accessories. These new multi-slot scope bases allow the user to mount a wider variety of optics on their Savage Axis rifle and have been specifically engineered and constructed to fit the newer models of the Axis which feature a different pattern receiver.
New Weaver Multi-Slot Scope Bases Announced for Savage Axis Rifles
The new multi-slot bases are made from lightweight yet tough aluminum and will accept all Weaver top mount rings as well as Picatinny style rings so that you can mount everything from traditional scopes all the way out to modern red dots and IR or visible laser devices for nighttime hunts. These new one-piece multi-slot bases also allow you to move your rings forward and backward on the rifle to allow for a better range of eye relief to accommodate for the different sizes and lengths of pull that shooters have. Each of these new scope bases will be sold for an MSRP of $17.45 from the Weaver website and are available for order and in stock at the time of writing.
“New models for the Savage Axis include a standard 0 MOA multi-slot base with 8-40 screws, a 0 MOA extended multi-slot base with 8-40 screws and a 20 MOA extended multi-slot base with 8-40 screws.
The latest offerings from Weaver were specifically developed to be compatible with the Savage Axis rifles that feature the new receiver which requires a larger 8-40 screw,” said Monte Koenigs, product manager for Weaver. “These rifles are quite popular and now consumers have even more mounting options including a 20 MOA base that is canted down to allow for more elevation adjustments at extended ranges. Each scope base is made in the USA and makes for a great match for any Savage Axis rifle.”
