A scope is an optical device that is attached to a firearm in order to assist the user with aiming. The most common type of scope is a telescopic sight, which uses a system of lenses to magnify the image of the target and make it appear closer. Scopes can be very helpful in improving the accuracy of a shot, especially at long range.
There are a few different reasons why it is important to mount a scope on a Savage Axis rifle. First, a scope can help the user to see the target more clearly, which is especially important at long range. Second, a scope can help to improve the accuracy of the shot by providing a more precise aiming point. Finally, a scope can also help to protect the user’s eyes from the bright muzzle flash of the rifle.

Let’s Discuss Step by step
1. Mount the scope on the Savage Axis.
First, remove the bolt from the rifle and set it aside in a safe place. Next, use a gunsmith’s screwdriver to remove the two screws that secure the factory scope bases to the receiver.

Start by attaching the scope to the bases using the provided screws. Then, insert the bolt into the receiver and tighten it down.That’s it!

2. Align the scope with the bore of the rifle.
If the scope is not mounted level with the bore of the rifle, the point of impact will be off. To ensure accuracy, it is important to align the scope with the bore. This can be done by using a bubble level or by sighting down the length of the barrel. Once the scope is level, it can be secured in place with rings or clamps.

To adjust the eye relief, first loosen the screws that hold the scope in place. Then, move the scope forward or backward until you have the desired amount of eye relief. Finally, retighten the screws to secure the scope in place.
