Has anyone else seen the new wood stocked Savage Axis II rifles that Walmart has been getting in recently? I checked one out today and it had a really nice walnut stock, in a monte carlo style stock with raised cheek piece and cut checkering instead of the typical machine pressed checkering. I was actually impressed with the fit and finish between metal and wood. It almost seems like a totally different rifle compared to the regular Axis and Axis II rifles with the synthetic stocks. Still, my mind just can't seem to justify $853 for an Axis, regardless of how nice the walnut looks.
