Default Savage Axis vs. Savage Model 10

I'm looking at getting a 243 caliber in either the axis or model 10. I realize the axis doesn't have the accutrigger. Anyone out there have either of these and is the accutrigger really worth it in your opinion? I haven't shot either just wondering what you guys think.

The 10 will be a little better in all respects. Accuracy, trigger, barrel, stock, everything will be better. I really really like the accutrigger but some people don't. My old savage would make a clover leaf group easily.

I own a 10 and just got an axis 25-06. I like the feel of the axis,, necked down stock and shapely forend. Both are very accurate

I'm not a savage fan. But is there even ANY comparison?

Love my model 14. Really when it gets down to it if I could afford the jump up I would do it but from what I have read from the "experts (feild and stream and such places)" the axis is one of the best rifles for the money.
Again I haven't shot an axis and I love my 14 (which I bought used and still shoots better than me.)

The axis replaced the stevens 200line, but it isnt an old 110 anything. Its kind of like a really good shooting 770 compared to a 700. There isnt much comparison other than the mfr.

I have/had the axis in 223. I could shoot 1/2" groups with cheap ammo. Its a descent gun for the price. The only reason i bought it was for the action. It’s now a 300 blackout. The trigger is not the best...

If there’s not much of a price difference between the axis and the 10 i would go with the 10

I'm having trouble finding a 10 model. I did see one thru Gander Mountain on their used gun list priced at $400 for a synthetic. This was gun only. The Axis runs $280 new for the synthetic as bare gun at Academy.

Anyone know what the Savage 10 model runs new?

I hear mixed opinions on the accutrigger. Anyone have any ballistics comparison on the standard vs. accutrigger to validate the accuracy difference?
