Savage has been using the Accu-trigger and accu-stock as selling points for the rifles and only the top end rifles have it standard. THey will happily install an accutrigger in any older rifles for over $200.00. Then, once you have the accu-trigger and discover it WILL NOT go to any lighter than you received it. If you want your accu-trigger to perform, it is necessary to send it back for a $65.00 trigger job plus $20 for S&H. That's how "good" it is.
I had bought a non accutrigger 9317R for almost 275. plus tax. It was all right , but was never really impressed by the rifle. It was traded.
Six months later I bought a 93R17 FVXP, with scope, accutrigger and heavy fluted barrel for $249. plus tax.
I had bought the first, under the impression all Savage rifles have accutrigger. NOT TRUE.
My remington 700 with the Walker trigger system is a better trigger, out of the box, than the accutrigger. It is a sales ploy and a gimmick. It is adjustable from probably 3.5-8 or 9 lbs. trigger pull.
Good rifles, very questionable advertising, that to me, is misleading.
None of the low end Axis or Edge are equipped with the accutrigger...
