You can adjust the trigger by cutting loops off the spring.  Do it one loop at a time until you get where you want it.  The come fairy heavy from the factory.

Thanks for that info. I just ordered the youth compact in 7mm/08 for my daughter.

I caved in and ordered the same gun same caliber for the oldest daughter. There are some unbelievable buys at cabelas right now, kinda makes me wonder if they are unloading everything to start converting over to bass pro  :bdid: ... hopefully not
Been wondering the same too.  My guess is they overbought earlier in the year, and probably have a bunch of inventory on the way for black Friday and Xmas.  They would need to unload a lot of this stuff to not compete with the future deals; or maybe this is kind of like a type of pre-black Friday bait...so people come back later looking for more deals.   :dunno:
With CNC, I can't imagine the actions and barrels costing all that much to produce anymore.

Plus im sure alot of it has to do with the out come of the 2016 elections, guns are not being bought up quite like they were a year ago, you look at the big companies and the earnings have been consistently down this past year.

Whoever missed the Savage axis sale, here is the Axis II with an Accutrigger, only 50 bucks more than the previous one. Still a solid deal

The youth compact in 223 or 7/08 is still available for $199.88 and has a $50 mail in rebate to bring it down to $150.

You can also buy $100 gift cards on eBay for $82 and some of the $20 off coupons work for firearms.

My order arrived at the store and then they canceled it and shipped them off somewhere else before I could go get it.   :o :o


They are going to try and track them down for me.  I won't hold my breath.  I spent an hour on the phone today trying to get this resolved.

I got an email from Cabelas last Saturday notifying me that the gun was in, but I was away elk hunting all week so I haven't been able to pick it up yet, but will tomorrow morning. Hopefully it actually is there! I haven't received any cancellation notices so I assume it's still there waiting for me. I already paid for it so it better be! Does anyone know if they charge for the background check?

No charge for the background check.

They didn't notify me that mine was canceled, I just saw it in my bank account.

I believe that my problem is likely an exception and not the rule, but honestly, I am not the happiest customer at the moment.  The person at the Lacy store who has been helping me, however, was very polite and helpful.  Who knows, perhaps my order problem will be resolved.  If it is, I will update.

No problem at all so far and I have bought more than I care to admit.  I buy with a credit card through Paypal, so I have a couple layers of protection.  The seller has stellar feedback and they are always shipped right away.

I'm thinking they buy them in bulk from Cabelas at a 20% discount and then sell them for an 18% discount or something similar.  They will only sell you three at a time, so they obviously don't want competition on eBay.

When you get 18% off and then use a coupon to buy something already on a great sale, it starts to get downright affordable.

I hope it works out for you. I'll post tomorrow after my visit to the Lacey Cabelas store. Hopefully I'll be returning home with a new rifle.

PastorJoel- according to the email I received from Cabelas I have 2 weeks to pick it up. Sounds like that wasn't the case in your situation?

They can't explain why it was canceled.  My best guess is that this order got confused with a different order that I made that I did cancel.  I made it very clear to them when I canceled the one that I was not canceling the other, but they are human and mistakes happen.

If they can't restore my order I am hoping that they will try to give me a break on something else.

Well I'm here at Cabelas now and they can't find the gun I ordered.  :bash:

I checked my bank account online and the money was not refunded to my credit card.

I'll update this when I know more. They're still looking.

Hmmm...  I hope that they are able to work it out for you.

Ask for Chuck (if he is there).  He was the one helping me.

No problems, got it and going home now. Just really made me wonder when she went in the back twice and then said she couldn't find it. Biggest hassle was waiting for the background check. Took about 45 minutes. But overall pretty painless. First time buying a gun from Cabelas and I'd do it again.

How are the triggers on those? I'm tempted to get one for my daughter. But I've never seen one, other than pictures.
Just my opinion, but the trigger sucks. Timney sells a trigger for it for about $125 that will adjust down to 1.5 lbs.
