It will be at your favorite gunshop well before hunting season. If you want it now you have to order the rifle. Buying from CDNN is no different than buying locally. Inspect the gun before you fill out the form 4473. If there is anything defective your FFL sends the gun back on CDNN's dime.
I just ordered a Savage Axis II XP. Locally all anyone had in stock is a regular Axis. I don't want a regular Axis. I want the Accu-Trigger and a decent scope for the same price as an Axis so I ordered the gun I wanted.
i just picked mine up from LGS, ordered through Davidson's Gun Gallery.
sweet deal, nice gun, trigger feels crisp, also got a muzzle brake and Vortex Diamondback HP scope for it.
can't wait to shoot it!
