Savage Edge
 
Hey folks, new guy here to this forum. I noticed Savage came out with a new rifle. I been looking for another rifle and not wanting to spend a fortune. Anybody handle or look at one, fire one? Worth the $259 Cabelas is selling them for right now?

Thanks,

Don't own one but read a lot of rave reviews. It is supposed to be among the best choice at its price range.

i would try and buy it, it looks very nice and the specs look impressing so i'd go for it

they do have it at cabelas but its the camo one with a scope so its more, but look around other places would have them

Hey thanks, I just talked with my local gun shop, I have bought a few guns from them in the past. He stated he has sold a couple already and his customers said they liked the gun. He ordered me one, just the plain black one in 270 win. If anybody is interested I will shoot it asap and will let know how it does.

Oh, also, how is Savage on customer service? been years since I had one and never needed to use customer service.

Sorry, one more question. What scope bases will fit on this rifle? I looked on Midwayusa and couldn't find much on the Edge.

sweet man, when you get it pics would be good, and a range report as welll :)

Alright, sorry no pics yet but will. I found some bases, same ones fit it that fit my 110 and mounted a Bushnell 4200 Elite 3-9x40. I took it out today. put a few rounds through it and started to sight in the scope. Shot MOA, for sure, once sighted in I was putting holes right next to holes if I did my part. I'm very impressed, little stiff on recoil for a 270, however, the rifle is pretty light, the recoil pad did do it's job, a stiffer pad and that might have been unpleasant. The bolt is very smooth for a 300 dollar rifle, the trigger is a little heavy but no creep at all and broke very crisp, I will not mess with it, good enough for a hunting gun.
