it's a decent rifle with decent accuracy. what condition and price? what brand and size of scope is on it?

if it's in good condition, price is decent. not the deal of the century, but a decent price. 270 is a very good caliber too.

if it's an Edge, than it's the older version of the Axis. NIB for $300, then i think it's maybe even a better deal after all. i would definately buy it.

you get what you pay for. a friend of mine has an edge in .270 which i sighted in for him. it is not a bad gun. but not great either. put a decent scope on it and it will give you pretty good accuracy, that is if you can control the heavy trigger pull. overall its not bad i didnt care for the trigger or the overall feel of the gun. but after getting use too the trigger it was accurate.

for a little more money you can find a savage with the accutrigger, which is one of the best factory pulls i have found, or look in to ruger's new all american. it is very similar to the edge but with much better features. also more expensive tho.

A 85 dollar trigger from Rifle Basix will make the trigger first clas on the edge.- Go to EABCO and check out the SAV-1 trigger . I added one to may stevens 200 and had a nice 1 1/2 trigger.

people have used rifles for many, many years with heavy trigger pull weights and have gotten the job done with them. so is a lighter trigger necessary for accuracy? not always, but it can be a factor in that if you aren't use to shooting with one. my personal suggestion is and will always be, at least 2-3lb trigger pull weight for a hunting rifle and much less for a rifle used for target shooting.
