Savage has just introduced a new budget entry-level hunting rifle called the Savage Edge. The action is a brand new design and not based on Savage’s other entry rifle, the Stevens 200.
This rifle seems like a bargain. It’s MRSP is over $100 less than the Stevens 200! It features a detachable box magazine, something rarely seen in budget centerfire bolt action rifles.
The rifle will be available chambered in .223 Rem, .22-250 Rem, .243 Win, 7mm-08 Rem, .308 Win, 25-06 Rem, .270 Win, 30-06 Springfield. The specs below are for the .308 Win. model.
|Twist||1 in 10″|
|MSRP (Price)||$329 (standard model), $379 (XP Model), $379 (Camo Model), $424 (Camo XP Model)|
I suspect this is going to be a big seller. The big question is how well does it shoot?
