Savage Edge: New budget Rifle

    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.
