Well, the Edge does not cost $4,000; its MSRP is $320 or so, but then on the other hand I wasn't invited to Chelsea Clinton's wedding, and I have to get over that, too. Whatever. The Edge is Savage's new econo-rifle. It comes in long and short versions from .223 to .30/06, and employs a new, simplified action to hold down costs. The stock is molded, a nice clean job with no mold lines and a very good fit around the metal. It has a recoil pad that actually soaks up recoil, and feeds from a detachable box magazine that works fine.
