My friend and I were at the gun show in allentown yesterday. This will be his first year hunting so he wanted to buy a deer rifle. But he and I both have very limited budgets. We came across a brand new savage edge xp chambered in 30.06. He liked the looks of it and liked the way it shouldered. Then he saw the price tag and asked me is this a junk gun or what? He couldn't belive how cheap it was. I told him from the view reviews i read its a great out of the box shooter and a great priced entery level gun. So after some wheelin and dealin he got it for $300 including the scope, a sling, a soft rifle case, and a box of remme core loks. Sounded like a sweet deal to me. We left the show and went right to the range. First shot 50 yards 5"low left to right was dead on. After a little tweaking and only about 15 rounds he left with a big smile on his face with a 100 yard 3 shot group all touching eachother. Seems like a really nice gun for the money. Anyone else have one of these? How does everyone else like it?
