twin of my grandson's savage edge. which is,BTW,a very impressive shooter for the $. the trigger totally sucks. got a good local smith to fix it. now is GTG. the edge bedding/recoil lug system is for sure a t3 knockoff. the ruger bedding block looks sound. the price is good at this point. about the only off the shelf "hunting" gun i have seen that outshoots the edge is the t3. forget rem,win,brown,other rugers.
