Everywhere I go I'm hearing about how accurate Savage's are. Multiple articles in magazines, online etc. Shops I go to say they are selling a lot of Savage's. 

WHICH SAVAGE??

I mean they only make a few dozen rifles form what I can tell on their website!!

Is it the EDGE???

I think the edge is there budget rifle and comes in a package deal most of the time...probably not there best piece...but haven't heard any negatives about it, no acutrigger on this one.
Don't own a Savage yet...but will most likely be my next purchase...the 10 FP seems to be very popular here and at Snipers Hide.
Give it a little while and people will chime in I'm sure.

Bboy.... every savage I have ever owned has been accurate! I currently have a 116 weather warrior in 300 wsm that will do 1" groups at 100 yards, and an old 110 in 30-06 that will do 5/8" groups pretty regular with remington core lokt 150's!

 The Edge is a budget minded starter that personally I would leave in the store and buy a Stevens 200 for the same price give or take a few bucks.
 All models of the Savage are accurate but the model 10LE and the model 12 vlp or bvss are the ones I own and they do perform extremely well for factory guns. I have seven in various calibers and they are all sub moa, these are "varmint contour or bull barrels", and 2 model 11 for hunting that are always right around 7/8 of an inch @100 with sporter barrels.

Savages are super accurate with the right ammo and the shooter...well, that's a MUST.
 
My .22 Savage groups 1/4"-1/2" at 50 yards with German Wolf Match and around an inch or under
at 100.
 
.204 will nail a rabbit at 400 yards and .308 carbine will blow a hole through a two-legged varmint at 600 (only tried on the paper though Wink)

I would suggest a model with the Accu-Trigger. The factory tupperware stock is not great. But the lammy stocks get pretty good reviews as well as the new Accu-stocks.

I have a rather large selection of Savages ranging from 10s (10, 11, 12, 14, 110, 111, 114) and 16s( 16 and 116), 22-250 to 338 Win Mag, that I have collected over many years and would agree that out of the box they are extremely accurate but it is also important that the shooter be just as good and works at it.   I started both my son and daughter on Savage  rifles in both .22 and then in 243.  I really like them and as a Left Hand shooter Savage has always been left hand friendly and most but not all are left hand models and several are no longer made.  Many of them are not the prettiest rifles you will ever see but they do get the job done where ever I have hunted including mainland Alaska and Kodiak Island which can really beat up a rifle and scope.  Definitely get an Accutrigger, you will not regret it.  The Edge is their entry level model and would move up for a few more dollars into their more advanced lines.  Good luck with your choice.

Savage has long been known to have "out of the box" accuracy. A lot of that can be attributed to the floating bolt face. It makes up for the things not being squared. I have only owned model 10's of different configurations and they all shot well. I had a base model 10 in 243 that shot great with a thin barrel and I have a Savage FP-LE 308 win that shoots below 1/2 moa all the time. Well if I don't mess up. For the money I don't think you can go wrong with one.

Is the action on the Edge a regular Savage action? I want to try my hand at building one and and of coarse don't want to spend ant more than necessary for an action.

 The Edge really is not builder friendly, there just are not any parts out there to do it.
 If you want to do a build buy the Stevens for about $25-30 more and use all the Savage parts you want or the after market that are availiable for the Savages.

The first rifle I bought for myself when I was 15 years old was a Savage in 270 Winchester. Since then I've owned 5 or 6 more....every single one shot great. Never really looked at the Edge but if its a Savage, bet it shoots good. I would go with the model 11 with open sights if it were me. Can get em used for a song.

At the end of last season I won a Savage Model 11 FCNS in 300 WSM.  Since I had no money in the rifle I sent it to W.E. Birdsong & Associates (www.black-t.com) and had it coated.  Then took it to my gunsmith and had the trigger tuned to 3>0 lbs and mounted a Nikon 3-12x43 Monarch scope.  My buddies and I took it to the range and did my usual barrel break in and was putting bullets in the same hole at 50 yards.  Took it out 2 weeks ago to sight in at 100 yards 3 shots at 100 yards with 2 touching and we are off to see what the season brings.  I have only owned Browning rifles in the past but I believe this is going to be a great shooter.  This model is the short action version with accutrigger and accustock.  These two features are important to the accuracy of the gun I do believe.
