I bought a Savage Edge (they later changed the name to Axis) in .223 back in January. I haven't shot it yet so I can't really comment too much about it. Dry firing it the trigger was really heavy. Since Midway had a Timney trigger for it on sale last month I went ahead and, uh, pulled that trigger. The barrel free floats, but the stock seems not near as stiff as I would like. Don't know if a replacement 110 stock will fit it or not.
It was $259 at Academy. So even with the $85 trigger group I expect the fun factor to way exceed the cost.
