Savage edge/axis action question

Have any of you guys worked on these actions yet? What potential issues have you seen in them?

The only good part is that you can swap barrels so long as you stay with the rounds based on the same bolt head.

The bad is that there are no good aftermarket triggers (I don't count the RB Sav-1 a good trigger). There are no aftermarket stocks. There are no boltheads available for purchase to swap. Magnums are not available. The recoil lug is a joke.

Spend about the same money on a Stevens 200 and you have tons of options available to customize your rifle.

Thanks! I figured they'd have changed the screw placement.
