I have a Sako 85 in 6.5 x 55, which I'm very happy with. I have a slot for a 7mm Rem Mag and was thinking about getting another 85.
I've spoken to my local dealer who has a GMK account. He looked on the computer for a 7mm RM. Apparently there are none at GMK's UK warehouse at the moment. I can order one through my dealer but because there are none in the UK it would be a "Special Order", the waiting time for which could be nine months. I have heard other dealers say the same thing.
I don't really want to wait nine months. I'd probably go down the custom route instead.
Does anyone have any experience of this. I wonder if my dealer is getting bad service from GMK or whether this is the norm. I don't want to go eslewhere but does anyone think I might get one quicker if I went to another shop.
