    If it were me i would go for the SAKO 85 It has an improved bolt system but to be fair they are both good rifles. But they wont compare to my sauer so i will stick with it

    sako 75 or 85


    Taking it you live in the Shropshire area so have you tried Morgans of Oswestry (ask for the gun room), last time I popped in they had a number of very competitevely priced 75 and 85's on offer along with some nice t3's.
    Another place in Shropshire is the bog at Minsterly or a little further a filed is the shop in Wensbury west mid or Valley arms at Ruthin across the border in North Wales.

    Hope these are a help

    The sauer is smooth and silent like me it is black like me , with a nice fluted barrel . It has the best mounting system on a rifle with a built in weaver rail. Deadly accurate out of the box has a set trigger leaving at a nice crisp 1lb . Its is a couple of pounds lighter than the sako, I paid 1100 from new with rings ready to shoot.
    Did i say you can take it apart and change barrels for other calibres .
    Al weather with a Teflon coat. Sorry no tiger stripes and you cant get camo so if your a serious stalker you need not apply

    Hi Shropshire lad,

    Morgans will order you what you want but hadn't got many cf rifles in last week when i called in. they ordered a ouple of Beneli's for my mate on a sale or return basis and they were in within a week he bought the one he wanted and they sent the other back.
    In contrast he went to the bog first and paid up front, waited 3 weeks to be told it would take up to another month. NB Cambers on the cressage road have a few rifles in and will order you anything you want. the owner is a keen stalker. Wynstay farmers in oswestry have just opened a new gunroom so might be good for a deal. Garlands at stafford have a fair bit of kit and is deffinately worth a phone call.

    hope this helps, Ezzy.

    I have the wood laminate in stainless with a Jet-Z mod, I recommend you pop into a local shop and pick one up to try. I was going for a T3 untill I picked up the 85, lifelong purchase so worth the extra.
