Bought myself a second hand Sako Finnfire to accomany my 10/22 for bunnies etc. Bought it over the phone from a gunshop miles away, after about three calls discussing condition etc we greed a price (after a bit of haggling of course). I was a little disgruntled that they wouldn't meet me half way with the postage costs (£20 - you can but ask).
Anyway, picked it up from one of my locl RFDs on the weekend and here it is:
When i picked it up i realised why the chap wouldn't budge on the postage costs as he had sent it in one of these, which i hadn't realised was in the cost:
To say i was a little surprised was an understatement....turns out it was a bloody good bargain in the end, the postage costs that is!
Took it down the indoor range last night to zero it. Fired four different types/brands through it, the results can be seen:
All the groups were shot from a bench rest thing, and were all six shot groups (note they were all different aiming points, but that there was little difference in poi from the original zero, with the exception of the CB longs which had about an inch and a half drop compared to the other three). Its clear there is a winner, the eley subs. Note all shot at 25m.
Its interesting to see how different brands work in your rifle. The results from the Finnfire are differnt from my 10/22. I can get the same group size from the RWS in my ruger as i do from the eley in the Finnfire, and the group size of the eley in the ruger is the same as that from the RWS through the Finnfire.
The final grouping, 10 shots at 25m, 20p for scale:
Could prove deadly on the bunnies!
Well pleased with it, especially as it was in "as described" condition, and came well protected! It makes doing business over the phone a pleasure and keeps faith in the UK gun trade!
