I'm after a new .308. I'm a big fan of varmint rifles and heavy barrels. After pulling the plug on a Ruger VT order because the importer can't get a delivery time out of Ruger I've decided on a S/H Sako 75 Varmint.
Haven't found one yet but I have run into a 75 Deluxe. It is apparently mint (less than 50 shots fired), unthreaded and the asking price is £900/1000 depending on haggling, with optilock mounts. I haven't seen it in the flesh yet and it will be a bit of a trek to do so, so befor I do does this sound good and how might a heavy varminter addict get on with it? I'm assuming this is a Hunter but with nicer woodwork. Will it be a medium or lightweight barrel? I ask because I really don't want lightweight. Been there done that and didn't like it.
