Thread: Sauer 202. Sako A11 or Mannlicher

    Sauer 202. Sako A11 or Mannlicher

    Right think its time to trade in my .22-250 and get a .243. the rifle will be use as an occasional Fox,Deer and range rifle .

    I don't need help on caliber choice as i have made my mind up and have rifles chambered .17FB .260 and .308 so ths .243 fills the gap between .17 and .260.

    But i need views about the pros and cons the Sauer 202,Sako A11 and the mannlicher By owners or ex owners please !!

    Love my 202. its in 6.5x55 but I like the traditional looks al be it in synthetic and the stock still feels right. Not cheap and plastic. It weights a few oz more than others but I still prefer the feel of quality.

    I love my Sauer 202, lovely smooth action. The only disadvantage with owning a Sauer in the UK is having to deal with Garlands, the UK importer. It will put me off buying another one, ever.

    Sako more readily rebarreled with custom tube if need be than mannlicher although sauer easy to change to another factory barrel. I think border have some sort of adaptor that may help with rebarreling sauers. Some of the 243 Sauer have 4 lug bolts instead of the 6 lug bolts

    If the Sako model your looking for is as good as my A7 in .308 id go for the Sako
    Blessed be the sheeple for they shall inherit bugger all...

    My .308 is a Sako AII from the early '80s, and I find it a very good rifle. The trigger is delightful!

    I would forget the AII and go for a 75

    I have two 202s .243 and .308 both are excellent, would recommend them to anyone. Also I have no issue with Garlands (see post above), always found them really helpful.

    One day I want to be as wonderful as my dogs think i am .....
