I am interested in purchasing a stainless Sako A7 in .243 cal, a quick look at UK prices seems to show a price of around £1170. I looked at a quick review on youtube of the rifle in an American gun store , the price was $930 about £620!! So the guns are shipped half way around the world and end up being massively cheaper than here in the UK, I very much doubt Sako would sell the rifles for a loss in America so how on earth can the vastly over inflated UK price be justified? I think I already know the answer to that question..... Because they know they can get away with it!
As is the case with most goods purchased in the UK - we almost always end up paying over the odds!
