    Hi Steve,

    Now I Know you said youíre looking for a Sako 75; but I just wondered if you might be interested in an 85. Itís not the 85 Hunter model which Iím selling, which quite frankly I donít rate at all, its not a patch on the older 75ís which I also have a collection of in my safe. But what I have is the 85 Bavarian (in a .243), which is quite frankly a very nice gun, and looks like it came out of a different factory to the new Hunter models; the quality is above and beyond. Anyway, hereís the link to the Sako website if youíre unfamiliar with the model:

    The gun Iím selling is threaded to M14x1 with a stainless steel thread cap and an un-used T8 Reflex sound Mod with a 'Bush Muffler' neoprene mod cover. I'm selling it with 30mm scope mounts without the scope, and the action has been partially bedded. It also has a very nice single set trigger.

    I've put 60 home loaded rounds through the rifle from new in total (without the sound mod on) and have developed a 70grain Nosler BT load that shoots ragged holes on the paper at 100m. I was very particular to shoot the rifle in when it was brand new, with a process of copper cleaning in between the first five rounds to break in the virgin barrel to prevent throat damage and increase barrel longevity.
    Anyway, the whole package cost me £1680 new, and i'm after £1350 ONO for it as it is. It still looks the same as when it came out of the box for the first time, with no marks whatsoever; itís as new.

    Photos are available; let me know if youíre interested,
