I am in one of those great dilemmas.
I am soon to be buying a 7mm Rem Mag and I have a few options available to me.
I have asked some friends what they would do, I am now overloaded with some great advice. Each of them has their real plus points, but then I am drawn to one or all of the other options too.
In the running are the following
1) Brand new Sauer 202 Classic XT. Factory threaded 650mm barrel. (25.59")
2) Absolutely mint Sako Finnbear, possibly 40 years old plus. But by all accounts in better condition than my 9 year old Tikka. 24" barrel, not threaded but would have this done immediately for a mod or muzzle break.
3) Remington 700 action from a 300 Win Mag, which would need a barrel and stock fitted to be a finished rifle.
4) Last but not least, a Blaser R93 Offroad, factory standard IE still has iron sights fitted and has a 24" barrel, so again will need to be threaded. This does come with Blaser mounts and a Swarovski Habicht fixed 8 power scope.
The price of these rifles are all affordable to me, I just need to weigh up the pros and cons for each of these.
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, decisions decisions.
I would be interested to hear other peoples views.
