    Do yourself a favour and keep it, those 75's are excellent rifles and can certainly cope with weather and use. I think if you sell this one you will regret it, don't forget every rifle ever made was once new and minty, but I bet there are a good number of members of this site who have rifles that have seen a lot of use, but are still in first class condition because they have been looked after by their owners.
    The ORDNANCE QF 18 pounder Field Gun......I wonder if they will let me have one of these on an open ticket

    Mate - have you thought of just buying a synthetic stock for it and keeping the wood for fancy dress?
    Sako 75 synthetic stocks are under a hundred quid.
    I never make the same mistake twice.

    I make it five or six times.

    Just to be sure.

    Put a wanted ad on here. I bought mine for 95 from one of our members and it is like brand new.

    And I've got a spare wooden one if you knacker the current one....
    Those who can, do it. Those who can't, teach it.

    I'll bare it in mind Richard, but I think I'll let it go, if not it'll just live in the cabinet where it seems to have spent most of it's life

    I simply don't understand this.

    I managed to get a near mint 75 in .243 last year. Superb rifle. Pretty to look at and a pleasure to use.

    I was initially a bit precious about taking it out in grotty conditions - but then enjoyed using it so much, I stopped worrying. It's been out at least twice a week for the last 4 months, and almost as frequently before that. It certainly doesn't look quite so pristine now - but all the wear I've put there in the course of using it to do what it's designed to do. To me, it adds character to it and makes it 'mine'. I certainly never intend to get rid of it.

    Keep it and use it. The only reason to worry about the wear is if you intend to sell it - and there's no good reason to sell unless you're worrying about spoiling it!
