    Not sure , the fluted barrel looks nice but the nickel action looks cheap.

    I don't know. To me it just looks like the stock and scope aren't on speaking terms with the barrelled action.

    Not beating any kind of drum for Sauer, but I think this is a better look.

    Stock surface looks like a Remington SPS, how much is the blaser? The Remington SPS at least comes in proper stainless.... is Blaser part of VW?
