    Mate has one and regards it highly.

    I can't get on with the stock - it feels short.

    He's a short arse of 5'6" and seems to fit him.

    The Ruger will have far less plastic on it than a Tikka, which to me is a big plus for it.

    The Hawkeyes have a new trigger on them which is supposedly an improvement on the old one, but will probably still need a visit to a good 'smith to get it in the Tikka/Sako catagory.

    I have an older M77 Mk2 and its been a very reliable honest working gun. I really like the mounts as they are bomb proof, and the stainless steel used is actually "stainless" unlike my stainless Howa which rusts fairly easily
