Thread: 7mm 08 availability

    7mm 08 availability

    Hi gents ,
    my fac will hopefully be here in the next few weeks I've applied for 7 mm 08 does anybody know where I can pick up a tikka off the shelf in this calibre?? It's as if I'm asking for something really exotic ! Gmk said they would have to order it in and it's a 4 -6 months wait! Which is ridiculous,
    many thanks , jim

    When I ordered my 7-08 Steyr Mannlicher, it took 6mths. Sako quoted 9mths to a year. But they do turn up second hand.

    Just looked on gun trader, only 3 bolt action rifles in that cal on there. Not tikka though.

    It took me a while to find a stainless M595 in 7-08 and Im glad I did. Superb rifle and brilliantly accurate

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    Shame that there are not more available off the shelf as it is a calibre which seems to be slowly increasing in popularity and I think it is a fantastic calibre for all uk deer. To be fair there is often a significant wait for some of the more common calibres depending upon supply chain issues. Keep looking and keep the faith, it will be worth the wait.

    Thanks for the replies gents I'm ideally looking for a m 595 in good nick I'm fine buying a second hand rifle it just seems they're like hens teeth , I struggle to see how rarely they come up as I know 5 people who have a 7mm 08 so it can't be all that rare! It seems patience is in order!

    Yep don't rush into buying a rifle that isn't exactly what you want as its a right pain to change.

    I spoke to GMK earlier this year and they were considering bringing in the 7mm-08 in the Sako 85. You'll probably find it hard to find a second hand one simply because we don't let go of them!

    I believe you may have some luck with the Kimber 84M in 7mm-08, almost definitely my next rifle. Seen them, handled them, taken them apart, very nice rifle and seem well made. Importer and gunshop is Riflecraft.

    ​Persevere you won't regret it.
