    Would imagine this could be popular? One in .308 is certainly on my wish list for when fund permit.

    Will the matt black finish make it shoot better? Regards JCS

    Will the matt black finish stand out a little less than bulldogs proverbial's?

    What sort of finish is it?
    Manganese phosphate, like military rifle?
    Teflon, like a Sauer or SHR 970?
    Something like Mannox ( Steyr SBS ) or Tennifer ( Glock )?
    Vapor deposition, like the Remington 700 XCR?

    Stainless steel with some sort of black coating/finish would have been better for corrosion resistance.

    I have the Sako 2014 catalogue , it doesn't give details of what the finish actually is other than to say it has a matte black finish, the barrel and action aren't listed as being stainless steel either. ( the stainless synthetic version's barrel and action are listed as being stainless steel obviously )
