6 month wait? Seriously?

I have two 85's and love them... seriously good kit and worth the money ... but what are you ordering for a 6 month wait?

i ordered a 85 hunter but with a stainless barrel, if id gone for blue barrel i could have it as soon as i get my FAC back.
but befor i decided to get a sako i was looking at a t3, but again it was a 6 month wait for stainless and wood stock. not every ones choice i know.

I have a atec cmm4 on my 85 hunter , great mod which does not upset the balance , make sure to get a calibre specific mod , as ie a 30cal mod will work on a 223 , But imo you may as well not bother . Fantastic rifle its well worth the wait .

Have to say I like an 85... Got a couple, one in stainless laminate varmint .243, and an 85 hunter in 6.5 x 55mm.
Bot shoot very well...
I've got an atec on the swede, and the balance is spot on..
The Hunter 85 in Stainless would be worth in the wait... Patience is a virtue!! :cool:
