Now there's a deal

The higher grade Sako rifles have hinged floorplate magazines too. I would prefer a floorplate magazine to a detachable box magazine myself also on a sporting rifle, now a battle rifle that's another matter.

Never understood why anyone would want a magazine on a rifle, I load 3rounds in the rifle, ( brings me luck ) with two in my pocket, five deer is enough out of each group for me.

Haven't liked floorplates since one opened on me one night whilst out foxing.
I looked high and low for over a mile but never did find 3x.308 rounds. Never heard it open, never heard anything. Left me feeling very uneasy.
I guess the same could happen to a magazine but I like the ease of unloading. That little clip holding the floorplate will never be trusted again.
