Pleasure Gary. With 18-months use under the belt, the one thing that annoys me is the 3-round magazine capacity. This is fine for stalking, but a few more would be nice for night time foxing. I still plan to add a .308 in due course and am harking after the new Sako 85 Synthetic Black. Compared to the 85, the A7 feels slimmer in the hands. Perhaps it would be worth a visit to a gun shop to try one in the hands to see how it fits? Indeed, doing that was what brought me to choose the A7 over the Tikka T3.
Hi Matt, happy new year, Since I got the Sako 591 .308 I appear to have caught the Sako bug. I would really like to put in for a 6.5x55 but I am not sure what the firearms officer would say as I already have a .308. So just trying to find out people's thoughts about the A7 in .243. Cheers, Gary
I know what you mean since getting a .243 sako 75 im looking for another sako 75 in .308 for stalking to replace my 7mm08. Have you been to a gun shop and handled a few rifles, the shooting shows coming up, good opportunity to handled a few rifles and see what suits you best.
I bought my A7 s/s in .270 a few months ago and love it. Was choosing between it a T3 or an 85. The A7 just felt much nicer than the T3 and I didn't feel the need to spend the extra money to go up to the 85. Its not fussy with ammunition either.
