    After market stock

    I was just wondering if any of you fellas over there know of a timber stock or chassis that will bolt straight to a sako roughtech range 7mag the one they come out with I find is to pliable when using a bipod the stock will push up and touch the bottom of the barrel I've glassed it and machined 3/16'' out of the barrel channel and this doesn't fix the problem so even if I have to go with a pistol grip but would prefer to stay with a conventional stock or tactical one weight is no problem cheers

    That's surprising. I've found the Sako and Tikka factory stocks to be good in that regards.

    Yes dogmatix I was led to believe that too I had a plastic stock on a sako 25-06 had no problems I have a laminated stock on a 22-250 and after several months the clear epoxy on the stock started peeling off after 6yrs it's almost all peeled off now this stock on the roughtech well i'll have to put up with it till I find an alternative stock i have owned sako all my life and found them good but since they changed hands I find quality assurance is slipping especially with stocks I think from here on in i'll build my rifles rather than pay a premium price for something that has to have work done on it

    The roughtech series should come with a bell & carlson style graphite/aramid/kevlar type stock with a full length aluminium skeleton/bedding block. Very very stiff.
    Is that the stock you have on it? I cant imagine an actual roughtech stock being pliable.

    No mine doesn't have a bell & Carlson the bell & Carlson is on the roughtech pro but my roughtech range doesn't the bell & Carlson has a cheek rest mine doesn't I have contacted the gun shop where I bought it and they inform me only the ''pro'' comes with the B & C stock. my stock is solid to 1'' past the tang then it's soft I have spoken to a target shooter and he says drill from front to tang along the length of the stock or just past the tang and insert rods and epoxy them in place maybe it will work but if it don't my stock will be buggered I suppose there's no loss there then thought At the end of the day I thought it would be easier to just change stocks but am finding it fairly hard without having to strip the gun and send it away to match the stock just a timber stock will do nothing fancy can't even get info on whether a tikka stock will fit or mod 85 sako , sako won't answer so i'll plod on i'll find something thanks

    You may wish to do some more research into what you actually have. Both the roughtech models are Sako A7 actions - no other a Tikka or SAKO stock is compatible with the A7.

    Both the Range and Pro come with a Sako stock that has a aluminium chassis like a B&C stock.

    If you have a Range it should have a heavy barrel - the factory thread is M18x1

    The Pro has a semi-heavy barrel - factory thread is M15x1

    Post a photo of your stock and it will be easy to tell if it is really a Roughtech stock.

    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.

    Sounds like a standard A7

    The "Roughtech" designation designates that it has the rigid aluminium skeleton B&C type stock.
    Both the Roughtech Pro and the Roughtech Range have a version of it -the range having a higher cheek piece & wider bench rest style fore end.
    If you don't have this stock then you don't have a Roughtech, and instead have a regular A7.

    Hit your retailer & Sako up for a replacement stock - a B&C with ali bedding blocks. If they sold you a “Roughtech” then you already paid for a decent stock

    Here is a Sako roughtech range factory stock for sale

    Just to confuse matters - Bell & Carlson also make a couple of stocks for the Sako A7 in LA and SA.

    Mine is definitely a roughtech range 26'' barrel fluted green stock 18-1'' thread the only thing is that the aluminium frame is broken between the tang and the for hand stock but it feels like there is nothing in there or maybe is it just a faulty stock? Yes that is my stock Kiwiinseatle

    If the ali bedding block is cracked or broken then they need to replace the stock free of charge

    There you go 1/4'' or better to nothing with bugger all pressure also just got off the phone with dealer and he informs me they are B&C type stocks he had no answers to why it was so soft also all screws were done up tight so with this when the bipod is on and touching th ground if left go half hour or so the barrel will be touching the stock from sag
