    It's bad enough that it has timber on it at all. About time Sako built another TRG-S type rifle. This is only half way there as it needs a nice carbon stock.

    I wonder haw that sad excuse for a recoil lug is going to hold up!
    The lack of scope mounting options for 34mm rings is also going to be a pain.

    The 85s lug is a vast improvement on the 75s imho

    10 twist is much more sensible for a 30 & 338 cal as it 9-9.25 for a 7mm instead of 9.5........Europeans....

    Bloody nice looking rifle all the same
