    Oh I see, removable bolt handle .... when I saw the vidoe playing it showed a highlight of the bolt head as they talked about removable bits.

    Looking at the magazines, they have that familiar Tikka look. One action size fits all, so guessing there is only one action length / size. What say you @ChrisW ?

    Yes correct. Its sort of like an A7, a TRG and a Tikka had a baby. Correct one action length. The mags are double stack, single feed. You can get 10 rounders in standard cals, and I think 7 or 8 rounders for magnum calibers.

    What the stock/chassis reminds me of is the Accuracy International "green meanie", in that its a full aluminium skeleton with slabs on it for ergonomics.

    I had a chance to measure the S20' s magazine. The short action caliber magazine (308 etc) looks like it will allow for somewhere around 76-77mm COAL.
    We don't currently have a magnum version here for me to measure, but the external measurement of the magazine is about 100mm, so an educated guess would give the long action cartridges a potential COAL of somewhere around 95mm.

    RRPs are as follows;
    S20 Hunter, Blued, single stage trigger - $2,999
    S20 Hunter, Stainless Cerakoted, single stage trigger - $3,249
    S20 Hunter, Blued, two-stage trigger - $3,149
    S20 Hunter, Cerakoted, two-stage trigger - $3,399
    S20 Precision, Blued, single stage trigger - $3,499
    S20 Precision, Stainless Cerakoted, single stage trigger - $3,749
    S20 Precision, Blued, two-stage trigger - $3,649
    S20 Precision, Stainless Cerakoted, two-stage trigger - $3,899

    Splutter, come-on mate, this is the interwebs...

    All these sub-half moa groups are 3 shots MAX, and mysteriously have a habit of not being shot on demand and in public

    I shot the group I posted while rushing to sight in a couple rifles last minute before a training day. It was literally the only group I ever shot with the S20 (and still is). Prior to that group, the rifle had only fired a few single rounds (followed by scope adjustments), then shot that group when close to zero before final adjustment. It was the first group through a brand new rifle. I can understand people would think it would be cherry picked. Fully understandable. I just thought that it was pretty impressive, given that it was my only try at a group, from a brand new rifle, and with factory ammo. But hey, maybe the stars aligned
    Working to put together a public day (possibly next month, in AKL) where people can come and test for themselves.

    Not a Sako fan or even a crank bolt fan but I like the concept and if it isint too pricey it would make a nice addition to the cabinet. One in 6.5 or 30 PRC would be tempting.

    Might get banned because of the scary removable pistol grip and butt.

    I don’t think they are overpriced. They just appear expensive compared to the cheap shit on the market.
