I guess if I just wanted a good deer rifle which one would you pick if you wanted to hunt with a Sako? I am not interested in collecting just using them and great accuracy. Cheers Jorge
Jorge, In my experience they are treasures. The fit and finish on the models prior to 1982 were superb and they consistently shoot sub MOA. The Finns demonstrated their craft by manufacturing the finest Mosin Nagants ever built......they carried that over post war to develop Olympic grade small bores and then transitioned to Sporters in nearly every caliber. Any .243 to 30-'06 would make a super deer rifle. Don't waste time on the new ones......they are inferior. I would pick a rifle made between 1962 and 1982. There was a short 4 year window, 1978-1982 that Stoeger imported them......these are beautiful rifles......then the evil empire crushed the legacy.....Berreta.
