Need to get a decision made on a used...as new...SAKO 75 Laminate Stainless Varmint (Bull) 22-250 or a new Cooper Montana Varminter 22-250. I can pick up the SAKO for like $950 and the Cooper is $1599. Would love some input. Will be hunting PD's and coyotes out here...Montana. If you had $1400 to spend right now, which one would you buy and why? Obviously I need to scratch up another couple hundred for the Cooper. Will need to put optics on in the future with the Cooper as it will eat up all of the funds. Thanks...

Th Sako will be evry bit as accurate. It has my favorite feature, a removable magazine. Should have set trigger and optilock rings too.

I hate to say it but a Sako varmint was the most accurate factory gun I've ever had

Well, I bit the bullet on the SAKO. Paid too much for it I'm sure but you'd never know it was fired and it came with the Opti-Lock rings and bases...does not have the set trigger though. Very nice gun and the store guaranteed that it would shoot or I can bring it back. Paid $1199 for it...I know...too much but you only live once! Will post a picture shortly.

I think you made the right decision...
I've heard that the new Sako 85's are lacking in quality,, but that was hearsay. I've shot a couple of 75's and know they were both very good shooters..

Congrats...
Charlie

Thanks for the confirmation. I see Clearwater County in your signature...is that around Orofino? I spent last week fishing for B run steelhead over there. Go over every year for the last 4...love that area.

I'm about 20mi down river from Orifino,,, or 3mi below the Lenore Bridge for a reference point.
This should look familiar.. (Not the gun,,, the river.)




Shoot me a PM before ya come over next year,, maybe you'll have time to stop by for a cold beverage.. We can set on that deck and swap a few lies..

Oh yea,,, you might as well drop that Sako off with me while your here,, I can test drive it while you're fishing.. grin
