    Visiting my daughter in Iowa and have been chewing on this Sako at Cabellas. Mostly I like the blonde wood- Please talk me out of this rifle. Any Thoughts or random musings?

    David,

    Looks to be a clean rifle.......but the rifle pad is trashed/hardened.

    Yes- guess the beauty of the stock made me overlook that; I understand those are not so easy to replace.

    That Cabela's is near where I live, about a 40 minute drive. They overprice everything & the guys working there no very little about Sakos. Based on what I've seen Deluxes in NIB condition go for at some local auctions in the last couple years, I'd say they are about $300-$400 high. But that's just me. Not a lot of Sakos come up for sale in this area & they don't seem to draw a lot of buyers. You are correct about those pads being a huge PIA to get off & replace.

    I appreciate that; true the guys there knew very little about every firearm there- the advantage is they could ship it to my home state but I'll probably pass on it.

    Seems pricey to me, especially for a .243 which is a caliber that supply exceeds demand. Wood doesn't do anything for me - nice color if you like light wood, but very little figure. I'd give it a miss; I think you can get a better Deluxe for less money.
