Good evening all. I've decided I need a Mannlicher and have been shopping online for a while. I like the A series and L579 actions more than the current Bavarian Carbine. Very tempted to take one of the .243s on GI but I think I'd rather hold out for a 6.5x55, 7x57 or 8x57. How long do I have to wait? In the last 60 days I've seen one 6.5 advertised and it looked rough. No 7 or 8mm. Did Sako not produce many in those calibers? I have a few Sakos because that's what I prefer to hunt with, but I'm not a collector and not very knowledgeable about Mannlichers. If its going to be a difficult find then I'll reconsider the .243.
