I was thinking of getting a browing A-bolt stalker. but recently started looking at the sako synthetic stainless. because i read some good things about them.I was wondering witch one is better. the sako cost about $600 more. is the sako that much better. or not. and if so why? or why not? [>:]
Is it worth 600 more? Well, thats up to you. I have both, and definately prefer the Sako over the A-bolt. But I have an A-bolt that shoots awesome.
The sako has the features I want. Like the nice spring loaded extractor, bolt can be disassembled in the field, three bolt lug, very smooth construction, smooth barrel that shoots well Cold POI, nice stainless but very matte finish, intregrated base connects, great trigger, nice detachable mag. I just wish they would actually glass bed the rifles, or pillar bed. But other than that, it has everything I want.
The A-Bolt has also 3 bolt lug, not as smooth bolt action, pretty good trigger, I do not like the tang safety, never crazy over, the mag, but most I have had are an awesom gun. You can't disasseble the bolt very easily if at all however.
