Hi Guys,
Anyone had any experience with the new...ish Sako A7 roughtech pro?
I wondered if the stock is actually an H S precision or B&C or something Sako has produced?

The fore end looks a lot better than the standard A7

Anyone FL bedded one?

I've got one coming up that I have to bed. Haven't pulled it apart but under first inspection the barrel and action flop round in the stock like a cucumber up a hallway. Don't know the origin of the stock but seams ok

Hi Mark, there is another thread on here showing the internals.

Hard to get the fit right / stress free with this stock versus the lug set up. Can be best to mill the lug section out, then bed a floating lug in place. The lug can be short- say 12-15mm. That or adopt a rigid mount as per the accurizing book.

Cheers Chris, Id be interested to hear how you get on, I like that Cucumber up a hall way phrase!, reminds me of an old mates saying (referring to something quite different) "like waving a sausage in a cave"

Yes Warwick I have some pics of my A7 bedded, its in the original stock, I managed to crack the bedding at the knox during the roar, I was mulling over options, either rebedding the old stock or looking for a better replacement stock.

Thanks Nathan, it sounds like it may not be an ideal, solution... that's if I could even get one.
