Re: Why not the Sako Quad?

Something else I forgot to mention about my Quad. Even with the Lilja barrel and scope it comes in at 7lbs 6oz. Still room for a bit more weight.

Re: Why not the Sako Quad?

Kevinbear, I have tried the high rings and I found that I prefer my head being close to the axis of the bore. I know as I get older my head will probably get higher and higher but for now the low rings work for me. I even have the Anschutz 3P rifle I use for indoor set up for a low head position. I ...

Re: Why not the Sako Quad?

Here are some targets that I shot at Turkey distance, 77 meters, using Geco (RWS) target ammo. All of the targets are 5 shot groups off of my porch picnic table. Should be good enough for the game. :-bd https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2941/15237607828_bf20f8919d.jpg https://farm6.staticflickr.com/559...

Re: Why not the Sako Quad?

I did not test the factory barrel. I ordered the Lilja barrel at the same time I ordered the rifle. It took 2 days to get the barrel from Lilja and 4 days for the rifle so I put the Lilja on, opened up the barrel channel and called it good. I have not bedded the action, I wanted to do some testing b...

Re: Why not the Sako Quad?

Well I finally figured it out. I went with the Sako Quad. I put a Lilja Sundberg Taper barrel and Leupold FX-III 25x Silhouette Scope on it, adjusted the trigger down to 2#s for a no creep very crisp trigger pull and I should be ready to go. The Anschutz is certainly a fine rifle but this one has re...

Wooster and Pharr Stock Weight

I was wondering if anyone could tell me the general finished weight of the Wooster and Pharr Stocks with bottom metal. Any information will be greatly appreciated!

What makes the Anschutz trigger so legendary?

I totally agree that Anschutz triggers are fantastic but what is it that makes them the choice for so many shooters? Is it consistency, adjustability, mechanics? If a trigger is consistent, adjusted to the correct weight, has no creep and breaks cleanly does it matter if it is an Anschutz or not? I ...

Re: Why not the Sako Quad?

Thank you all for the responses. I have been shooting on a single stage trigger but have tried the two stage triggers and found that I prefer the single stage. I definitely have some things to consider. I will have to try some of the Quads out for sure. If there is anyone else who would like to tell...

Why not the Sako Quad?

Hi everybody! I'm a relatively new silhouette shooter hoping to get some information about purchasing my first silhouette rifle. Here is a little bit of my silhouette shooting history and some questions I have regarding rifles. I started shooting silhouette for the first time in April at the Conard ...
