Ok I feel like such a dumb ass. For the past 3 years I've been searching GunBroker and GunsUSA patiently waiting to find a couple of Sako rifles.
 
If you go to Sako's website http://www.sako.fi/sako85.php they have a list of all these different rifles. I wanted just a plain old SS Synthetic or the Hunter Stainless. Guess what? Beretta doesn't import the SS or the Hunter Stainless in the USA. You would imagine they'd import the entire line up to the richest country in the world with roughly 30 million hunters.
 
Thumbs down to Beretta!!!! This is a stupid Importing Policy, also thumbs down to the president of Beretta USA. The Sako A7 SS synthetic is a pure piece of junk. The stock feels like its is made of hard plastic and the clip is made of hard plastic.
 
Thanks to David Morris over at Tecomate they got a patent and put a Bell and Carlson stock on the A7, which is now the Tecomate A7.
 
Do any of you guys know how I could possibly get an 85 SS from another country?

I agree with you, FWIW the closest thing on gunbroker.com is the Sako Grey Wolf.

Same thing with Tikkas, more models and options in Canada and Europe. I've tried since the beginning of the year but no luck with the dealers.

i've stood my a7 next to my son's t3 and the biggest difference i can see is the length of the barrel.  i like the clip safety on the a7 better.

the tecomate is a 50$ stock upgrade and a fluted barrel for 500$ more?  not worth it imho.

as has been said already, the greywolf is probably the closest you're going to get... also, don't rule out the 75's as they can be found ANIB all over as well.
