Hi everyone,

As you can see this is my 1st post here. I have been lurking for many weeks & now I need some help!

I am getting ready to purchase a new hunting rifle in 30.06. I fell in love with the Sako 85 Finnlite, but it is a bit over my budget. I went & looked at the Tika T3 & I hated the hollow sounding slick feeling stock.

Then someone told me about the A7's & honestly, I think it is what I want & can afford. Here is my question. I am getting conflicting information about the stock on the A7.  I called Berretta & they told me that the A7 has a similar stock to the Sako 85. It is the "soft Touch" rubberized stock. But I then contacted a dealer that had one & he told me that the one he has is a hard NON-rubberized stock, very similar to the Tika T3. I have two questions:

1- Do they make more than one stock? a soft-touch & a T3 type stock?

2- For any owners of the A7, is the stock closer to the stock on the Sako 85 or the Tikka T3? Is the A7 stock more robust & tacky than the Tikka? Does it have that hollow sound to it?

I do not have any local shops that carry the rifle, so I am asking for the help of other on this forum that may be able to help me. I would hate to order the rifle & get it & have it have the Tikka stock & then not be able to return it.

Any information would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I put a BC medalist on my T3. I love the T3's (had two) but do not like the stocks. The BC turns it into another gun entirely!
