I was at the range today zeroing a new scope for a pronghorn hunt.  I was shooting off a Harris bipod.

Here's what happened to the stock of my Sako A7 at the front stud.  The bipod was only finger tight.

I called Beretta Warranty @ 301.283.2191.  I spoke to Tom.  He said that since my rifle was one year out of warranty they wouldn't replace it… BUT I could send it in to their gunsmith and they MIGHT give me 25% off the same piece of sh*t stock.  

Beretta can kiss my ass.  I just thought folks would appreciate the intel before purchasing one of their products.

Disclaimer: I also own a Sako 85 Hunter in 375 H&H.  So far, their safari stuff hasn't let me down one bit.

Well I guess that explains why most people say to throw away those sako and tikka stocks as soon as you get the rifle.  That sucks bro.

I'm a Sako fan, but I've never liked any of the synthetic stocks they've ever supplied with any of their rifles.

REMF  dont feel bad I did the same thing on a Rem 700 PSS police sniper rifle and it was only a .308 It now has a McMillan stock on it.  I just wish I could afford a half dozen of them.

I really do, but that is a longer flight than a pronghorn hunt.

I even have a rifle set up for the pronghorn, not one for a sable (though I have a few that'll work for sable.)

Truth be told, when I go back, at the top of my list will be giraffe and crocodile.  I'd kill a hippo too.

And a 62" kudu, if I happened upon one.

And a black wildebeest.

And a dyhker.

And a reedbuck.

And a warthog, a nasty warthog.

Dammit, I gotta go back to Africa!

replace it with the new roughtech stock they are putting on the A7 big game. One of my favorite things I've ever touched!
