Sauer 202 is in the same class of rifle as the Blaser so you're kind of comparing a Chevy Blazer to a Mercedes cruiser class here... .

If you were talking about a full custom built on a 700 action or 700 clone you'd be talking about equals quality wise but if we're talking straight from the factory they are in different leagues.

Couldn't have said it any better...Which is why I haven't responded to it yet. But that is a great comparison.

Sauer makes excellent guns, but factory they are precion made rifles. A Remington 700 still needs work even after it leaves the factory, before it can be considered a precision piece of equipment.

I love Remington 700's. I have quite a few of them. But one day I hope to build off of a custom action.
