Actually, Bob Kleinguenther and Phil Koehne just imported the rifles from Voere in Voehrenbach Germany, accurized them in Seguin, TX and sold them under the Kleinguenther name until Voere sold to Mauser who later went bankrupt.

My dad bought 7 in the early 70's and they all shot 1/2" at 100yds with off the shelf Hornady Frontier 30-06 168g boat tails. (all but 2 which are new and unfired)

Phil later bought out his partner and rebranded as KDF and now sells Blaser which are very accurate switch barrel rifles albeit pricey compared to Savage or Remington Sendero.

From what I have owned..XR-100, Sendero and Tikka Varmint/Super. Aslo for rimfire my Finnfires shoot well. These two pics are from my Tikka 204 Ruger and 6.5 Swede..with less than 10 shots fired.

We take almost all the new guns sold in the shop. Both of us will attest that over all the Remington 700 has been the most accurate rifles out of the box with the Savage with the accu-trigger a close second. On occasion you will find one or two other makes individual rifles that will really shoot but over all the Remington 700 takes the top.
plus they like the big price mark up you get with a Remington to help fill their pockets. Face it they're a "used to be."

a Remington 40X is not a production rifle. All are built in their custom shop, and they still won't run with the big dogs

I've shot the Sako in 6PPC with the set trigger. Nice rifle with a fantastic trigger. A good solid mid three's gun. On the otherhand I've seen out of the box Savage 12BVSS rifles shoot in the mid twos (several). I saw a 6BR Savage shoot low two's and high ones on a regular basis last year
