    I have been looking for a stainless shorter barreled rifle for riding in the truck, coyote hunting etc.. My dad called me friday when i was on my weekly drive delivering pumps saying he found a stainless sako A7 in 25-06, and it was in my price range. The guy had duracoated the stock green but had never shot it. It was on consignment for $600. So I called and asked them to hold it I would be there the next morning to buy it.... Went to go pick it up and sure enough it appeared to be un fired. so I bought it. After some research it turns out they take browning a bolt bases. So I threw on a set of durasight 1 piece rings that I had sitting about on it just so I could start break in and some load development. It seems to shoot really well so far. The rings are way too high so I am going to put some low Talleys on it. But here is a pic I snapped of it on the cleaning bench

    I am very gun poor! I am gonna try 110 accubonds in it. I have a shop where we sell/repair several different types of pumps and valves but my main customer who I deliver pumps for is using Kimray Glycol pumps, Chemical Injection pumps and a few Graco Diaphragm pumps. What do you do?

    Shoot, i'm just a lowlife safety guy.... we build, Install & service all sorts of pumps in our various services.... Rod pumps, PC (progressive cavity) pumps, Tri-plex, quinta-plex. HPS (horizontal pumping systems) Gas lift, plunger lift etc. Used to do ESP (electronic submersible) however we sold 67% of that PL to the russians....

    Anywho, keep us updated on the new toy... I wanna see what a 110 accu-bomb will do to a coyote!

    I used to shoot the accubond out of another 25-06 and it performed very well on coyotes. but ill be sure and get another one once I get it up and going and take some pictures.
