    IMO the 75 is a better action than the 85. Don't know what a grey wolf is but my 243
    model 75 is a great shooter after changing the rubber stock it came with. Great price he
    is offering.

    Yes, in my opinion great price. But do you want that cartridge. I would not buy any gun regardless of price if I did not want or need a particular cartridge.

    I have a 75 in 7mm STW. It to has the synthetic, with rubber inlet. I am looking for another stock but haven't heard of many options. What are you shooting, and where did you get it? I am surprised it dosen't shoot better, but I KNOW the stock is the reason. Drop me a PM if you care, I would appreciate it. Thanks, 7STW.

    I had Lone Wolf build a carbon fiber stock back in 98. Took the gun from 1 1/2 to 7/16.
    With the new 87 Bergers I am putting a lot of them in 1 hole @ 300. Been shooting 1000
    with that bullet as well.

    Lone wolf has sold, but they are still local up here. http://www.lonewolfriflestocks.com/
    I think the buyer is one of the Google investors so it's a well backed company. Proof Research.

    Who knows why it is discounted so heavily but I have seen new Finnlight 85s discounted heavily as well. Sako has gotten pricey with fall of the dollar against the Euro.

    If that is a new rifle like you mentioned, that is an awesome deal. I had a 75 Hunter 7RM (wood stock) that I purchased new for around $800ish in '99. Sold it for way more when I thought I was done hunting and still think I made a mistake. The stock on that rifle was excellent, an aftermarket stock would have been a downgrade (unless it was a $$$ custom made).

    If .270WSM is a cartridge you see yourself shooting and the gun is new (or like new), go and get it before someone else does!

    A Grey Wolf has a wood laminated stock and stainless steel barreled action. If it has a rubber stock it is a Synthetic stainless model. I have 4 Sako rifles and a Grey Wolf on the way in 7MM rem., all mine are very accurate and well made. That is a very good price and I would grab it if that't the caliber you want.
