    Ok so I found a rifle other than the Remmy 770, what do you guys think of the Tikka rifles made by Saiga?

    Very good reputation from what I hear, no first hand experience though.

    Sako

    Tikka rifles are made by Sako. Both companies are part of the Beretta family.

    Worked in gun retail for a while, everyone who owned one seemed to love them.

    To me the gun feels comfortable when I hold it and I appreciate how light the Lite version is, but I do not like how many plastic parts are used and the price of extra magazines. But I haven't heard many bad things about them. If the plastic does not bother you, then it should be a fine shooting gun.

    Tikkas are top notch rifles made in Finland. They're imported by Beretta USA. They have the mags and accessories.
    Saigas are 'sporterized' AK's made in Russia. Currently imported by Russia/America Armory Co.
    Buy the Tikka.

    I've had the chance to shoot a couple and they shoot very well. Like Bartowski, I don't like the plastic, in fact I don't like the way it looks at all but the bolt is very smooth, trigger is adjustable and it shoots very well.
