I've got Â£500 burning a hole in my pocket for my first rifle, I've been looking at a Sako Quad synthetic. Any tips/ reccomendations? Paper punching and Bunny slotting will be the standard.

I thought MDN did a sticky on this?boney_m said:I'm in the same boat as monti. I'm thinking of getting a rifle when i'm posted back to UK. What are the licencing and storage requirements for .22 rifles?

I tried one of their 223's where the sear seemed to have just been hacksawed out and not finished.ugly said:Ive seen one with a fair amount of machining marks in the boltway and one with scabs of steel missing from the bolt face!
Difficult to change e==when you have already had it entered on your ticket and written to the plod! Usually means a 1 for 1!

I know it can be modified to the hilt but as a standard rifle are they any good?
Hobgoblingobbler said:Anschutz 1712 or similar. Given your dual role it would be better to opt for a silhouette rifle (heavy barrel but light overall). Good to 150m prone or 50m standing and will group as well as 98% of 'pure' target rifles.
The inaccuracy of any scope over open sights will be the greatest accuracy loss factor here, not the inherent accuracy of the rig.
