Are the Sako S20 Closeouts Too Good to be True??

Why haven't you bought the Sako S20? You don't like accurate high-end rifles at a blue-collar man's budget? I understand, most people exclude Sako when choosing a hunting rife because they are usually out of most people's budget. The S20 Hunter or Precision variant however is less than $1600 bucks and right now at Europtic, they are even cheaper than most of the bland Tikka T3X rifles we know and love.

The Sako S20 is essentially a more refined Tikka T3 with the same buttery smooth action. It features a two-stage adjustable trigger, adjustable modular stock, QD sockets, sling stud swivels, and a vertical grip.

During our full video review, the S20 destroyed the factory 1 MOA guarantee and produced .25 MOA groups with the 6.5 Creedmoor Hornady Precision Hunter and Match offerings. The reality is, that the S20 is likely more accurate than the person pulling the trigger.

Our rifle was set up with Meopta Optika 5 4-20 scope and rings from Europtic. Although we chose this scope for this particular rifle, the Vortex Razor HD LHT 4.5-22x50 MOA variant is our favorite hunting optic of choice. The action is a shorter 70-degree throw and has a 0 MOA rail machined into the receiver. Our bipod of choice is the Atlas BT12 because it is rock solid and lightweight for our Sako S20 6.5 Creedmoor Hunter.

I cannot recommend the S20 from Sako enough and in fact, I would be surprised if I don't buy one in 300 Win Mag at any moment. Please watch our full review of the rifle on YouTube for a comprehensive look into why we love this rifle!
