Thanks for all the info, everyone. I ended up selling the A7 to a friend. Honestly, I was so amazed at the deep discount for the A7 that I bought it without thinking things through. Even if it had run as I'd hoped, the Roughtech Pro model wasn't a good fit for me. The barrel seemed long and heavy, and I think the standard synthetic stainless would've been a better choice. My friend is confident he can get it running the way he wants. I'm on the lookout for a good used 75 or 85, hopefully sold by a trustworthy owner who can tell me honestly if there have been any ejection issues or other weird stuff. As far a pre-75 rifles, are there any that you would recommend? I'm also seriously considering a Tikka, although I am shallow and just don't like the looks of them (no offense to anyone who does). I'm not quite ready to give up on the Sako dream.
