Thanks for adding me. I have been hunting and shooting for many years but this is my first Sako. I tend toward Marlin lever guns for deer but a couple of bad weather days last year made me decide to get an all-weather rifle. Just picked up a like-new A7 Coyote in 25-06. Curious as to whether other hunters think its worthwhile to get the aluminum trigger guard and bolt cover? I prefer not to have plastic on a rifle but then again the whole stock is synthetic (another first for me). Also, the rifle has a Nightforce picatinny rail. I'm partial to Dednutz mounts on my Marlins. Would be interested in thoughts about the relative merits of the two (and open to offers on the picatinny). Thanks all and "Howdy".
