I have a P94S Finnfire Range. The rifle has no problems putting 5 shots into a 1 inch group at 100 yards. I use it for my standard (heavy) class smallbore silhouette rifle. I also like the way the stock fits me. I am well pleased with this rifle. There is only one design change that I would make. I would replace the single piece of piano wire that is used as the ejector. I would replace it with a dual extractor of some sort. Too bad that Sako doesn't make this rifle anymore. Here are a couple of pictures of the rifle and an ammo test target. All of the groups are 5 shots. The target was placed at 100 yards.

I think the best one to buy is the P94S action -- the Finnfire. I have a 78, a Finnfire, and a Quad. The 78 is a terrific rifle, built like a tank. But magazines and parts are scarcer than hen's teeth, so I'd have to recommend the Finnfire. What a great action. Lots of benchrest guns built on this action. And if you like the Range, then you have a really special gun with the adjustable stock. A used one will cost you $1200-1400. A used Finnfire hunter will go for $800-950.

You can probably get a synthetic stocked Quad for $600. They are very nice guns, too. I just like the Finnfire better. But you can get a Lilja barrel for a Quad and with that, it will probably outshoot a factory barrel Finnfire.

If you get any Sako rimfire in good shape you'll have a great rifle. :tumbs:
