Actually if you look into the background of the weapon you will see that when the military was shopping for a new boltgun, they wanted a short action, of which there were only two true production short actions on the market at the time. One of which was Sako, a foreign company, and the only other true manufacturer of a short action was Remington, at the time, a US owned company.
As I have stated over and over again, a good gunsmith can make any rifle action shoot bug holes all day long - but everyone should do their research and know what they are getting.
After all, can you honestly say that our Armed Forces are truly given the best overall products out there? Or are they given what is available on a production scale, at a price the military is wishing to pay?
