  • Several folks on here have got a handle on Marlin serial numbers. About $300; 2) Howa 1500 if you're planning on spending $400; and 3) Tikka T3 if you're planning on spending $500. Howa serial number search.

I purchased a Sako A7 a year and a half ago. The rifle doesn't group as promised. I have spent time and money putting 2 sets of rings on it, 2 scopes, trips to the range and various boxes of ammo. I have had friends shoot it. Its the only rifle I own that I have not been able to get to group.

My 5 other rifles have no issues.I told Beretta about the issue and they suggested sending it back. I gave them all the details, advised them I bought it a year and a half ago and don't have a receipt. They gave me info stating they will pattern the rifle and if it groups sub MOA they charge $70, if not they correct the problem and it is no charge.About a week after I send the rifle I get a phone call from Beretta. They request $85 to clean and shoot/ group the rifle, before it has been shot.

Not because it grouped ok. The lady told me it's out of warranty because Sako is warrantied for a year. I advised her the information I had received in the box and online stated 2 years. She then stated the manual told me I had to have mailed the warranty card to get a warranty. The manual did not say this upon my review and despite tearing my house apart I can't find the receipt or get a duplicate from the gun shop where I purchased it.Long story short, it was then going to be $85 plus cost of any repairs. And I was already out $40 for shipping and insurance.

I got ticked that they won't take care of me after purchasing a $1,200 rifle and putting a year and half of time and money into trying to get it to function as promised. If they were not going to honor their warranty, why would I want their gunsmith working on it anyways? I will have another gunsmith I have used in the past take a look.Long story short, and the reason for this post is mostly to inform others that the Beretta customer service is terrible. There are companies that stand behind their products with no questions asked. Like Leupold and Vortex.

Warranty & Serial Number Information. Sako and Tikka rifles carry a Two-Year Limited Warranty to the original purchaser for defects in materials.

Then there are companies that will do anything they can to get out of warranty work like Beretta.Beretta had the chance to correct a bad situation and to show me they stand behind their products. They could have made me a customer for life. But instead they lost me.I will never again purchase a Beretta, Tikka or Sako product. Many of their products may function great. But if they don't work as promised don't count on the company to have your back and make it right.Beretta SUCKS!

I hope you take this into consideration in your future purchases. I will say that if you couldn't get the rifle to group within the first six months you probably should have sent it back earlier. To send it back a year and a half after the purchase and expect them to have a gunsmith check it out, spend the money on different ammo testing it, and ship it back to you after that long I would say is a stretch for most rifle companies.However, if they told you over the phone that they would do the testing and fix it if there was an issue or charge you $70 if there wasn't an issue they should do that. Typically customer service centers have their calls recorded.

This would be a good instance to have asked for the call recording number or kept exact track of the day/time you called so they can reference the call. Never had a Sako that wouldn’t shoot. A guy at our local benchrest club used to shoot a factory Tikka for HBR in the open class, and frequently won. He also had full custom.308s and a 30x47 that shot no better. You could probably sell the gun for a reasonably high price even disclosing your issue. 18 months is definitely a long time to decide on a gun.

Tikka

It’s still a shame that their warranty didn’t work out better for you. I’ve had issues with a Leupold return. Even the most widely acclaimed name in the business didn’t live up to some pretty reasonable expectations when their rings failed to fit, despite their ring height chart, and after the customer service rep admitted the chart was flawed, they wouldn’t exchange the rings because they were scuffed during mounting. How do you turn in a front ring without it scuffing? I still buy Leupold, and will continue to buy Sako. I get those who will keep buying it and I understand that most of their products probably work without an issue.I wasn't 'deciding' on this rifle for 18 months. I still want the rifle.

I just want it to function as promised. For the last 18 months I was trying ammo, rings, multiple scopes, trips to the range each time. I live over an hour from a decent range and I work a full time job and own a business. It doesn't work for me to swing by the range each week. On top of that. I kept assuming it was something I was doing.

Ammo, rings, scope, my shooting, something loose. Etc.And to all the comments about this being a long time. They have a '2 YEAR WARRANTY'!Lesson learned on my part to be more careful with receipts. I will start keeping digital copies.

However, some companies will give the customer the benefit of the doubt and that is the kind of company I prefer to buy from.
