Yes you are all true Sako's are quite a nice rifle. They are now also doing a custom shop where one can upgrade timber and things.
I do have dozens of different brands of rifles. But the only ones I ever talk about or am in a group like this is for Weatherbys. I am in 3 FB Weatherby groups and one Tikka group and that's it.

I really liked the look of your Sako so was doing some reading about them.
Some of the reviews the guys complained about when ejecting the cases hit the scope tube and if you ejected to slow it fell back into chamber.

Let us know how it works, we want a real review. :)

Hmm I will definitely watch for that when I get out to test it and let you know. I am not sure when though, as it has been very hot here and so I haven't been able to get out for a shot or test and sight in several of my rifles. I even have new Weatherbys here that I haven't shot yet!!

 I don't feel like doing much in the heat either but that's not a problem here right now. We are -30 tonight headed for -38 tomorrow night :o

Sako rifles do that? I cant believe that. Incredible . I had never seen something like that In a Sako but witches dont exist but there are sure. Really a pity.

Nice!

I've been considering one of them in .300 wsm myself!


Still haven't figured out why other companies can offer synthetics as nice as weatherby does...? licensing agreements or something?
