Had another fantastic day out with 308Roebuck yesterday. Iwas climbing into a high seat, and noticed my magazine was missing.Felt a bit of a plum! We tracked back and was lucky that it had fallen out whenI topped it up after hanging two Roe up a tree before carrying on my stalk.
It was my first time out stalking with this rifle, a Sako85, purchased second hand off a SD member. I was under the impression that Sako85 mags have a two stage release? Arenít you supposed to have to push the magin and then press the release catch to get the mag out? On mine if you touchthe catch the mag pings out. You barleyneed to brush past the catch and the magazine ejects!
I donít think this is normal? And was thinking it could be a75 mag or have something wrong with the catch?
I was so glad we found the mag, and that I Christened my newrifle first time out, as its bang on in every other respect; but I will have totape it up if the magazine keeps popping out like this.
Any one on here had this happen to their Sako 85?
