Thread: Sako M591

    Sako M591

    Dear all.

    Can anyone give me any info on the Sako M591?

    such as where does it fit in the Sako model range, are they well built, reliability and any one got or had one?

    many thanks

    I have an M591 in .243, not sure of the production dates, but they have a certain class about them compared to modern Sako rifles which i think are made from inferior steel.

    Hi RAS 243.An excellent rifle as you would expect from Sako.Bought one as a donor rifle and rebarrel led into a 22.250 by Steve Bowers.He said one of the best mass produced actions out there.Also had an amazing walnut stock with fab figuring which I sold on as it would have been a travers ty to have that on a varmint/fox rifle.Replaced by a Macmillan.Punch in sako 591 into Internet and there is a full manual and parts list for it.regards.Richard.

    Ps: older sakos are what I would head for if I ever had the money again,

    Had one some years ago, replaced it with the very similar Sako A11 excellent rifles.

    Many thanks to you all, I guess with all rifles there are followers. Just got a slot for a 22-250 and can't afford a Sauer so thinking Sako. Could go 85 but thought of a M591.

    Where's your evidence for that comment? Or is it just another "they don't make 'em like they used to"?

    I'm not a metallurgist, so no evidence as such, just my opinion.

    I have a 591 (in 7mm08) and three stainless 75s (223, 243, 30-06) and my brother has a wood/blue 75 (in 223). I can that I see any difference in quality between any of them.
