    sako l61r stock

    Looking for a stock for a Sako L61R (Finnbear).

    One that hasn't been fettled/bedded/meddled with.

    External condition not a problem, but inletting is as close to origonal condition as possible.

    I take it that it went a bit wrong?

    To be honest I was going to get an aftermarket stock in due course so I thought I'd practice a bedding job (first time)on the old one. I didn't realise how mobile the compound became once heat was applied so a pile of it oozed out and backed up behind the insulating tape that was holding the action firm. Needless to say there was enough to lap up and trap a section of the action and take hold of a wee bit of stock next to the ejector port. I never noticed so when I whacked the action out it cracked off the wee bit of stock and a piece of bedding. Lesson learnt; next stop match bedding the new stock!
