    New Sako 75 (.243)

    Just thought I'd stick a few (but not very good) pictures up of my new Sako 75, after a heads up thread by Long Range Rob I just had to buy it, it was listed as a Sako Forester but in fact it's an as new Sako 75, picked it up last week, but needed some Optilocks and a new scope ,so bought a Docter 2.5-10 x 48 and topped it with that, need a few more bit(Butler Creeks, sling and swivels (borrowed this off my .270) and a bipod) had it screw cut and a lighter trigger spring fitted today by Dave Wylde at Valkyrie Rifles(top job) then it's complete

    Looks like you've got a cracking rifle there. I love my 75 but it's not quite as pretty as yours. Almost though!

    It was 75 and a first class job completed whilst I waited and watched. He's the only smith I use, his work is absolutely top notch, he'll also drop you a new trigger spring in if you find yours a little heavy for a fiver
