    sako help

    whilst i had my rifle out last night i noticed that the barrel is sloping left and right and just wondered what could be done, obviously ive checked that the screw's which attach the rifle to the stock are tight and to get the barrel to stop moving i seem to have to over tighten the screws and im thinking of maybe glass bedding the rifle but before i do i thought i would see what others think and if it makes any differnce the rifle is a sako 85

    Make sure everything's tight and if it shoots straight leave well alone it's ment to be a floating barrel

    Sounds familiar,
    I recently bought a second hand sako 75 in .243 which has a recurrent problem. The screws can be as tight as you like before shooting, but after a good session (ie when zeroing etc) the screws sometimes loosen enough for the whole action to move in the stock. Since buying the rifle about 2 months ago and having it 'fixed' by the shop i bought it from a few weeks ago, i treated myself to a new scope. Needless to say very excited to take it out today to zero it in.....groups got worse by the end of the session - you guessed it wobbly action.
    Gun going back to shop on tuesday for a refund, well peed off.

    god no not that bad basical the screws which attach the stock to the action come loose which then lets the action move left and right which is obviously attached to the barrel so the barrel can be pushed to the left or right of the channel it sits in within the fore end i know that its also been mentioned that the rifle has a floating barrel and yes im fully aware of this but this is not the problem because i know that the barrel can be pushed either let or right or what ever direction you fancey as its free floating but it will always return back to centre when you stop putting pressure on it un-like what its doing now

    Exact same situation with my rifle, wonder if there is a problem with the sako design?
