    Sako Vixen / L461 weaver type bases - where can I find them?

    Does anyone know of a shop in the UK that stocks weaver-type bases to fit Sako Vixen L461 tapered dovetails?
    Many thanks.

    Hey Mauser 66 why don't you get a gunsmith to fashion you a picatinny rail instead ? I got a custom one made for my L579 Sako and I will be doing the same for my Sako L461 in the near future.

    Try Alan Rhone, you may be pleasantly surprised at the price compared to some companies.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Thanks all. I have been digging and come up with weaver bases for the Forester and Vixen tapered dovetails.
    They are the weaver 65 and 67 bases (front and rear bases respectively).
    Cheers

    You may be able to obtain a picatinny rail that slides straight on to the dovetail from Alan Rhone. I recently fitted one to my Sako 85 it was quick and easy to fit and works very well.

    Richard Pope fitted a weaver rail to a set of Optilock bases for me.

    Not sure about the Vixen but for the Forester and larger actions Recknagel and Roedale Precision have rails.
    I have a Roedale rail on my L579 since a few years, perfect.
