I thought I'd take the time to show everyone my method of installing an ebony forend tip on a Sako 85.
There are many ways of doing it, this is just my preferred method.
First, the desired length was marked, carefully cut and removed. The ebony replacement was roughly cut oversized.

More of a warning to readers thinking of buying a Sako than anything else.

Looking to pick some brains. I have a Sako A7 which I love. The only thing I am not a big fan of is the plastic bolt shroud, it looks cheap. I noticed another A7 had a metal bolt shroud on it. I believe this was off of a Sako 85. Am I correct in this assumption and if so is it...

Hello everyone, My name is Steve and I'm new to the forum here but not necessarily new to deer stalking.
Just a quick question and some information to anyone around Scotland who are looking to do their DSC1. I have pre booked a course with Jelen (Premier Wildlife Services) but have found out...
A question if I may please gents; has anyone with a Sako 85 had any issues with the Sako Gamehead 150g or found an alternative brand or variety an even better option with the 85? Any direct experience greatly appreciated (and I don't wish to home load, as I only take a handful of deer a year for...
Do any members have experience of using a Lightstream 5-20x50 on a Centrefire rifle?

I've got a 30mm tube scope with a 56mm objective to go onto a Sako 75 III action. I'm after something a bit different from normal Optilocks. Does anyone have either:
Leupold Quick Release bases like these:

Not worried about whether matte...
Wanted, as above: the quick detachable Optilock bases and mounts for a Sako. Low profile 30mm rings. Must be the QD model. Blued preferred. If anyone knows where these are stocked in the UK, that would also be of interest.
Any help gratefully received.
Having recently had Leupold QR mounts/rings on a rifle, I was exceptionally impressed with their repeatability and return to zero. As I have Sakos on the whole, I wondered if anyone had any experience with the Optilock QR mounts which I don't think I have seen before? I remember a...
