    Did Sako ever produce any in this caliber?


    What calibers did they make in the 461/AI fullstocks? .222, .222 RM, .223, .220 Russian...not much else out there at the time. Benny and I chatted, neither of us have seen any PPC'S. Did O'Brien ever put out a fullstock? I've seen H&R's in .223 and .222.

    Thanks,

    Gary

    Gary.......

    17 Rem.........yes.

    "Kokotukki" ????..........what the hell is that???!!!(edit: Just found out it's "mannlicher-style")

    O'Brien Rifle Co. made 17MachIV, 17 Javelina, and 17 Magnum......no fullstocks.

    H&R made the 17-223, and the 17 Rem.

    Hope this helps.

    Kokotukki is full-stock in Finnish. Koko is full or complete; tukki is a stock.

    Aha! Kevin, I'm smiling! Old dog, new tricks! I had seen this model name on a sako print ad some time ago. I've been using the term lately since I picked up my AII .308, mainly so Sako gets all the recognition and Mannlicher doesn't. Now I have an AV .338 as well. Both of these are late models, with the hunter style stock as the basis for the fullstock. I know that sako made the AI using the hunter stock base as well. In .223 and .222. I've been looking for one. I have an AI hunter in .17 Rem, (with Iron sights) and I started wondering if they had ever made a full stock in .17...

    I don't think that a .17 Rem was ever on Sako's official list of full stock offerings.

    That doesn't mean that they didn't make some. As we've discovered, there are quite a few Sako one-offs, prototypes, or uncataloged products floating around, like a semi-auto rifle, an O/U shotgun, a Deluxe Finnwolf, a "magnum length" Finnwolf, and a few L46's in .32-20 to name a few.
