1. Hey All! Lately there has been more and more scammers on the forum board. They register and replies to members requests for guns and/or parts or other things. The reply contains a gmail or hotmail address or similar ”anonymous” email addresses which they want you to reply to. DO NOT ANSWER ANY STRANGE MESSAGES! They often state something like this: ”Hello! Saw your post about purchasing a stock for a Safari. KnuckleheadBob has one. Email him at: [email protected]” If you receive any strange messages: Check the status of whoever message you. If they have no posts and signed up the same day or very recently, stay away. Same goes for other members they might refer to. Check them too and if they are long standing members, PM them and ask if the message is legit. Most likely it’s not. Then use the report function in each message or post so I can kick them out! Beware of anything that might seem fishy! And again, for all of you who registered your personal name as username, please contact me so I can change it to a more anonymous username. You’d be surprised of how much one can find out about a person from just a username on a forum such ad our! All the best! And be safe! Jim

    i have a couple Sako’s in 264. Mine have 26” barrels. Are these rare? I mostly see 264’s with 24” barrels. I assume the earlier rifles had a 26”, then they went with a 24. Why would they do that? One has a white line spacer. Is that factory or was it added?? The rifle with no spacer has a 3 digit serial, rifle with spacer is around 2200.

    Thanks for replies!!

    Judging by their appearance pending better photos, you have two very collectible Sakos which are desirable to the Sako .264 Win Mag aficionados. The .264 Winchester Magnum caliber was wrongly maligned as a barrel burner after the 7mm Rem Mag hit the market. The early Sakos with 26" barrels are more collectible due to scarcity. The double white line spacers are also rare and very attractive to some collectors. Now if you had a deluxe model with the rare engraved Buffalo, Grizzly or other floor-plates you would be even more fortunate. Enjoy them as you wish. If well cared for they will be good for many years as capable of taking down any North American non dangerous game and still maintain their value. As stated many times on this web-site, value can only be determined by an acceptable price between buyer and seller. Being somewhat rare your rifles are not often seen for sale, but value can be roughly determined by following the paid prices on the internet auction sites. Check with Sako Source, a member of the Sako Collectors Club. Sakojim.

    The .264 chambering generally brings a premium and the 26" barrel also brings a premium, so you are quite lucky to own them. Nice scope selections, also.

    I know this is an old thread but those are beautiful rifles congratulations! I would expect you have used them a little by now? Have you hunted with them?

    Yes. I hunt with them, 140 grain ballistic tips, 57 grains of IMR 4350 powder. They are both sub inch rifles.
