Hi boys and gals! So I've been more on this forum than anything else the last few days and thought I'd best just register since I'm in here all day. I'm in the process of buying my first hunting rifle, a used Sako L61R Finnbear (it seems). And I've spent a lot of time in here to try to learn about this infamous brand and how they allegedly manufacture the best firing arms in the world. That being said, I would like some help to figure out a few things. One of the, how to read markings on the stock in relation to serial number etched in the barrel. This might be best to post in a separate thread..? I live on a farm in the south east of Norway and I'm preparing to hunt moose and deer this fall. In addition we do have a ongoing invasion of wild boar, so that it also something I'll engage in. I'm 38, mechanic and self proclaimed handyman with two children.
