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

    Hi, I have just joined today. My rifle is a Sako Riihmaki Mannlicher .222 which was owned by my late father. Purchase date looks to be late 1954 to mid 1955. This makes the rifle just a tad younger than me.

    Just saying Hi.

    Rick

    Hi, Your father was a smart man; had you, then got a Sako; both winners. It is just a year or two younger than I am also. Welcome to the club. Wayne

    Thanks Wayne, much appreciated.

    Although we were in the lower side of income, the old man made sure he bought high quality in his firearms. He was also an excellent shot.

    G'day Rick from SW Vic. Sounds like an astute father and a nice rifle. Look forward to hearing more about it and your shooting adventures.

    Thanks for the welcome guys. I will certainly post some picks in the near future.

    How much can I discuss performance, loads and projectiles on these forums or am I limited to collection type subjects?

    I intend to open a new thread or could you recommend an existing one?

    Welcome Rick. As an avid Sako lover I am interested in anything that enhances performance, collection and enjoyment of these fine rifles. The Sako derivatives are also a topic of discussion on this forum. You will enjoy the helpful information and knowledge shared by friendly folks from around the planet. Sakojim.
