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 y’all! New memberJust picked up my father’s Sako from my brother. I know it is chambered in .243, but hoping someone can tell me more from the pics attached. I am assuming new in mid to late ‘60s, and I know it took down many PA deer in the day. Any info greatly appreciated. 62012A0C-819C-45AF-8D91-E00F24508AD1.jpeg D2670B7A-0095-4397-A4BF-A7B220B5E077.jpeg

    Looks great. Lots of character and the good old scope mt for a B and L Scope. I would bet that barrel says it is Bofors Steel right below the scope bell.

    Very nice!
    Classic early Sako DeLux/B&L scope combo.
    Two Deer engraving is a seldom seen attribute.
    Very accurate set up on one of the best hunting rifles known to mankind!

    You are correct - it is stamped Bofors Steel.
