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

    The only method I can reasonably come up with is to install a picatinny rail on the dovetails, then you have a platform for a red dot. Contessa and a couple of other companies make a rail for Sako, action length specific. Otherwise you’d have to most likely butcher something together bubba style. Hope this helps BD.

    to add, I’ve got some Weavers I’ll give you. lol…

    Aimpoint and Millett, among others, used to make red dot sights with 1" tubes to fit in conventional rings. I'm not aware of any such sights being made now, but the older ones can be found on the secondary market. I recently found a like-new Millett red dot at a gun show, and mounted it in Ruger factory rings on a Mini-14. It replaced a newer red dot on a Picatinny rail, which I removed. I like the setup with the rings better than mounting a rail on top of the factory mounts. Here's a photo.

    Some of those old red dots also came with tube extensions to mount on longer actions.They screwed into the main tube just like a hood, only with a longer threaded section for strength.

    MAK makes a mount for AimPoint Micros. Goes on the front dovetail. Leaves the ejection port clear.
