    Hey Jim,
    Thanks much for the new discussion forum, yet I think "topic about short barrels" may not be the best title. Some new members or non-collectors may not understand that "short barrels" means the Carbine/Mannlicher. How about "Topic about Sako's with Carbine/Mannlicher/Full- length stocks? Just a suggestion[​IMG]

    Jim,

    Just a thanks for creating a spot for us "short barreled" guys to talk about our carbines.

    I know the site is new, but it's definitely headed in the right direction, IMHO.

    Wes

    Thanks Guys! This forum is for all of you! I just happened to found it when MSN closed down.

    Just to inject a contrarian note, many "Mannlicher" or "full-stock" rifles had full-length barrels. I own an L46 Mannlicher with a 23.5" barrel, and have seen many others. So "Mannlicher" and "short barrel" don't always go together.

    Sako made a lot of short barreled half-stock rifles during the years they were "wandering in the wilderness" (late 1980's and 1990s) like the Handy Rifle and the Battue. Those are certainly "carbines", but they are not "Mannlichers".

    But for what I pay for the privilege of participating here, I'm happy as a bug in a rug with this new heading![​IMG]
