Wow. Just inherited Grandfather's SAKO fox rifle via an uncle. I hope it likes 50gr Hornady 222 Supervarmint. Trying to get grandpa's hand-loads legally shipped to me. Anybody got an idea of when manufactured? My guess is about 1953. Uncles seem to concur but they are 83+ years old. Here are some pics and details: (see pics) s/n 11814 on bolt and gun various stamps on barrel rear peep sight included SAKO medium 1" / 26mm scope split-rings with original SAKO box Old fixed Weaver K6-60 scope with good picture as far as I can tell Uncle thinks scope will be spot on still even after shipping. I disagree, but really hope I am wrong. Questions: 1) Was it manufactured about 1953? 2) Likelihood of scope being still holding zero after shipping or worth keeping on rifle (want to keep it original, but also want to hit the coyotes with it) 3) Can a modern Leupold 1" scope be mounted on those rings??
