Re: Nikon optics
Ian, I had to look again at my forend to be sure. No gap. But, there's a small raised area right where you described, about a inch long.
As far as the crack in the trigger recess, I dont remember. I have had the action out a few times, to shave a little off the bedding and allow it to truly "free float". Thats the only trouble I have had with this rifle.
The barrel was touching on the left side of the forend, causing some inconsistant groups, that I pulled my hair out over!!
No more trouble now though.
Ian, are your Sako's REALLY fickle, concerning the bullets it will shoot properly?? By properly, I am refering to 1/2 inch or less.
She do like the SMK's though!! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] ..sakofan..
Yes, the Optilocs BLOW!! They are good rings, but, damn they are HIGH!! The little inserts that come with them are good.
I use the Leupold QD rings, and they are quite good as well.
If they didnt work, I was going to try Warne's, or anougher set of Talley's.
