Re: Sako Optilock scope mount

Dude... sorry about that last post... I was thinking you said "300 WSM"... but I see you have a 30-06; so the action length issue is not relevant for you... thanks

I plan on picking up a Sako 75 Walnut in 300 Win Mag to replace a browning rifle I sold. It seems everyone is into the short magnum thing now. I have brass, reloading dies and ammo for 4 calibers that don't own right now,for rifles that I sold or traded Including a 300 win mag. I talked to a sales man where I'm getting my Finn-light and he said they had all ready went through their inventory and had 4 out of the 40 Tikka rifles they had in stock get sent back. They only had a handfull of the Sako rifles and they were all marked down to clearance prices. I found a list of serial numbers on another web site and it looks like my Finn-light was made before the rifles affected by the recall. I never owned a Sako before, I never even looked at them, thought they were over priced. If they can shoot as well as advertised I will be very happy. If I can't get a rifle to shoot well, I won't keep it.

Sako's are the best "out of the box" hunting rifle's in the world.

I'm sure glad to here that Sako's are the best! I have two on layaway now. A 75 Finn-light in 30-06 and a 75 Walnut in 300 Win Mag. Both new, I'm paying $750 for the 06 and 800 for the Win Mag. This I've the most I've paid for any rifle with the exception of my AR10. The orignal prices were 1250 and 1000. I guess I can justify the purchase by the savings over the orignal price and that I'll most probably never find prices like that again (the value of the dollar keeps dropping ). I've seen used 75's priced over $1000. As far as Weatherby's I found that they vary quite a bit in price. The same place had a bunch of Weatherby's for $399. They had another Weatherby model for 1500. They are ugly, the 399 guns. Crude black plastic stock and dull matt finish on the rest of the gun. I think Walmart sells Weatherby too. Walmart isn't into the high end stuff. I was very dissapointed in my last Browning rifle. Are Browning's over priced?

Re: Sako Optilock scope mount

Well, in all fairness to Weatherby, the rifles at Walmart or the $399.00 rifles, are made by Howa.
Not real deal Weatherbys.

I had a Sako .300 Win mag 75, SS and wished I had never sold it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
The walnut 75 you are getting is beautiful!! Lucky guy..sakofan...Be sure to look at other options of mounts, rather than jumping on the Opti Locs. I just didnt like them, YMMV.

Dude ,
I just answered this in another post but I have 2 sako's and the slickest strongest and most secure set up I have found is the burris dual dove tail bases with burris signature rings. I am a huge Leupold fan but there set up suck's for sako ,use burris base and rings with leupold scope
************************************************** ********
My post now:

I think I'll try the burris dual dove tail bases with burris signature rings like brian suggested. Hopefully I won't have a problem with windage adjustment. I had a problem once with a model 70 and a leupold 12X scope. I think the receiver was tapped off center, with the dual dovetail the scope is the only windage adjustment and I did not have enough adjustment on the scope. I had to go back to a standard base and rings. I've avoided using a dual dove tail since then. I'm going to give it a try. I'm sure glad I found this web site, I could have spent a lot more money on something that isn't worth it (Optilock mount). Thanks for all the good information.

AMEN

Dude,
That is the awesome thing about the Burris dual dove tail signature rings you dont need to worry about windage ,they make 5,10 and 20 moa inserts so you can get your scope straight on the gun and just use your scope for fine ajustments.
I use my rear ring for windage and if you want some added elevation for the long shot put an insert in the front ring for up to 20 moa elevation.
your rings have 100%grip and no marks left behind,one of the true win ,win deals you'll find.
