On the flip side I look forward to the pics of your new 6 SAUM!
I'm very surprised that SAKO allows a weak engineering design like that in their rifles. They cant be that dumb and I'm sure they're not that dumb. I'm sure someone in the food chain decided to cut some cost there. My smith poited out that the simple "L" shaped designed allowed them to mass produce the lug from a piece of extruded aluminum. Adding the additional lug to fit the receiver slot requires a lot more machining and wasted material. But how much more could it cost for a $1600 rifle?
Yeah, I chose the 6 SAUM because it was a lighter cartridge than the 300 WSM. Same bolt thrust but less recoil. I figured it would work better with that lug system they have,
The poor design is bad enough, but most SAKO's and Tikka's shoot well. But every now and then you get a lemon. What really ticks me off is Beretta's treatment of me.
