Re: Sako A7 Top loading?

Thank you Tikkamike. I was sure all single column magazines load the same way but had to ask. A single column rifle magazine has to come out of the rifle and then it loads just like say a single column 1911 pistol magazine. Push down; then slide back; repeat. For a rifle to top load the magazine must be double column like a 98 Mauser, Winchester Model 70, or Sako 85 [even though the 85 has a detachable magazine it is still double column]. I am clear on this now.
