Is the rifle new? All new Sako's have the Key Concept, I believe. Mine did.

What rings/scope mount are you going with??

It better be new! Well, it better be unfired! If it's an older rifle, that's fine. I'd just like to know more about it. Kinda cool serial # 444007 It does look as if someone slipped some bases or rings on the receiver, but I cleaned up in the dove tail crevice and you'd never know it now. I haven't decided on the rings and bases yet. The OptiMounts came with the rifle, but they're blued and I want some stainless ones. I'm looking for something really hardcore in my rings and or bases. Stainless and extremely tough! Cost not a big issue. (You wouldn't make Jennifer Anniston wear a CZ) All recommendations welcome.

Auburn... I had the exact same rifle... no keylock shroud... it was an earlier "Stoeger" import... I loved everything about it, didn't plan on doing anything to it except lightening the trigger pull (very nice and easily adjustable trigger)... in my case, however, when I removed the stock to mill out (clearance) the bolt handle cutout I discovered the stock was cracked at the recoil lug area... it was a bargain, but not if I had to replace the stock; I returned the rifle; guess I'm just spoiled by the McMillan custom stocks to the point where it's hard to accept anything lesser... my guess is you'll be very happy with your Sako... I would however go to Remington or custom action for all out custom rifle... good shooting... Larry

Mine has the Beretta import stamp on the right side of the barrel. Kinda strange. I am concerned about the faulty stainless barrel batch that they recalled. I am going to call before I fire it.

Re: New Rifle!

Conetrol will make a set of stainless rings for you.
You will have a slight waiting time, but it will be worth it.
I like Conetrols. They are a b&$^h to install, but once they are installed you should have no problems...sakofan..

Re: New Rifle!

Auburn... Beretta can provide you with recall info with your serial number... these were all 2004 models... also take a look inside the stock in the recoil lug area, just to be on the safe side, and when you remove the stock, check for proper torque on the action screws when you break them...before shooting!

I love this rifle and would like to find a barreled action exactly like this to commit to for whitetail...oh yeah, the design of the receiver dovetail makes for a strong ring mount, no matter what you go with, as it tapers wider toward the front, making it super strong during recoil...at least theoretically... good shooting....thanks
