Re: Sako extractor question for smiths
I agree with Shawn on this one. I will say that I have opened some Rem 700 bolt faces up that were fitted with Sakos for standard rim sizes.
One trick I tried was to drill and tap the bolt under where the Sako rests flat against the bolt body. Then insert a quality screw with high strength thread locker and let cure fully, then simply mill off the screw so that it is to the proper height for working with a Magnum sized case head. I also switched out the standard extractor for one designed for a Magnum bolt face.
I will admit that the extractor lip angle is not perfect but I have yet to have any problems with one slipping off a case rim and extractor performance seems identical with one that is fitted to a magnum faced bolt.
Its a simple trick that works pretty well if needed.
I would agree with Shawn about the Win M70 push feed, would not recommend it.
