Rail for Sako

I am using a Nightforce scope on an old L61R Sako receiver with Warne rings. Nightforce scopes are a bit on the heavy side and I would like to use a Picatinny rail and Badger rings. About a year ago I saw a Website that had rails that slip over the Sako integral dovetail, then holes are drilled and tapped to secure the rails. I have searched all over the place and darned if I can fine the site. Anyone know where I can get a rail for a Sako? Thanks.

BTW, for anyone reading this post, Near is sold out of the Sako rails and doesn't anticipate producing more for about a year.

Try US Optics, they have a rail for the Sako M995. I think George at GA Precision can also put a custom rail on.
