Re: Sako barrel thread question
I'm having a Winchester 70 rebarrelled with a Sako barrel. The following are some of the Sako thread dimensions which match or are close to the Winchester 70, 1 inch x 16 TPI thread dimensions.
L579 & early L61 = .870" L x 1.0" Dia x 16 V-TPI
L61R or an AV it is a 1.045 X16 TPI.The small and medium actions use 1.00 X 16 TPI on the medium and I am not familiar with the small L461 action.
Some say Sako 75 are metric, not sure about that one. I have found some threads where they say Sako 75's they have done are metric 1.5mm pitch & I think 26mm diameter, they weren't sure of that diameter though. Others say all the Sako 75 actions they have re-barrelled have been 0.996"-0.997" x 16TPI. Someone with more knowledge on this subject may be able to shed some light.
Tikka 1" x 16 TPI
Sako TRG 21 is M27 x 1.5mm
