    That is one beautiful rifle! Those little Sako actions are jewels! Also, the wood on your rifle is about the best I've seen on a Sako.

    I have a Vixen in .223 that belonged to my uncle and I cherish it. My friend has two Sakos like yours, one in 22 PPC and one in 6PPC. Those are the most accurate off-the-shelf rifles I've ever seen (they even beat my Savage BVSS-S).

    Congratulations on a fine rifle!

    Once in a while even I speak Finnish. What are you using the SAKO for? Do you hunt grouse (teeri, metso) with it? Would be perfect for that task. I have a 6PPC benchrest gun, I can only imagine what a 22PPC would do taking down a few grouse from a distance. That is a sweet setup! I have a 3-12x56 Victory Diavari on my SAKO AIII (7RM) and I am hoping my next Varmint rig will have the same scope you're wearing on yours. Best (hunting) glass money can buy!
