    Differance in new Sako\'s vs Old Sako\'s

    I was wondering if one of the smiths here or any of you fine gents might know if their are major differances in the newer Sako 75 vs the old Sako L691's

    Everywhere I look , I see do get dead ended when searching for parts for my L691 , it kinda sucks so I was wondering if any of the parts from the new models are close to the old ones?

    Anybody know where a guy could find parts for the older Sako's

    Cant tell you where to find parts, but I can tell you that the old Sako L691 has a fully machined bolt and the 75 is forged.

    I have a Sako L691 myself and have searched High and low on the history of them with no success.

    I always thought the major difference between the Sako75 and the older models is the 75's three lug bolt????
