I contacted Richard, at Near mfg last week about getting several bases for a couple of Sako projects I am working on. He does not have any in stock and didn’t know when he was going to have time to do any. Basically, he is busy working on more popular (money making) projects and does not have time to re-tool/program for 3-4 bases. Since I need these bases, I would like to put together a LRH buy so that those in need can get these for their projects. I have one Near base for a Sako, and they are the best bases money can buy – especially when you consider the machine fit in the dovetail of the Sako action. If you want a Sako base now is the time to get together and make a group order so he will machine these before the end of the year. Let me know.
