I just purchased a Sako Stainless Synthetic rifle in .308! There are a few things that I've noticed that make me a bit curious. First of all when I looked the rifle over I noticed that it doesn't have the Key-Concept locking device. Does anyone know why it wouldn't? This doesn't hurt my feelings one bit!! Actually I despise integrated locking systems on any firearm, but I was going to ignore it on this rifle because I loved every other thing about it. Secondly, I thought it was a 75 model. I guess it still is, but it just has Sako III on the receiver and the serial number and Sako symbol. Is that normal? All in all, this is a sharp rifle and the action is really nice. The trigger is very crisp and I guess someone must have adjusted it down to the lightest weight because it doesn't take much!! Unlike the Weatherby Accumark 30-378 I once had. Removeable mags aren't my favorite thing outside the world of ARs, but this one is nice!! I'm going to go after a few more of the mags. EVERYTHING mechanical is stainless! That's nice too! I was going to let fiftydriver build a rifle up from a Rem. 700 action, but I think he could make this a sexy piece of work with some aftermarket goodies. Sakofan has shared his Sako input. Anyone else have any ideas about this rifle and what it can become? Any aftermarket suggestions? Not as many options as Rem. (sorry fiftydriver), but I have found a few things that will certainly do. I think after the folks at McMillan and Krieger have their input, and a visit to Fort Shaw, Montana and this little lady might just get someone's attention.
