1. For reasons unknown to us at SCC, it seems that SCC members who are AT&T users experience issues with emails and personal messages when using our forum. This is not unique to SCC and several other internet sites are reporting the same issues. Todo10, the company who helps us with the forum and hosting, have file a complaint with AT&T but we are not convinced AT&T will do anything about it. The only way around this is to register and use another email address not connected to AT&T. We are sorry for any inconveniences this might cause! Please check this link for more info: https://forums.att.com/t5/AT-T-Internet-Email-Security/Blocked-Domain-Email-or-IP-address-Questions-and-Discussion/td-p/4961060/page/28 More info will come when we know more! With kind regards Jim aka L61R

    This is an old gun, serial number 15XX with a desireable 26 inch barrel. The bore is shiny, the barrel, action and floorplate have plenty of bluing with a little wear at the extremities. The stock show use, but there are no cracks or deep gouges in the wood. It is very early and of course, has the Bofors Barrel marking and 3rd locking lug on the rear of the bolt. These guns are not common. Of course, pictures are a must, I have plenty just send an email for pictures...$999.00

    Well used, but it will use well! These 26-inchers are very uncommon. The .264 can certainly use the long tube to its advantage. I've seen better than 3250 fps coaxed from a 26" .264 using the right powder and 140 grain Nosler Partitions.

    No one seems to have an explanation why Sako offered a precious few 26" barrels in a few L61R calibers like .300 H&H and .338, as well as the .264. But to say the least, they are "collector candy".
