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!

With kind regards Jim aka L61R

    I know Sako marketed Mannlicher-stocked rifles and rifles with left handed bolts. Question? Did Sako market a left handed mannlicher-stocked rifle? If so, I would love to track one down to complement my Heym and Steyr left handed Mannlichers. Thanks!

    As far as I know, Sako only made Mannlichers in the RH version.

    I shoot from the left shoulder but am actually right-handed and prefer a RH bolt. I acquired a unique Mannlicher-Schoenaur a few months ago with a factory RH action and LH cheekpiece (cheekpiece on the right side of the stock).

    I also have two factory Sako sporters with a RH action and LH cheekpiece. Both came from Europe as it seems that such animals were never imported to the U.S. So, it is possible that Sako did make some Mannlichers with the RH/LH combination that may be floating around Europe or some other part of the globe.

    I've also seen sporters with the barrel shortened and stock reconfigured to Mannlicher style. That's something you might consider if you have a strong yearning for a LH full-stock Sako.
