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

    Just got my first Sako - in parts. AV long receiver with no bolt and a 23" 300 Win Mag barrel. It is Ser # 592613 and is all in good condition. I am a retired Police Chief and former detective Sgt./ Deputy ME. I would like to know the mfg date of this rifle and where I might find a complete bolt and some other small parts. God Bless you all!

    Your rifle is outside of the serial number range our club has factory records for & as Sako did not build rifles in sequential order with serial numbers it is impossible to determine "exactly" when your rifle was made. What records are available from general Sako records & hang tags tell us that Model AV #589401 was made at the start of the conversion to CNC machining on May 22, 1985 & that # 620849 was made on April 28, 1989. So, I would guess your rifle was made in the late 80's. Anything more specific would be pure conjecture without valid documentation. Not having the bolt is a difficult hurdle to overcome, as they seldom come up for sale. Aftermarket stocks can be obtained & sometimes an original Sako stock will pop up for sale. Parts in general are almost non-existant unless you find someone "parting out" a rifle. You picked a difficult "first" Sako. I wish you luck!

    Thank you for the info - very helpful. Got the Sako at an auction so knew I was taking a chance but did not know parts would be so scarce, which supports the reputation of the quality of these rifles. Guess I'll hunt for parts for awhile and if not successful will try selling my receiver and barrel and start over! Thanks again Paulsonconstruction!!!

    One Sako AV Magnum bolt is $400.00 with 100% satisfaction.
