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

    Sweet!! Is the extra piece of wood that extends the stock to the end of the barrel factory or added later. Really like it's looks. Never saw one like that before. Very cool !!!

    Its all factory. It is a nicely matched but separate piece of wood (the same as the the vast majority of Sako and Husqvarna full-stock rifles). It definitely came from the factory as a full-stock (w/20" barrel). With palm swell and functional cheekpiece it is a very ergonomic rifle....and...built like a tank.

    Note that the Tikka M65/55 came from the factory with a flat receiver ring top and flat rear receiver bridge, both at the same height, with dovetails and also drilled and tapped for standard scope bases. So you can use Tikka rings (see above image) or any flat bottom bases (e.g. Talley bases #252714). Very handy. Not sure why Sako didn't do this.

    They are not common but here is another one from a 2104 Danish auction:
