Lately there has been more and more scammers on the forum board.
They register and replies to members requests for guns and/or parts or other things.
The reply contains a gmail or hotmail address or similar ”anonymous” email addresses which they want you to reply to.
DO NOT ANSWER ANY STRANGE MESSAGES!
They often state something like this:
Saw your post about purchasing a stock for a Safari. KnuckleheadBob has one. Email him at: [email protected]”
If you receive any strange messages:
Check the status of whoever message you. If they have no posts and signed up the same day or very recently, stay away. Same goes for other members they might refer to. Check them too and if they are long standing members, PM them and ask if the message is legit. Most likely it’s not.
Then use the report function in each message or post so I can kick them out!
Beware of anything that might seem fishy!
And again, for all of you who registered your personal name as username, please contact me so I can change it to a more anonymous username.
You’d be surprised of how much one can find out about a person from just a username on a forum such ad our!
All the best! And be safe!
My thoughts as well…Sako rifles typically feed nicely.
Kehl..How many rounds are you loading into the box?
Some AI’s will hold 7 or 8 rounds but aren’t really supposed to.
Very interesting timber on this one!
Once you get the feeding issue resolved, you should name her Mono Lisa!
While I do not currently own a M78, I am familiar with the Hornet. A fun and potent little round!
Mine is an earlier L46 model…. .5 MOA @ 100 is pretty common when I do my part at the bench.

That’s a sweetheart of a rifle!
I’m kinda thinkin’ everyone has had this “Misfortunate alignment of circumstances “
Once or twice..like you know, it didn’t look like that before we took it apart , no reason for it to not go back like it was..boils down to brains … or brawn.
So here are the trigger assemblies…until they were side by side , I’d not noticed how different they are.
Not as good as the modern single stage trigger like on the P94, but very usable once you get used to it.
Something else I’ve noticed is that Sako did not number the bolt to match the gun...
But is it personal preference or matching trends?
I feel the 46 is a better rifle in many ways. The magazine capacity of 3-1 has never bothered me but many enjoy the increased round capability of the 461. I think Sako put time and effort into streamlining and modernizing their rifles in ‘59, by...
Here is a shot of my Hornet showing the Sako smooth top CP.
There are 3 variants in the L46 lineup.
Wing type safety is the earliest
Then the smooth top and milled top rollover safety CP’s to the end of production. The 461 came with new improvements overall, loosing the 3 round detachable box...
The earliest P54’s (and 46’s) were round top models, only having provisions for the optional peep sight. Mine is numbered 238xx . It has the SAKO P54 circle stamp on top. Much like the L46 the receiver side is stamped Riihimaki along with the ser no. The trigger is two stage and adjustable. The...
