1. Hey All! 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: ”Hello! 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! Jim

    Did Sako ever produce any in this caliber?


    What calibers did they make in the 461/AI fullstocks? .222, .222 RM, .223, .220 Russian...not much else out there at the time. Benny and I chatted, neither of us have seen any PPC'S. Did O'Brien ever put out a fullstock? I've seen H&R's in .223 and .222.

    Thanks,

    Gary

    Gary.......

    17 Rem.........yes.

    "Kokotukki" ????..........what the hell is that???!!!(edit: Just found out it's "mannlicher-style")

    O'Brien Rifle Co. made 17MachIV, 17 Javelina, and 17 Magnum......no fullstocks.

    H&R made the 17-223, and the 17 Rem.

    Hope this helps.

    Kokotukki is full-stock in Finnish. Koko is full or complete; tukki is a stock.

    Aha! Kevin, I'm smiling! Old dog, new tricks! I had seen this model name on a sako print ad some time ago. I've been using the term lately since I picked up my AII .308, mainly so Sako gets all the recognition and Mannlicher doesn't. Now I have an AV .338 as well. Both of these are late models, with the hunter style stock as the basis for the fullstock. I know that sako made the AI using the hunter stock base as well. In .223 and .222. I've been looking for one. I have an AI hunter in .17 Rem, (with Iron sights) and I started wondering if they had ever made a full stock in .17...

    I don't think that a .17 Rem was ever on Sako's official list of full stock offerings.

    That doesn't mean that they didn't make some. As we've discovered, there are quite a few Sako one-offs, prototypes, or uncataloged products floating around, like a semi-auto rifle, an O/U shotgun, a Deluxe Finnwolf, a "magnum length" Finnwolf, and a few L46's in .32-20 to name a few.
