    How long does it usually take to get approval to take possession of a rifle? Is the process very complicated?

    By the way, in late April of 2017 I took the train from Oslo to Bergen. What a great trip and what a beautiful country! And at half price for oldsters like me the best bargain in the world.

    Hi Stonecreek! If I'm unlucky it can take up to 3 months waiting for the police-work. So I gave half of the money to the seller now and rest when all the papers are ok. The seller keeps the rifle until all is ok.
    Not so complicated,but I need to prove that I have the hunting-exam and have a gun-licens.
    Good to hear that you enjoyed your trip to Norway! Next time you must test the browntrout-fishing in the southern mountains! Resized_20180519_112642_175070615023340.jpg Resized_20180510_104156_175396332794107.jpeg

    Hey, that looks like a Helle with those trout. I bought one at a fishing store in Bergen while I was there and gave it to my son.

    Congrats on a lovely Sako. Please update us on your 6 PPC S491 accuracy once you get some range time in. I have the same model in a 22 PPC, but not as good condition. I'm not getting much load work done the last while but my 22 PPC has shot in the .3's and am hoping to find a load that will do that consistently.

    Hi!
    Your Sako in 6 mm PPC brings back memories. When Sako first began making these rifles I bought one new with 10 + boxes of Sako ammo
    I found mine accurate to 200 yds +
    Used it for deer (farmer friend had a permit to harvest) and I was invited to help him.
    Quickly found the rifle could kill a deer when point of aim was correct. However a slight mis-judgment could easily just wound. We did not lose any deer, but I decided that a larger caliber would be better for deer.
    Mine was a single shot.
    Yours looks very nice
    Jim

    Do you remember what kind of bullet you used? Here in Norway I can use the rifle on max roedeer-size deere.
