    Hello to Forum members,
    Just got onto an A111 in .270W, s/n 535 - - -.
    Overall condition rated at 90% ....sub Moa, with reloads of 130gn. Hornady SP projectile over 53.5 gns of AR2209, that’s close to 4350 powder Stateside.
    Have it fitted with a Leupold VX111 in 3.5-10x40.
    Question I have is, it has a spacer at the front action screw, but not on the rear one, but has the alluminium tube spacer on the rear.
    Does the “horse shoe shaped” spacer usually go on the rear action screw too??
    Tx. Jay

    Hi Jay, nice rifle and calibre. Do you plan on using it on Sambar? The shims are used to align the bottom metal with the stock so may be under either or both action screws if needed when they came from the Sako factory.
    Lots of people dont know what they are for when they first take a Sako rifle apart.
    If you need a few I had some laser cut several years ago so can send you a few in case you aquire a rifle that needs adjustment in the future. Pic attached.
    A minutes rubbing on wet and dry sandpaper and they clean up nicely. Better than the old beer can alternative.

    Hi Sraaw,
    Just been able to get back online on the forum, had some issues.
    Thanks re info,
    I might get a couple of those “shims” later on, I will pm you.
    Yep, I will use it, and I have already taken a couple of Sambar Hinds.
    I use reloads, 130 gn Hornady SP bullets, very effective, both at about 100-120 yard shots.
    Jay
