    According to the data seen here, ser# 91348 puts it in 1966 which is confusing considering the info posted by stonecreek and Old Hippie. Lots of head scratching with these old Sakos. Makes it interesting for sure.

    I did remove the ladder from the rear sight and mounted a VX-1 3-9 from the cabinet. I've had these high Leupold rings sitting here for years and doubted I'd ever use them but there they are. A bit higher than I like to mount them but it leaves the rear sight base unmodified and I can easily reinstall the ladder.
    I may have to search out a Burris Mini as posted by icebear. I do have the Sako rings that would work. I shot it with some 50 gr Ballistic Tips and IMR4198. Groups were about 1-1/4" for 5 shots.

    Let us pray:

    "Dear Lord, despite years of enlightenment since obtaining the Sako Factory Records and providing mankind with the Truth and the Light of the Randomness of Sako serial numbers, the misinformation on Sako serial numbers continues to be propagated by the Philistines of our time.

    The False Prophets place before us tablets of untruth, attempting to cause us to believe that Sako serial numbers are somehow chronological and that the year Anno Domini Birth of a sacred Sako can be conjured from its number.

    Lord, we beseech thee to smite those False Prophets and destroy the untruthful tablets which lead our flock astray and thus restore Truth to our peoples such that they shall know the actual Factory Records forever and ever.

    Amen."

    “The Fishgod sheds a tear, as he looks upon his fold. He knows the truth has been discovered, yet it still cannot be seen. He knows his true disciples look to him with faith and with confidence that the truth does not make the Sako shoot any better. Yet the Sakonites still question”….{Bloorooster-4.20}
