    Howdy,

    I just posted in the new member section, I better post a few pics of the rifles I own. I have more that I don't have pictures of, those are unfortunately back on the ranch. The rifles pictured are the few that I have with me, I'll do my absolute best to get some pictures of the poor, neglected rifles stuck in safes back home.

    I don't know a lot about these rifles, I inherited some and others I've collected over the years. I've just ran across a few at random times and purchased them and added them to the pile of these beautiful rifles that I already own. Hoping to learn more about them as members reply.

    Thank y'all,

    Curious as to what those are chambered in? Three nice old Sako actions that look like there would be some great stories behind.

    I'll say !.....wow, those are really nice rifles. Looks like the O'Brien is a .17Magnum. I know nothing about this chambering. I did see where the bolt appears to have been uncocked on the O'Brien, but still can be inserted into the receiver ? Looks weird to me, but that just could by my ignorance about the rifles that you own.

    Again, very nice ! congrats and thanks for sharing...

    I don't think it is uncocked, but rather a custom bolt shroud that you're seeing. I've seen a number of custom bolt shrouds on Sakos, but this is one I haven't seen before.

    Oh.......it's de-cocked alright. The enlarged pic shows the firing pin sear at the bottom of the bolt cocking ramp.

    I think I've seen that particular O'Brien Field Grade 17 Mach IV before..........looooong ago. Hmmmm........
