This is Sako stand on Ejection or Extraction Problems.... I have since contacted executives at Beretta, who said they are passing my problem onto the lady who is responsible for the rifles... below is the original customer service response from Sako... hopefully this is not the same note I get back from Beretta! The 24 hour campfire forum is a good site, but from what they say.... Beretta and Sako are turning their backs on good customers. The note below supports that... sadly. Sako-Tikka Ejection Issues Answer ID 997 | Published 09/05/2014 04:25 PM | Updated 09/05/2014 04:25 PM I purchased a Sako 85 rifle and mounted a scope on it. I'm having issues with spent brass striking the scope. What can I do to resolve this issue? Occasionally, we receive customer complaints regarding Sako rifles ejecting spent cases that either strike the scope or strike the scope turret and fall back inside the action of the rifle. This situation is predominately caused by both the scope mounts and type of scope (particularly scopes with extended turrets) installed on the rifle. A secondary consideration is how rigorously the bolt is operated by the user. Beretta will not consider rifles that exhibit the condition above to be a warranty issue. Provided that the rifle fully extracts and ejects the spent casing, the rifle will be considered functional and serviceable. Sako Arms cannot anticipate every possible scope mounting configuration when designing their rifles. Since the selection and installation of the scope and mounts are determined by the owner, it is the owner's responsibility to ensure that the system will not interfere with the operation of the rifle. An extremely small number of rifles have been returned for service for this issue and our analysis has indicated that the combination of scope mounts, scope type and scope turret location in relation to the ejection path of the spent casing have been the proximate cause creating this condition. In order to alleviate this condition, we recommend that the owner try various scope mounting options to find the one that works best.
