1. Hey All! Lately there has been more and more scammers on the forum board. They register and replies to members requests for guns and/or parts or other things. The reply contains a gmail or hotmail address or similar ”anonymous” email addresses which they want you to reply to. DO NOT ANSWER ANY STRANGE MESSAGES! They often state something like this: ”Hello! Saw your post about purchasing a stock for a Safari. KnuckleheadBob has one. Email him at: [email protected]” If you receive any strange messages: Check the status of whoever message you. If they have no posts and signed up the same day or very recently, stay away. Same goes for other members they might refer to. Check them too and if they are long standing members, PM them and ask if the message is legit. Most likely it’s not. Then use the report function in each message or post so I can kick them out! Beware of anything that might seem fishy! And again, for all of you who registered your personal name as username, please contact me so I can change it to a more anonymous username. You’d be surprised of how much one can find out about a person from just a username on a forum such ad our! All the best! And be safe! Jim

    Hello, I am new to the forum but have been visiting for a while. An L61r Finnbear was passed down to me as my first bolt action hunting rifle. It lives in my safe but now in my 50s I want to find out more about the old rifle in my safe.

    A word about that bi-pod. If left attached for a long period of time it can be harmful to the finish on your rifle.

    Looks like you have an early Finnbear .30-06 equipped with a fairly high-magnification Leupold scope; and the condition appears very good.

    The older Sakos with the Bofors Steel mark on the barrel tend to be a bit lighter and more slender than later ones and are my personal favorite of all of the generations of Sakos. Chambered in .30-06, it should make a versatile and excellent hunting rifle for any game species on this continent -- and several others.
