Finally after a long lapse the hang tag data base is updated and ready for your viewing pleasure.
Very nice work thanks so much for the information. That's invalueabke information will check if there is any odd bits.
thanks.very well done.
can it be added too ?
There was a lot of trial and error getting the formatte just right. This was the first thing i have converted to ppd, look for a new version shortly with easier navigation.
If the data base can be added to, the hang tag on my L461 Vixen Sporter, #121346, has the date "73-02-21".
yes the original file i have can be added to then up loaded
i will update before the final changes are made
Many thanks Scott, that is a terrific piece of work and invaluable for we Sakophiles.
Any chance the moderators & Jim could have a chat about making a new Forum Topic on the home page, eg " SAKO Manufacture Dates and Hang tags" . It might help a lot of people to have all that information in 1 topic area, so some research can be easily done before asking "How old is my Sako?"
I actually enjoy those posts when they include photos, should be a 'by-law' that they can't ask without posting a photo! Also interesting to see the responses, but having the information in 1 place may help some people.
I have an L57 HB serial 9129 tag date 29/05/59 the one listed has a later number and earlier tag date L57 serial 9362 tag date 14/05/1959. This I guess validates that numbers and dates are a good guide achieving excellent help but not fully explaining serial number to dates. And that no real cataloguing occurred at the factory just buckets of actions pilled up in a great sako mountain.
I'm on it! You and all members can expect a small surprise in a while!
Ed is yours a 244
Fantastic work Scott...I can definately see where a large amount of time and effort went into this. I wonder if you could put the dates in sequencial order..:nerd:..it would be interesting to see how the numbers jump around! Thanks for putting this all together Bro'~Bloo
Im on it Bloo i will add a second colum for dates in order wont take long but i just have to find the time.
Scott mine is a 243
I have posted it on an earlier thread. Here it is again/
uploading has become a very difficult task trying to use basic upload but it only works rarely.
Please download the new file. Easier navigation and ease of use Bloo new catagory as requested
Here is another one for the data base.
This one came into Australia.
Scott, data base info. Original box and tags.
I will no longer be updating the data base!!!
Thanks Scott for all the work you have put into the Sako serial number data base. All the moderators that have served had done an outstanding job to maintain this site. Jim
Now I have a question, will The Sako Data Base continue to be maintained ? Jim
