    Hi all, I just purchased my very first Sako and thought I would join this great forum.

    she is a Forester Deluxe in .308, serial numbers suggest its one of the later guns manufactured (303xxx)
    I have purchased a Zeiss Conquest HD5 3-15x42 and a set of Sako optilock bases and rings (extra low).

    Sorry for the shitty pictures, I plan to take some decent ones soon, its such a pretty rifle!

    Welcome from Alaska, the only US place that is as large as one of your typical Aussie States!

    I had some good internet friend from down there in a common variant cycle forum group imported into Oz and the US. As good a bunch to correspond with as I ever came across.

    Several gave me standing invitations if I could ever manage the trip. I probably can't but all were great representatives for what I had heard Aussies were like.

    That is one nice rifle and the pictures are good, just need MORE!

    I recently moved but was in Alaska for 30 years and every Aussie I met fit right in. We'd tell those Texans to be careful or we'd cut Alaska in half and they'd be the third largest state. The Texas cut was always the smallest on the menu.
    Welcome and nice rifle.
