• 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: ima[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

VL63 lever not closing the last .25 in without a good push

Sako Collectors Club Discussion Forum


I recently took the internals apart, cleaned, lubed and reassembled but I am having to really push to get the lever to lock. I did not take the lever itself apart. Im thinking I have the cog wheels in the wrong tooth groove, it's all I can think of. Any ideas?

It does close with a good strong action and the trigger does fire as well. But, it takes some effort to close the lever the last 1/4 inch.
Was just cycling the action after putting it together.
Thank you Marlin 92, your picture and advice fixed it immediately. It cycles smoothly and chambers a cartridge without any issues now. Will update once I hit the range over the next few days.
