    Looking for a good photo of the magazine retaining spring and or mag release, have a rifle coming in with one broken and or gone. A close up pic of one either in a rifle or as the part alone. Some dimensions would be even better but I'd settle for good pics. Thanks!

    Hello Deer Sako. Can you tell me if the upper leg of the magazine release spring on the Sako 78 actually goes on the forward side of the roll pin in the release lever as opposed to the back side as shown in your photo? Thank you.

    I broke mine about 20 years ago. It took me a while to figure out what it should look like. According to my records I have put over 20,000 rds thru my 78. It has killed 3 types of ground squirrels as well as Jack Rabbits, Marmots and some squirrels.
