• 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

Hi I have two nice Sako Forester L579's, one in 308 and the other in 243. I have the boxes for both and the 243 is new in the box in 100% condition. I would like to scope and use the 308 as it has evidence that it's seen the woods before. I would like to use a small scope like a Leupold 1-5x20 can someone recommend the best steel base and ring combination? I prefer Warne steel bases and rings normally but I know this rifle is special. Thanks and I look forward to learning the history of these beautiful rifles.

Vintage used Sako one piece ringmounts (not made anymore) or the Leupold one piece ringmounts that clamp directly to the Sako action dovetails are your best option. If you are not familiar with the Sako dovetail scope mounting system, peruse the forum for info & pics. Redfield & others made bases that you drive onto the dovetails that use the conventional turn-in rings that will work as well.
