    Hey guys!
    I came across this pin quite awhile ago at a gun show. Does anyone know anything about it at all? Can’t seem to find any info at all about this piece! Any input would be appreciated :)
    Thanks again guys!

    The old Sako Collectors Association had any number of items (pins, stickers, patches) made up for its members. Mims Reed, who ramrodded the old Association, was kind enough to give me a pin like the one in the photo. The SCA even worked up a trip to Finland for its members and I think about a dozen or so went and were hosted in grand style by Sako. The Association eventually died away due to the difficulty of communicating solely by snail mail and someone having to take on the chore of turning out and mailing a newsletter every month.

    Our Sako Collectors Club president, Jim Staf, started this new club first as an online chat room which, through his hard work and dedication, eventually became a full website/forum with free membership and thousands of members signed up around the world.
