    Hey all,
    I just bought a sako 75 deluxe. The factory irons were pulled an i was wondering if anyone knew the screw demensions for the plugs. I would assume they are machine thread, but want to make sure.
    Thanks in advance,
    Mitch

    Welcome aboard Mitch! You’ll find some experienced SAKO folks on this board. My recommendation for you regarding “irons plugs” is to contact:

    Sakosource.com.

    They advertise on the banner ads on this board. I picked up original Sako scope mounts from Sakosource - excellent service

    I'm not all that familiar with the Model 75 Deluxe, but I doubt that it came with factory sights. If that is the case, then the sight holes would have been D&T by a gunsmith and would be whatever size and thread he used, typically a 6x42 (?) I think. Check a gunsmith supply like Brownell's to see what they offer.

    If it was D&T'd by a smith here in the states it's probably has 6x48 screw threads. Some sights came with 6x40 & a very few with 8x40. Most any smith will have all these in stock & it's a simple matter to check what there are.

    The deluxe model iron sights were an option. The previous owner of the rifle removed them to put on a cheap scope. I found brownells catalogs factory open sights and I think I'll go that route. I think cosmeticaly a 375 h&h needs some iron the barrel
