1. 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

    Over the last 65 Yrs I have encountered 8 different finishes while refurbishing Sakos. Only one of those could be reliably touched up without a complete redo. That was on a rifle from around 1950. If it has been refinished before then you have a chance but it is still touch and go.

    The Deluxe typically had a gloss finish. Not sure of the chemical composition, but if a blemish is small just a dab of Birchwood Casey TruOil rubbed over with the finger tip will blend nicely. It may still be detectable, but is much better than leaving a blemish as-is or going to the difficulty and expense of fully refinishing the stock (which doesn't always turn out to be satisfactory, depending on who does the work.)
