Every Sako rifle I have owned or had the opportunity to shoot had a certain "MOJO" about it and I never shot one that wasn't what you'd call "above average" as far as accuracy is concerned. I also have two Valmet 412 combination guns made in Finnland and both of them are the same way. They are surperbly accurate with the rifle barrels and the shotgun barrels hold excellent patterns. So it seems the Finns know something about gun making that some other makers do not know. So my question to you boys is simply this: What is it that makes Sako's so dang special? Why do people who know rifles love Sako's? I bought my first Chevy pickup in 1961 and drove several different ones until the rear end fell out of one that I just bought in 1976 and only had 4800 mles on it. I have driven Toyota trucks since 1976 and have always paid a premium price for them over what I can pay for domestic made trucks. My brothers are all Chevy men as I was before driving my first Toyota. They ask me when am I going to go back to Chevy and I tell them the truth. As soon as Chevy builds a truck as good as my 5.7 liter, V-8, 381 horse power, 4-WD Toyota Tundra truck, THEN I"LL BUY A Chevy, but not until then. I am the same way about Sako rifles. I always have to pay a premium for them, but think they are worth it. Am I right about that and if so, why am I right about it? And conversly, if I'm wrong, tell me why.
