  • Where can I buy a Sako action?

    I need a Sako action,well only the bolt for my L461 in .308 win.I might as well look for a complete action as finding a bolt on its own would be like looking for Rocking Horse sh#t.Any leads are appriciated,hope you had a great weekend!

    Just about any gunsmith should be able to get one for you, wildwest guns can get you one or somewhere like auction arms you can find them every now and then.

      The Sako L461 action is for 222 Remington, and such, calibers. The L57 or L579 or A-II is the action for the 308, 243, 7-08, etc. Make sure you get the right bolt.

      I disagree with the notion that Sako actions can be found easily. They are more like chicken lips, just not a lot of them to be had. I buy ALL that I can find of the A-II's, A-III's, and A-V's and there isn't a lot available.

      Now as for a bolt, only the L461 bolt will fit, or if L579, ditto. You might find one. There is a collector in Whiite Water, KS. by the name of Jim Lutes and he has parts for sale from time to time. I don't have a number but area code is 316. You might try to find him.

      How is it you came to own an L461 without a bolt and also why would it have a 308 (stamped) barrel on it? Could you check this and get back to me, I'm curious. I thought I knew something about Sako rifles. Good shootin'.

      Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

            I know this is an old thread, but...

            Searching for a bolt for a Montgomery Wards marketed Sako L57 in .308. Problem is that someone has buffed/ground the inside lug on the bolt, and if just the right pressure is applied, the lug drops into the magazine while retracting the bolt, locking the action up....very frustrating, and I thought about finding someone to build that surface up with weld, then figured it'd be better to find a replacement bolt than screw around with welding on a critical part.
            I also saw that Murphy mentioned a fella by the name of Lutes in Kansas. I happened across this information for him.....

                    I wonder if Jerr saw the classified section on here and read the rules that apply.
