    Just thought I'd post a couple of pictures of the Sako and M44 that I picked up in Indiana.

    You do on the bottom one but it is mine and some Finns on the Sako. Cartouche is prominent in the stock, used a little Murphys and a couple of coats of oil. Mike did a fien job on the 44. AND HOW DARE YOU insult my firearms as prybars !

    Heck - I sold Mikie one of them ol' prybars hanging on the wall in his bedroom!

    He did do a nice job on the M44.

    I have one of them Sako 39s that looks like it has a naval crest on the stock.

    (Sigh!)

    If you don't want to use 'em as pry bars, perhaps as barn door wedges would be an appropiate suggestion?

    Hey Ben, The sling on the Sako looks like it's inside out...the buckle should be on the outside so it doesn't bang on and scratch the wood...

    Didja check to see what the date said on the bottom of the tang when you had it apart?

    The VKT was a 1905 Tula...

    And your pics sure come out better than mine...BUT....


    I believe I'm getting issued a nice digital camera for my new job, so watch out!





    It's nice to see one of my babies get adopted into a nice home....

    And Bob? You sold me TWO of the prybars on the wall...

    The 53 is on the very bottom of the special 44 display on the other wall...Russky, Pole, Hunky, Romanian, Chinese "keepers..." in that order...

    (Still need a 43 Tula and an EG though.... )

    Mike I thought the same myself about the buckle on the sling. I unscrewed the butt sling bracket when I was reoiling the stock., good eyes!
