Nice Sako and very interesting buttstock. Did you shoot it w/ the bayonet? Some do, at our weekly milsurp SAT shoots, although 2 of the 5 have been canceled so far due to being “too cold” out ... 🤪 now try telling that to Simo Hayha, LOL!

Thanks for your service!

I did not shoot with the bayonet affixed. I was worried it would throw off my accuracy during the bench rest portion of the competition. However, seeing as how I am in dead last place... I seem to have the ability to throw my accuracy off all by myself! lol As far as the weather being "too cold" that is prime shooting time for any Finnish Mosin Nagant rifle! And lastly, thank you for your support my friend. That was a very nice thing to write and I most certainly appreciate it.
