    Default How about a thread on SAKO stamped parts

    We've all seen the barrel stamps, how about everything else:

    By the by, SAKO and VKT are both acronyms.

    SAKO: Suojeluskuntain Ase-ja Konepaja Osakeyhtiö
    VKT: Valtion Kirvaaritehdas

    I did not know either & several years ago when I bought this rifle, I was astonished to find the bolthead was V.K.T. manufactured.

    Pahtu.

    Pahtu, that's really remarkable. I have not seen a VKT bolt-head before. Thanks for sharing.
    Nothing worthwhile ever comes easily.

    I like SAKOs, and some of my rifles have SAKO marked parts. Most interestin' part on several Finns, a cocking knob with the last four numbers of the rifle's serial number. Obviously done by the Finns, well done. It's a M28 rifle. Will go in and check the rifle.

    SAKO stamped stock with rifle serial stamped on the end of the stock - Not something really special, but not seen all that often either.

    Rifle no longer in my possession - Another firearm I bought that is now worth much more than I paid & I no longer own....
