My house gun with some friends.
Really like that rifle pic on the log with the bag. Details? I see its wearing a nightforce. Whats the rifle and scope?
I like yout collection. I recognize the 870, a Marlin 60, a few Ruger 10/22s, and a Winchester and Marlin lever gun. How far off am I? Whats the complete list?
Thanks Troutster! It's a Sako 85 "Bavarian", in 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser. My favorite caliber, and by far the most accurate rifle I've ever fired. There are a whole slew of Sako 85 models, and the Bavarian has the European style comb, longer pistol grip cap, and Schnabel forend. The Nightforce is the 2.5-10x42, and the rings/ bases are Sako proprietary (but extremely well designed).
Great! Thanks! A fine rifle no doubt, my look, feel, and precision. Hows a Sako 85 trigger? I have been really impressed with the Tikka triggers and I know that is a lesser rifle than your Sako.
Value-wise, the Tikka is every bit the Sako's equal, and honestly probably superior. As far as I know, Tikka use Sako barrels, and are the best bang for the buck in bolt action rifles. I don't own a Tikka, but I've fired my buddy's in 308, and it's every bit the tack driver my Sako is.
As for the trigger, the Sako 85 really shines. It has a set trigger that has spoiled me rotten. A regular pull is extremely crisp, and probably about 3.5lbs (I'm purely guessing). But if you set the trigger by pushing it forward first, it becomes about 1.5lbs, and like breaking glass. Unlike any trigger I've ever tried before or since.
Everything about the Sako 85 just screams "quality" to me. It's solid, without being heavy, the bluing and wood are gorgeous, and the action is slick as snot. I mentioned the rings and bases earlier, and it's just another example of design quality: The integral bases on the receiver get wider towards the muzzle, so during recoil, the scope mounts actually tighten down onto the receiver. At first I was unsure of having a proprietary base instead of picatinny, but once I saw the design, I think it's far superior. And the rings use polymer inserts, so there are no truing issues. Forgive me for sounding like a salesman for Sako, I'm just very satisfied with my purchase. They cost a pretty penny, but are every bit worth it in my opinion.
I'll be the first to admit that I'm nothing to write home about in terms of marksmanship, but the Sako makes me look good.
You're pretty much right on except the only Marlin is the model 60.
The lever guns are a Browning lightweight 7mm-08,a winchester model 92 in 32-20 and a 9417 17hmr Winchester.
There's 4 10/22s
Remington 700 25-06
Stevens shotgun and 22
A couple 22 revolvers
A Stevens single shot
A Remington bolt action 22 magnum
I have a few that arent in that pic. Mostly semi auto pistols.
There's also a Mossberg 500 that I Just swapped the stock on.
aired out couple w. germans at range yesterday...

My AR and HK - and my brother's Glock to the far left:
Colt 1911 circa 75-76...on it second Barsto Match barrel..notice the S&W K-frame rear sight milled into the slide...not a lot of choices for adjustable sights back then...have a lot of other pistols, but if I had to step outside and shoot at someone...this is what I would bring.

M1 Carbine for My Pop
My correct 1943 Winchester M1 Carbine I gifted to my father in law.
Retired USMC Mstr Gunnery Sgt
Great-looking M1 Carbine. An aquaintance of mine has a rare, period correct Rock-Ola one!
Yep ... the M1 Carbine is a great gun. The Winchester, (shown in oak display case), that I gave my Father in law, is 100% correct except for the adjustable rear sight. I have the original Winchester 100/200 yard two-aperture flip "L" sights in my safe.
The M1 in the lower photo is my correct Inland set up with adjustable rear "Inland" sight as well.
