    Default Sako Black Bear rifle in 9.3x62

    finally got my sako black bear in 9.3x62 today. it is very light at 7lbs and has a short 21 1/4 inch barrel, which i like. it takes 5 rnds in the mag and one in the chamber.it has a detachable mag but can also be loaded from the top as well. it comes up very nicely with the sights perfectly aligned for me. its heading rapidly up the list of favourite toys the more i check it out IMG00593-20130702-1510.jpgIMG00598-20130702-1513.jpgIMG00599-20130702-1513.jpgIMG00603-20130702-1516.jpgIMG00605-20130702-1517.jpg
