Sako L461 barreld action weight?
Does anybody know the weight of a Sako L461 barreld action?

Either in Hunter and Varmint configuration?

I will weigh mine in the morning and let you know.

There are many variations in the weights of Sako L461 barrelled actions......depending on rifle manufacturer, model, and era in which it was produced.

Do you have a specific weight range that you are looking for?

Sako Action
A SAKO vixen barrelled action complete with bottom metal and stock removed should be 5.6 Lbs. Hope this helps.

Pete: Is that a Varmint configuration? Or do you mean 5lbs and 6 ounces?

My BRNO ZG-47 barreld action in 30-06 weighs 5,5 lbs.

Kevin: I was just figuring out if I should make a "ultralight" hunter on a Vixen in either Hunter or Varmint configuration, or go with something like a Tikka T3, which can be made pretty darn light.

They can be made very light, or as heavy as you like.

I've an O'Brien rifle, in which the entire rifle weighs 5 pounds. Then there's the 17-222 PD rifle I built, that weighs "somewhat" more.


The 17-222

My apologies Northman, our scales have to modes, Metric and Imperial. I thought it was set for metric so hit the mode button to change to imperial for you but the wife must have been using it on imperial so all I said before was incorrect. So I start again :rolleyes:

A bare Sako Hunter Vixen should weigh 5 lb 12 ozs minus the stock which is 2 lbs so a bare barrelled action should weigh 3 lb 12 ozs.

A bare Sako Varmint according to my data is 8 lb 12 ozs but I do not have a varmint stock to weigh, but the hunter and varmint stock are both the same except for the beaver forend on the varmint.

Some examples of what a couple of my Sako's weigh

Sako 223, SS 26" barrel, Leupold Vari-x III AO scope and Hilver steel mounts = 8 lbs 8 ozs.

Sako 17 Rem Hunter, factory barrel, Hilver steel mounts, Kahles 8x56 steel scope = 8 lbs 3 ozs.

Hope this is useful for you
