Scrolled down to the pics. HOLY S___!!!!!!!

And a Sako, of all things. Not exactly the Bryco/Jennings of the rifle world.

Shooting buddy of mine is missing a hand from a rifle that blew up when he was a teenager.

Yikes, that's some scary stuff.

As smeg mentioned we are not talking about a cheap low quality rifle here.
Sako is considered one of the premier brands.

Thankfully I can?t afford a Sako rifle, I love stainless steel and would buy a gun like this. I can?t see that this is from excessive pressure, the brass is split but doesn?t show the usual flowing look to it. Brass will usually have a look as if it turned to a liquid when the pressure is high enough to destroy a gun. I think it was at DSA Inc. that I saw a good example of excessive pressure, it showed how the brass flowed back into and around the bolt head and so on. I think because Sako is recalling the rifles by serial number and model, they know it?s something in manufacturing and not the use of the gun that caused this to happen.I hope these guy?s will be OK and that it won?t stop them from enjoying shooting again.
