    Don't know if this is true, but I have no reason to doubt the poster.

    From a Finn on another board:
    If I owned one, I'd be contacting Sako directly and finding out if there is a recall.

    Sako, Tikka recall

    There seems to be some confusion about this recall.

    I blame Sako and Berretta for not making it much more public. :fire:

    Berretta has issued a recall on a run of stainless barrels used on both Sako and Tikka rifles. This recall pertains to a number of different calibers and is not limited to just fluted barrels as I have seen suggested from time to time.

    If you have a Sako or Tikka rifle with a stainless barrell that was produced recently you should contact Berretta imediately to see if it was affected by the recall.

    Note: The last time that I was on Berretta's web site the recall was not even posted, you have to talk to a customer service rep to get the phone number for the recall center. The phone # is 800-503-8869 or [email protected] don't expect a quick reply, it seems to take them a few days to get around to it.

    If your rifle is a recall item they will send you a box and the paperwork to return it to the recall center, with a promise to replace your rifle. What they may not tell you is that they are out of stock in many calibers and it could be quite sometime before you see that replacement. :banghead:

    I recomend getting all the facts you can from them and documenting any phone conversations.

    Sincerely,

    Bernie

    This has been discussed on this and other websites . YES, there is a recall , however Beretta has done nothing to tell people about it . If you have purchased a STAINLESS STEEL SAKO or TIKKA in 2004 call Beretta and ask if your serial number is on the recall list. There have been at least 6 rifles that have blown up and injured the shooters....Beretta has been totally irresponsible with this recall.
