In 1988 I bought a new Sako A-1 single shot bolt action, in 22PPC USA calibre. I had problems right from the start. Using Sako 22PPC USA factory ammunition extraction was very difficult. The shop where I bought the rifle was owned/operated by a gunsmith; I took it back and got him to fix it. He improved it some, but extraction is still difficult. I only fired the rifle a limited amount (factory ammo and reloads) and then stopped shooting it altogether. I'd like to start shooting this rifle again but I want to get it fixed properly. I'm curious to know if anyone else has had similar problems with this rifle, or did I just get a lemon?
