.220 ‘Russian’. This is on an A1 action so dated 1979 / 80 !
Doing a little research Sako do not actually list this as a standard caliber in any of the models either before or after so it would appear to be a ‘ONE OFF’ rifle made specially at the time.
Barrel is an original and stamped SAKO Cal.220 to the top with .220 RUS to the left side and Made in Finland etc.
AS SUCH CERTAINLY A COLLECTORS PIECE. ( I dont mind if this doesnt sell as Ime happy to keep a 1 off for my own ‘ collection ‘ ! )
In EXCELLENT condition considering its age, showing light use but still retaining great colour to the metal work and little signs of much to the woodwork either.
I do keep turning these rifles up !… and this is certainly a ‘KEEPER’.
