Serial number puts production circa late 1970’s through to very early 80’s so 40 plus years old. As such a REMARKABLE example of one of these GREAT older Sako Rifles. Its also quite a STUNNER with SUPERB Grain Pattern. The only ‘trouble’ is the Walnut is that dark its seriously difficult to capture with anything but the naked eye. I have tried and it took more than long enough to get these so enjoy.
All Original Plain and unsighted / none screw cut 23” (585mm) Sporting weight barrel. Pull is 13 9/16” (345mm). Bringing in a combined O/A length of 42 ½” and tipping scales bare as pictured at 7 ½ Lbs Dead. (3.4 Kg).
A TRULY CLASSIC and ICONIC reasonably early Sako. From a time many consider part of their ‘Golden Eras’ of production. This appears to be almost as new and original condition. The only real sign of any age (not particularly ware) is on the actual bolt knob. That shows a little very mild rubbing of the original blued finish. That’s about it by way of any detrimental detail.
Standard Hinged Floor Plate Magazine so impossible to lose.
YES, a ‘good’ price for an old rifle. BUT this is going to shoot every bit as good as brand new. Plus, for those who know what older examples are actually like, YOU will appreciate it’s a realistic asking price for such an iconic piece.
