OK, Before you guys all start to roll your eyes and shake your heads at a question I am sure you have heard on here a thousand times, I am trying to sell this rifle for the widow of one of my shooting pals that passed away last fall. I would like to get her a fair price and figured you guys would know.
From what I could gather by reading a few of the older post on here, what she has is a Sako/ Garcia Import, L61r Finnbear .375 H&H.
One of my question is on the stock. I read last night in one of the threads that Sako installed that dowel in the wrist as another recoil lug. When I first saw the rifle I "assumed" , yes I know what that means, that the stock had an internal crack in it and it had been repaired. Even said I wanted to meet the guy that did it because it looked so good.DUH!
Is this one of the Model 72's that I was reading about? The dovetail bases are smooth. There is no black pistol grip cap. The checkering is a two point style on both the wrist and the forearm.Did they come with studs for the swivels?
If someone would be so kind and take a look at the pics in my photobucket album and let me know what it is and what I should ask for it I would appreciate it. Ballpark numbers are just fine. I know what the scope is worth but the rifle has me a little stumped. I am not trying to ring every penny out of it, but I don't want to sell it and not get her what it is worth either.
Thanks, Tom (AJ100)
