    Hello all,

    I just bought a .308 L579 with a Beretta Import Stamp. It is a 5 digit serial number #33xxx which in Sako's serial number listing on their website would have been manufactured before 1973. I am confused as with my limited knowledge I thought Beretta started importing Sako well after they stopped producing that action.


    Anyone know what this is?

    If the stamp is on the barrel, my "guess" would be that it is a L579 action that was rebarreled with a barrel from a newer model Sako. A pic would be helpful in determining what you have.

    Welcome to the forum. Whenever you ask questions please be sure to provide pics of the rifle you are asking about. We always encourage our first time members to post pics of their Sakos any way for all to enjoy. Some do and some don't but it usually boils down to providing enough info including pics if you want a meaningful answer to your question.

    I believe paulson is correct looks like a re-barrel
