    I wonder if the club has the factory records for these ?
    I’m no expert, but I feel the earlier ones such as yours weren’t dovetailed, I have one similar.
    Later serial numbers I have are dovetailed and also lost the P54 stamp on the top of the receiver.

    You seem to no a little about them mate, when you say early roughly what year are we talking ?


    I'm wondering if I should sell it or stash it away in the safe for awhile.

    They were manufactured from 1954, hence the ‘P54’ model designation, up until 1972 when the new model P72 was released.
    Scratchy records indicate approximately 24,000 rifles were made starting with serial number 20001. This information is from Sakos old model database which, as has been discussed many times here, is only indicative at best.
    If you don’t ever plan on shooting it in the hope it will appreciate in value, don’t hold your breath. Great little rifles, don’t get me wrong, they just don’t seem to attract a lot of collector interest like their centerfire counterparts.
