OK so if im supposed to be posting this somewhere else please let me know. I contacted the Record keepers and here's what the information they gave me. option 1. L579 in .243 - 1965 NICE!! option 1. L46 in .222 sporter stock - 1960 SWEET!! option 2. L46 in .222 Mannlicher stock - 1955 also KILLER!! Along with the date of man for the Mannlicher stock they shared this little tidbit. This 'rifle' was sold as an action only. And being Sako only keeps shipping records of complete rifles, that's all the info they could give me. They did refund half the cost by the way. Customer service at its best. That being said Im not sure how i feel about this. On the one hand I am disappointed because I am thinking I have a basically original rifle. but i dont guess i do. On the other hand Im really intrigued as to what it is i actually have. The gentlemen at Sako records suggested posting pics and getting opinions on whether it's a custom or a proprietary rifle on a Sako action. Anyone out there want to throw in their .02?? Anything would be appreciated.
