Howdy - I have read a bunch of stuff on Bofors and Garcia, but what if my Sako L579 .308 Forester Deluxe was purchased in 1972 in England? It has the fancy light wood Monte Carlo stock and the impala floor plate. No Bofors stamp, but it was not imported to the US until after it was purchased (by my Pops). I have never seen a .308 with the impala floor plate. It does not seem fair to call it a pre or post Garcia since it was not "imported" to the US before it was purchased. I am curious as to any insight that the members here may have on this particular rifle. Pops still hunts with it. It is a fantastic weapon! Thanks for looking!
