    I just pick up a colt deluxe coltsman made by sako. 30/06 with l61r action. I didn't know colt imported sako. Any info on these guns? Are they as collectable and of as high a quality as the other sako's?

    Hi Rick, Very nice find! The Coltsman was manufactured
    for Colt by Kodiak Arms. They uses Mauser and Sako
    action. The book's said 10,000 manufactured between
    1958 and 1966. "Great gun", only saw one other like
    it.
    A $1000-$1400 Gun. You lucky dog! Enjoy, Reno G.

    I purchased one in .308 about four years ago. The round top seem to confuse most of the dealers in my area because getting scope bases to fit were difficult. The bases for a Browning Safari grade (Sako version) did not fit just right. Talley Mfg. has the only base that fit it perfectly without shims; the way it should be. Just in case you hit the same problem.
