    That's the one I meant I would like to have...the single shot.

    All I can say is Wow! - especially the biathlon rifle. Those are not often seen, to say the least.

    Is that a custom stock on the gun in the foreground? It's a classic style, not a Monte Carlo, and I don't see any checkering. Beautiful wood. Also some nice wood on the .22 just in front of the .22 Hornet.

    the one just below the hornet does have nice wood. it came from a friend of mine who bought it new.
    the bottom one is all original. https://sakocollectors.com/forum/threads/sako-p72-in-22-wmr.13384/
    had a few more but had moments of weakness
