    G'day guys.
    Thought I'd introduce my self. I have purchased a brand new, second-hand, forester and can't wait to get it out of lockup. If you're not familiar with Australian gun laws, we have to apply to purchase and own each rifle we want. What is it? Well, I believe it's an older sporter L579 in 308. Interestingly it has front sight, minus the hood, ladder style barrel mounted rear sight incidents to 300 yard or meters? and a Sako peep. The stock has seen better days, but a beautiful blond girl she is. Action silky smooth and she's beautiful to boot. Welcome home love and thanks for having us fellas and sheilas. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    welcome. plenty of aussie sako collectors & users here.
    not seen an L 579 here in aust with with that style of rear site. couple of photos would be great.
    if you go to the factory records section on here for a few dollars & your rifles ser no will give you a date your rifle left the factory.

    I rode a few in my teenage years. I stayed on real well until someone opened the gate and let him out of the chute. I just do the roping events now
