    By way of introduction I am a native born Coloradan. Born and raised in the south east corner of the state. ( epicenter of the Dust Bowl of the 30's). My interest have always been hunting and shooting. I bought my first bicycle with money made from shooting jack rabbits and selling them to the fur and meat processors.
    I bought my first Sako , a L461 Vixen Deluxe chambered in 222 Remington, a couple years ago. It is too pretty to hunt but it does shoot very well. I will have some questions on Sako rifles as I have plans to purchase more.

    Hey, Lynn! Welcome to the forum. Fairly new here, myself. I think you'll find the site to be extremely informative and a fun place to learn about these fine firearms.

    Do you have any photos, by chance, of your Deluxe Vixen? Members love to see pictures!

    I have an L461 full Mannlicher stock .222 Rem and an L46 Heavy Barrel version (with a custom aftermarket stock), also chambered in .222 Rem. They're two of my favorites, although I'd love to have one of the Deluxe versions.

    No such thing as too pretty to hunt. This deluxe has been all over the place and killed tons of game. It still looks great...

    It definitely looks good in that setting! A caribou hunt is on my list.

    Thanks for the welcome. I have pictures and will post as soon as I figure out the process.
