    This past winter I have bought a number of rare Sakos, this being one of them. Not only is the bolt swept back, but the machining marks in the top of the rear of the bolt are the first I have seen this. This is an early 579 in 244 Remington...

    Yes, the longitudinal grooves in the place of checkering on the bolt shroud is frequently found on the earliest L579's. It is usually found combined with the half-moon floorplate release inside the trigger guard. Have you checked inside to see if it also has the one-piece bottom metal/magazine box? I regard these early ones as real prizes when you can find them.

    Yes on the half-moon release. The bottom of the bolt is also flattened and checkered. This gun was unfired when I got it.
