    I love my Finnbear Deluxe in 6.5 x 55, and would like to find one NIB or as new for my son. I’d give him mine, but it is a LH bolt. I’d probably get him a 270 or 30-06. We both have many guns, but I want him to have something that is not just superbly accurate, but beautiful also. Any suggestions?

    Hi and welcome. There is a deluxe on GB in 270. $1295 but it looks really good.

    Is your emphasis on caliber (6.5x55) or on having a Deluxe grade or on having a gun NIB? A 6.5x55 is hard to find in a Sako, and very hard to find in a Sako Deluxe. Nearly impossible to find in Deluxe. (This discounts the current production of Sakos and applies only to the Finnbears.)

    If you are most interested in caliber and a standard grade Finnbear will do, then check with Rodger at SakoSource.com around the end of the week. He told me he has a 6.5x55 on the way in. It is a standard Finnbear.

    There is a Sako Forester Deluxe, .243 cal. bolt action rifle, 23” barrel, Redfield scope on GunRunner Auction as we speak. This rifle looks great and my experience tells me that it will sell below market. If you want a great rifle at a fair price I would go there and register. I have purchased several fine Sako rifles from this auction site and can't say enough good things about them. Buyers premium is only 10%.

    Good Luck
