Hello! I'm not a Sako collector, but I do admire the quality of the Sako I just inherited. The reason I'm here is to learn more about this rifle. Despite a lot of Googling and comparing photos, I just can't find a match. The receiver has none of the required markings (manufacturer, importer, model, or serial number), telling me that this was both manufactured and imported before the GCA '68. Just forward of the receiver on the barrel is SAKO and 1072xx (serial number). Just opposite on the right side is MADE IN FINLAND. The chambering is 30-06, which is indicated on the top of the barrel close to the receiver. The buttplate has a machine gear logo with a S in the center and S A K O above that. There is one proof mark on the bolt handle and two on the left side of the barrel, forward of the SAKO and serial number. I believe that there was a front sight hood and that it is missing, probably removed to accommodate the Weaver (K4 60-B) scope. Can anybody identify this Sako? Thank you very much!
