    You have a Sako Hi-Power. It was Sako's long action offered in the 1950's built on the FN Mauser action before the introduction of Sako's own long action L61R in 1961. Looks like yours has the Mauser wing safety on the rear of the bolt, which indicates it's an early model as the later ones used the Sako #4 trigger with it's integral safety. IIRC, serial numbers started with 100,000 & all the ones I've seen are within the 100,000 range. Not sure if the double set triggers & the ebony forearm tip were Sako factory items or added later. They are very nice, quality built hunting rifles & your's should serve you well. Thanks for sharing the pics!
