    Hey all, greetings from the great and beautiful Olympic Peninsula. How does anyone choose a favorite SAKO?
    Each and every one is a work of fine craftsmanship, smooth as silk, and nice to know if you do your part they are more accurate than most any other rifle on the market.

    Welcome David for me it boils down to the memories that were created when using a particilar gun and very little to do with the looks or monetary value.

    Welcome to the club David.
    You’re right, each one deserves some adoration. I imagine it’s easier to choose a favorite Brand. Sako has been mine. It’s all I own! I think, if I had to pick one … it would be my Deluxes!:D

    When it comes to accuracy, vintage Sako rifles make doing my part so much easier!

    Hi Wayne,
    We have Elk, black tail deer, black bear, cougar, and coyote for varmint, these are the primary game. Occasionally there is a draw for mountain goat. We also have some great waterfowl hunting and for the fishing, some world class stealheading, salmon, halibut, and in the summer you can chase albacore tuna when they come close on-shore. I bought my first SAKO in 1976, a blond L61R chambered in 30-06, it was stolen out of my car at the start of deer season my senior year in high school, since then I have nine in my collection. I keep thinking if I have to ever get rid of any of my SAKO's which one would go first....man, that's like selling one of your kids.

    Hey Hippie, (great handle) Yes the deluxes are pieces of art. I also like my Bavarian 85M, and my TRG, also have a L61Rchambered in 270 pre-Garcia that has never been fired with the original box. Box is pretty beat up, but the rifle is pristine.
    Thanks for the warm welcome - regards,
    Dave
