I can't remember if I ever shot this work of art. My father shot two box's in 1968 and then put in the safe. Being just 10 years old in 1968 I was not to touch those Sako's. He never took it out to shoot just every so many years would wipe it down. He passed 10 years ago this year and I inherited 3 Sako's all purchased in the 1960's. This Finnwolf, Finnbear, and heavy barrel L461 in 222 rem. I hunted with the Finnbear 4 years ago and just took the 222 L461 out and cleaned it. Going to take out the L461 and shoot it this spring because I never shot that either back in 1968. All three have the same stock color, engraving, and finish. Thinking about selling the Finnwolf. To hard to take out into the field and use. It is just a great piece of art.
