Another thread a couple of days ago brought up the issue of which Sako actions and calibers are most in demand (and thus bring a premium in the market) and which are less sought after (and thus are slower movers or bring a bit less). Lots of factors go into these price variations such as country, location within a country, relative scarcity, and simple fads. Opinions and perspective certainly vary, and it is unusual for any two of us to independently put exactly the same price or premium on a given rifle. That doesn't mean that one of us is "wrong" and the other is "right", it simply means that we have different opinions that are perhaps based on different priorities or information. I might be "right" about the sale of an L61R .30-06 in the morning, and "wrong" about the next sale that same afternoon -- every sale is, to some degree, unique. To start the discussion (and not to generate an argument), I'm going to list my perception of how values Sakos of the later L-series from 1960 to 1971 (61R, 579, 461) are impacted by caliber chambering. This is for unmodified rifles in very good or better condition, and it is based primarily on how common or how scarce a caliber is, as well as how popular it is in the current shooting climate. L61R, lowest to highest: .30-06 7mm Rem .270 Win .300 Win Mag .338 Win Mag .375 H&H Mag .25-06 Rem .264 Win Mag .300 H&H .458 Win (Not listed because they were never imported to the U.S. are the 7x57, 8x57, 7x64, and any other limited or special runs.) L579, lowest to highest: .243 Win .308 Win .22-250 Rem .244 Rem L461, lowest to highest: .222 .222 Mag .223 I'd invite anyone who wishes to revise this order of calibers according to your own opinion. No "right" or "wrong", just what you think. Also, if you wish to use the least valuable caliber as "100%" and rank each more valuable caliber as a percentage of the base caliber, that would also be an interesting exercise. The same thing can be done for later or earlier Sako models, but remember, we're just talking about the 1960-71 L-series right now. Calibers that were added after 1971 or to the A or later series don't count right now. I'll look forward to your comments!
