    I’m pretty new to Sakos. I was just given a L461 in .222 that spent 90% of its life in storage. It’s a really sweet gun. As far as he knows, there’s only been about 50 rounds shot through it and as far as I can tell, it’s in really great shape. I’m just looking for some info on it, maybe a year it was built and a rough value. Thank you.

    Its configuration and serial number are consistent with the late 1970's just prior to when Sako re-labeled the L461 as the A-I. It should be a great shooter. I've never seen a Sako .222 that wasn't knife-edge accurate. I see it has a Leupold scope mounted in factory Sako rings. Can't do much better than that.

    Looks like a nice one. I'd say it was your lucky day.
