    The one in the photos is what I call a BMW, meaning "been messed with".
    It looks as if the sling attachment swivel in the rear is original,
    however the front has been replaced with a stud.
    The butt pad is a replacement and not original and
    there has been an attempt to "bed the action" as evidenced by the bedding compound.
    The fact that it has the contrasting fore end tip and skip line checkering marks it as having been a Deluxe.
    Now it is a BMW.

    The pre garcia Sako has a smaller diameter barrel, hence the true indicator will be the diameter of the barrel channel.
    It appears the recoil lug is the same type found on the pre garcia guns. However the recoil lug can be easily changed.
    I always shy away from any stock that has been glassed.
    Now if the seller offers returns, you have nothing to lose, except your gun will now have the horrible looking recoil pad.

    Well . . . it all depends on your judgment. The Deluxe has a silver inlayed floor plate that runs around $350.00 . . . if you can find one. So . . . your gun with the Deluxe stock will be lacking the proper floor plate. And if and when . . . it comes up for sale, all Deluxe buyers will be offended because it has the wrong floor plate.

    hello enotstehw I am from Argentina. I want to ask you about the bolt (bolt) of the Sako L61R rifle that you put on sale. It is important to know the caliber of the rifle. If it's still available, I'd like to see more pictures to see if they match the model of my rifle. I would like you to reply me quickly so that I can confirm or not the purchase
    Thank you and greetings from Buenos Aires
