A friend has a Sako Finnbear in 264 Magum he wants to sell. I think it looks great, but he is asking $1500 for it. The serial number is 42407. From what I could find on the internet, the L61R serial numbers went up to almost 91000 between 1961 and 1973. So I would guess about 1967? I don't know anything about the finer points of Sako's so I am posting a picture or two for some advice. http:// http:// http:// I appreciate and thank everyone for their input ahead of time.
