Check out this Sako Mannlicher on the Griffin and Howe site: http://secure.griffinhowe.com/riflemoreinfo.cfm (click on "used rifles" then scroll down to the Sakos in alphbetical order) I was unaware that Sako produced any long-barreled full stocks after the L-series (and precious few of them in the L461/579 actions.) This one appears, with its shrouded bolt, to be an A-II. Also, the seller's stock number, which appears to be the gun's serial number (with a digit added) is consistent with the A-II series. The gun is lacking a front sight (which would be rare in a Mannlicher), but it is impossible to tell if it never had one or if it has been removed. Also, the fore wood doesn't quite match the stock wood, and it has a rear fixed sling swivel, which is inconsistent with an A-II. I'm curious if this is a "bitsa" as our Aussie friends would say, that is, a put-together rifle? What say ye?
