    I have a Sako Deluxe Special as it is stamped. It has the round top receiver that is high blue polished and with the top being Matte finish. So I would say that Sako made the high gloss and matte top finish since Colt had nothing to do with this rifle.

    Thanks for the input, Rocky! So, douglastwo has seen round top Coltsman glossy tops, others have matte tops, & then the traditional Sako dovetail actions. Could your Sako "Deluxe Special" with the matte top possibly be an action initially made for Colt that didn't get used for a Coltsman??? Seems the more we learn the more questions pop up. If it was done at the Sako factory, I just have to wonder why????

    Yes Paul, I believe that it was parts left over from the Coltman's rifles. But thats just my thoughts. It just doesn't have markings anywhere showing that its a Colt.

    Ice, I'll have to dig it out and get some photo's of it. I'll post them when I do.
