    Hello Brothers and Sisters!
    Today I have decided to start on a build project! I have some components to start with, but I do still need some parts to complete it.
    I'd like to put together a L61R Deluxe of some sort, hopefully in 25-06 rem, or I may settle for .270 win. I could also very easily go to a Super Deluxe or Golden Anniversary as well, as I believe the parts are interchangeable. A Finnbear standard grade cannot be ruled out either at this point nor would a L579 or L461 in a Deluxe grade.
    I have everything , as you can see, laid out very closely to where they need to be, and I feel it will take just a few simple adjustments once I get everything I need. I don't want to limit myself to Garcia era guns, tho' my sight hood is from that period. Actually , now that I think of it, some sako's came with out sights anyway. I can save a little there.
    If there are any of our members here who would like contribute any of the parts we don't see here, I will gladly pay for what ever you guys have to offer, Stocks and Barreled Actions and so on....the more parts that are already pre-assembled the easier it will be for me, so completed Stocks and barreled actions will be considered!:eyebrows:

    Thanks in advance to all for your time and interest.

    Ciao!

    Bloorooster!

    You missed the sight hood, recoil pad and scope when you applied the camo!!!!
    Couldn't help myself.....
    Good luck in your quest and we expect some detailed pics once completed.

    I bought 500 rounds of .222 Magnum brass when I was in college and I was in my late 30's by the time I found a Sako L461 to go with it. Still shooting the brass some 40 years later.

    So let’s see, you need a barreled action, a stock, a sling, some ammo, a deer, a rifle case?

    I can contribute a sling if it helps!

    You are closer to it than I am. Bloorooster was the prideful possessor of that floorplate. I was just a picture collector.

    But a really beautiful picture always requires a collector . I'll still take it. Jim
