Good evening to all you avid Sako fans. I am only on my second Sako rifle but I have had it for over 30 years .As time progressed, my taste in rifles got heavier and accuracy, as opposed to weight became my major goal. My current Sako, an L579 in 22/250 is a single shot with a heavy barrel.I bought this new in England in the mid 1980's. This rifle was used for target competitions, varmint hunting and deer shooting. The latter use is unusual, but when I bought the rifle, the only rifle calibers allowed to shoot deer in my country(Ireland) were the 22/250 and the 5.6x57 . This rifle has won many competitions and taken many deer. It still groups as well as the day it was first shot.
