    Hey all, Purchased my first Sako at auction last week. I found this site and have got little else done here since. My purchase, L579 Deluxe .243 with a 13000 series # and, as per info found here, a scarce moose /antler floorplate, guard. I've enjoyed the info in the forums. I also suspect that the growth in my Browning collection may slow, although I've a Sako actioned Safari. Anyway thanks for the info I've gleaned from y'all so far, looking forward to more!

    Telling us about a moose floorplate without a picture is considered unfair teasing, Gunsrlife! Let's see that floorplate (as well as the rest of your great buy.) And welcome!

    Welcome to the forum and congrats! Welcome to the moose floorplate club as well, I think you're our 3rd or 4th member if my memory serves me correctly. Great find, please post pics!

    Fantastic! It looks like your rosewood pistol grip cap and foreend tip are a bit on the darker side, almost ebony colored. Very nice!

    Wow! I'm lucky enough to own another moosehead .243 deluxe, and there are only a handful of these things floating around. I'd love to know if they exist in .308 and .244.

    thanks for sharing!

    Hey @deergoose , mine is chambered in .308. It also sports iron sites. I'd imagine one in .244 would be an incredibly rare configuration!

    I believe the stock has been refinished, when I broke it down there was reapplied finish at the edge of the barrel channel. This also has taps for rear iron sights that I suspect were post factory. Still, it exists and I’ll enjoy shooting and hunting with it.
