This subject came up on another thread where Blooroster mentioned that he once owned one of these in .222 Magnum. I thought the subject deserves its own thread. The poor quality reproduction above of an advertisement from sometime in the 1950's/1960's is part of the scant evidence of the existence of these proprietary rifles on a Sako action. The one in the ad is on an L57, while the one Bloo owned was on a later L461. The address of the "North American Arms" company is in Toronto, and it is my best guess that these were distributed only in Canada. However, I'd love to be corrected if they were distributed in other countries. The L461 that Bloo owned he says had a Bofors-marked barrel. The stock illustrated in the only photo he has of it show non-Sako characteristics, so it appears that the "Grizzly" may have been all-Sako metal with a non-Sako stock. The closest I've come to ever seeing one in the flesh was a stock off of one being offered on ebay several years ago. If anyone has any information on the "Grizzly" or North American Arms (apparently not the company of the same or similar name which makes the mini revolvers), please tell us what you know!
