    This is a bolt action Sako #26639 in .222 with a removable magazine. I traded the scope that was on it for a Colt 45. I was wondering it's worth and would like to trade for a nice 30-06 M1 Garand.

    The stock has a few light scratches, but overall is really nice.

    The rifle in the photo is fully custom. Neither the barrel nor the stock are original to the Sako L46 action it is built on. Such rifles vary widely in market value so you can't say what yours might be worth from just photos and brief description. It is nearly impossible to get as much out of a custom rifle as went into it.

    Looks like an L46 Riihimaki with a custom stock - if you look on the left side of the receiver you should see the model Look at the barrel and see what is stamped on it to tell if it is SAKO or a custom barrel.
    Good luck

    After the serial number, there is a cartouche of what appears to be a Lion's head, and a fancy looking 'N' on the receiver and also on the barrel. Any idea what these mean ?

    Ravinsomniac, The Lions Head I understand to be the Finnish proof mark and the N denotes the person who inspected at the Sako factory.
