    I found a nice Pre-Garcia Deluxe Sako which is rare to begin with, but this one is even more rare as it is marked "Bofors". When you are looking for nice vintage Sakos, this is the criteria you will look for. They didn't make many deluxes in 223 to begin with, but early Bofors marked guns are even more rare. It will be shot soon...

    I don't think I've ever seen a Bofors-marked Deluxe .223 -- that's quite a find, and looks in excellent condition. Front sights are also very rare on Deluxes of this vintage.

    I don't suppose you'd swap it to me for a Mossberg 16 gauge bolt action shotgun and a Sears Roebuck .22 auto with a Schrade-Walden custom carved stock and complete with a Tasco 4x scope with a 3/4 inch tube? There's a half of a box of paper 16's with #2 shot and a full box of Federal .22's that I'll throw in, along with a nearly full bottle of Hoppes #9 and a cleaning rod (the cleaning rod is for poking the shells out of the Mossberg since its extractor is a little worn).

    I really wouldn’t want to cheat you out of that nice Mossberg...
