• Hey All! Lately there has been more and more scammers on the forum board. They register and replies to members requests for guns and/or parts or other things. The reply contains a gmail or hotmail address or similar ”anonymous” email addresses which they want you to reply to. DO NOT ANSWER ANY STRANGE MESSAGES! They often state something like this: ”Hello! Saw your post about purchasing a stock for a Safari. KnuckleheadBob has one. Email him at: [email protected]” If you receive any strange messages: Check the status of whoever message you. If they have no posts and signed up the same day or very recently, stay away. Same goes for other members they might refer to. Check them too and if they are long standing members, PM them and ask if the message is legit. Most likely it’s not. Then use the report function in each message or post so I can kick them out! Beware of anything that might seem fishy! And again, for all of you who registered your personal name as username, please contact me so I can change it to a more anonymous username. You’d be surprised of how much one can find out about a person from just a username on a forum such ad our! All the best! And be safe! Jim

Sako Collectors Club Discussion Forum

I purchased the rifle at an estate sale as you see it here. At the time I purchased it, it had never been shot.
Do you think that the stock could be a Sako “custom shop” job or was it an aftermarket upgrade?
I don’t know anything about the rifle other than I think it was made in the mid 70’s based on its serial number.
I guess I need to go to the Sako Collectors store and buy the information I’m asking for.
There is no such thing as the Sako "custom shop", but the custom stock on your L61R is nicer than any Sako factory stock by far!!!
 
Ok, thanks. So, to be clear, in your opinion, it’s a Deluxe from Sako but it was re-stocked later?
Yes, based on the high polish blue and floor plate, logic would suggest it originated as a Sako Deluxe, maybe it was broken or the owner simply wanted the rifle to be one of a kind. It is speculative, but I’ve seen it done before.

Oh, ok. Well, I’ll take your opinion as my own then. I appreciate it. I really do. I don’t know much about Sako’s other than that they’re the best gun for the money. But now, I have a better idea of my own Thanks to you And the other gentlemen on this site.
