I have a fascination for "proprietary Sakos", those rifles built by or for other brands of firearms marketers using the Sako actions. The fine little H&R Ultrawildcats receive a lot of attention (deservedly so), but H&R did use some larger actions for longer cartridges. Harrington & Richardson's large action Ultrarifle mostly used FN Mauser actions and was available in .270, .30-06, 7mm RM, and .300 Win, I believe. Very late in the run H&R switched to the less expensive Zastava Mauser 98. The circumstances are not clear, but a very few of these H&R's were also built on L61R actions (and a few medium calibers were on L579 actions). I ran across one of these in .270 Win a couple of weeks ago. When I received it, it had, as the seller mentioned, been in some kind of storage for 30 years. It had also been gather dust and grime like a magnet gathers steel filings. At first I was taken slightly aback, but as I scrubbed wood and metal a really nice, 98% rifle emerged. I thought maybe the group would like to see some of the features (especially since I understand that these are virtually unheard of in Europe, Australia, and S. Africa.) The stock is gloss finished and has a rollover cheekpiece, contrasting grip cap and fore end (with WBY slant), and a thin Pachmyer pad. The checkering is sharp, appears to be hand-done, and is a bit coarser (fewer lines per inch) than most Sako checkering. QD sling studs are factory. The barrel is of a very light contour, measuring 24" long and having a muzzle diameter of .588". The receiver is ROUND TOPPED, a rarity in the L61R. This one came with Weaver-type bases, thankfully, so I don't have to hunt down a set of bases for it. Also note the unique two holes in the right side of the rear bridge which are filled with filler screws. These are factory, and I've seen them in other round top Sakos. The sights are Williams. The caliber is engraved like a Sako circumferentially in front of the receiver ring, but I'm confident that the barrel is from H&R (or their supplier) rather than from Sako.
