    Sako_1.jpg Sako_2.jpg Sako_10.jpg Sako_13.jpg Just a few pictures of a rifle I've owned since 2008. I have 14 more photos, but am trying to abide by the forum rules of only posting 4 photos. It hasn't seen the light of day in years, spending most of its life as a safe queen in a protective sock.. That said, is there anyone here that owns One of these or anyone that has wanted One for years like I did? By the way, the butterfly in Picture #2 was not originally included with the rifle. Not too many Sako's come with a real Butterfly, LOL!

    Beautiful! I recently bought an AII deluxe in .308 off the board. A year or two before I bought a sporter 6ppc here as well. I've looked high and low for a sporter 6PPC with factory iron sights. I've decided such a beast doesn't exist.

    Super nice, Kirk!

    Rodger at SakoSource had one about four or five years ago which sold to a guy in Oklahoma, I think. I can't remember what it brought, but it was somewhere above $2K. There is one currently on Gunbroker for an opening bid of $3,000, but it has been there several weeks and hasn't attracted a bid, so I've got to believe that the current market is somewhere between $2K and $3K.

    I looked at one last week locally which was for sale, but the guy thought it was worth $3,500. He couldn't seem to understand that if no one among thousands of potential buyers bid on an identical one at $3,000 that he wasn't likely to find a bidder through the local classifieds for $3,500.

    I own one of the standard sporter version. With 55 grain Ballistic Tips it will shoot some very gratifying groups. It has also been used to divide some prairie dogs into multiple components.

    If you'll use your computer's photo program to first resize the photos to a maximum of about 1080 pixel width they will upload much faster and still show up with the same detail. This saves a lot of space on the forum's server.

    I am looking for one like this for sometime now!
    I looked at the one at gun broker also and made an offer but the seller things it ought to bring more than market to a collector....and it has no box
    That one was said to have a 14 twist
    Are there any with 12 twist?
    Is it true there is two different barrel sizes in width early versus later in one of the 66 mm sporters?
    I want one and plan to use it also as I do my single shot 6ppcs I have

    I have one in 6mm PPC and 22 PPC as well. They are not common and I use them as varmint rifles. I also have both the 6 and 22 PPC in single shot rifles. It wasn't easy but I got consecutive serial numbers 20 and 21...

    If you wanted to make that a hat trick, a mate has 22PPC A 022 sitting in his safe as a pristine safe queen; would not be cheap though.

    Cheers

    That would be nice, but how to get it from there to here would be the real hat trick...
