Here are a few photos of a rather interesting SAKO based wildcat rifle built nearly a half century ago. It was a project of Dave Wolfe, at that time Publisher and owner of Wolfe Publications (Handloader and Rifle magazines), who was developing a .17 caliber cartridge based on the .223 Rem. case. Built on a Sako short and stiff single shot action (No magazine cut in receiver) it was chambered to Wolfe's specs and barreled by Ed Shilen and stocked by Reinhart Fajen with spectacular walnut/maple laminated woods. Scope is Vintage Lyman 10X All American scope in Sako extension rings. The single shot Sako actions were widely used by benchrest shooters back in those days because they were a solid foundation for a competition grade rifle. And yes, I still shoot this rifle from time to time and it shoots as good as it looks.
