This rifle is a tack driver, and except for the stock being a little beat up (nothing a good refinish won't fix) it is pristine. It's a high gloss finish, but it's seen better days. The wood itself is beautiful. My father in law was an avid North American big game hunter and used this rifle to take a "grand slam" of big horn sheep, and a couple of excellent prong horns. (but I digress) I would upload some pics but I'm in the process of refinishing the stock. It's serial is 306641, no import markers anywhere I'm thinking it's "pre Garcia", with a Redfield 2x7 scope that appears to be about the same vintage. I wanted to rescope it with a nicer more modern scope, but my son has insisted that it was good enough from Grandpa and he wants to look through the same glass. (I can respect the hell out of that) The only thing that perplexes me is that there is no crown on the barrel. It almost looks sawed off square, but it's perfectly blued and smooth to match the rest of the barrel. Did Sako not crown their barrels back then or is it possible a quarter inch has been removed to repair some damage. I wish I could ask my father in law, and if it's been repaired I'd love to hear the story, but too late for that. Also is fully glass bedded. It looks PERFECT. Did Sako send these out bedded or is that my father in law coaxing every last bit of accuracy out of this rifle? Any insight for you old Sako hands would be appreciated.
