Hi All, Recently picked up my 3rd Sako - a L579 Forester Deluxe in .308 Win (Serial # 18XXX). Once I saw the floorplate, I knew I had to have it! The rosewood forend tip is a bit darker than my other Sakos. Otherwise, it has some minor bluing loss towards the rear of the bolt and 1 scratch on the forearm checkering. Other than that, I think it's in phenomenal shape! Can't wait to shoot it! Thanks! - Paul B.
