Was at Cabela’s in Springfield Oregon this morning stocking up for a fishing vacation I’m headed to next week. I had to stop by the library to see what they might have even though my priority is my trip. I found that same L61R .30-06 I wrote about several months ago. The price is now $559. I snapped a couple of photos for those of you who might be interested. In my humble opinion at $559. - this is a very good value for several reasons. 1. It is a pretty clean shooter overall as is. At $559 it would make a great backup, or a rifle for someone on a budget. 2. We talk about parts here frequently. Well there you go, at $559. - how could you go wrong given today’s cost and the lack of available Sako parts for this vintage. 3. It’s in a McMillan classic stock. Okay right there is $250-$300 all day long. Whom ever owned this Sako invested probably $450.+\- depending on the age of the stock. New these stocks are in the mid $500. range. Someone could pop the stock off and use it if they were trying to save weight or protect a really nice piece of wood, just sayin.. 4. It could be re barreled into a multitude of calibers in all sorts of barrel configurations, for any given purpose. I could probably go on with other justification but use your own imagination, and I’d bet you’d concur. If I didn’t have an extra already I’d be tempted myself. Right now I just want to go fishing. Hope you’re all having a great weekend.
