    I have what I believe to be a deluxe VL63 chambered in .308 Win. I bought it used so I have no back story about it. What I do know: rifle has an exceptionally my figured stock; butt plate and grip cap are engraved and color case hardened. Barrel has not been tapped for a rear sight. What I assume to be a factory peep sight is mounted on the rear scope mount. Bluing is excellent. The serial number is very close to but does not match those provided elsewhere in this discussion. Any ideas?

    May be a customized one but if you provide good pictures we should be able to advise. In any case sounds like a beauty we would love to see.

    Sounds like a custom job. I've never seen or heard of a factory Sako with a case-hardened steel grip cap and buttplate. It does sound like a very interesting and beautiful piece. Please post photos.
