Morning all- First, let me say I have long desired a Sako rifle. While the one I recently acquired doesn't necessarily tick all my boxes, it at least gets me in the game! I've spent way to many hours looking at Sako stuff recently, and had no idea how involved/diverse some of the models were. I'm already considering selling off a bunch of my 700's and M77s to make room for more Sakos ! (once I have a better grasp of what i'm looking at and the features I really want) So, the rifle I got recently is an L579 in 243, with a heavy barrel. 60's vintage I think. Bofor's marked. I'm pretty certain the stock is a replacement, as I haven't seen any thing exactly like it yet. Also, the LOP is 13 1/4", and has a Pachmyer butt pad (that fits very nicely, btw). I would appreciate any info you guys would like to contribute regarding age, model, etc.. I have put in a request for information from Factory Records Service. Also, if the stock is not an original, any info on replacements would be great. I understand an AII may fit, but not sure with the floor plate metal i have. Thanks again!
