SOLD - WTS Sako Forester L579 Deluxe, Pre 72, in .308
This very good condition L579 is part of my Sako collection. It has had some modifications with a Shilen 308 barrel and matt finish metal. It sports a vintage Leupold Vari X III, 4.5x14x40 scope on what should be Weaver bases made for Sako rifles. Has early "Deer in Woods" engraving and a very nicely figure stock.
As we all know, Sako quality went down a notch when Garcia took them over in 1972. I don’t know why the original owner switched to a new barrel but this one is superb and shoots, excellent. The recoil pad is a bit weak from standing in the safe for many years. Although the wood and metal on this rifle is superb, it was shot at the range I don’t believe it was ever hunted with considering what appears only a few little bumps and minor scratches in the wood. I haven’t fired since early 2K so will check functionality. These are quality rifles. I also have the Forester Manual in PDF form for the buyer.
