Sold-Pending Used Sako, L579 Forester, 243 cal. [Port St. Lucie] $800.


This is a shortened stock, pre 72,  Finnland Sako, Forester in 243. Would be excellent for a small female or youngster. The bore is excellent and is a Bofors steel barrel. The recoil pad is in good useable condition. I’ve  had this rifle as part of my Sako collection but the “mannlicher” stock has a lot of “hunting” marks or maybe just always transported in trunk without a case.

Either  way, the blueing, action, bottom metal and barrel are in very good shape. The LOP is ~12.5” and weight is ~6.5lbs. These don’t come around often and as most that know the brand, original Sako rifles last many lifetimes of use. I have function checked at range and it shoots fine. Look at the pictures and if any other angles are needed, don’t hesitate to request in an email or text. I tried to show the stock bumps and such, in the pics.


$800 FTF in Port St. Lucie, FL, or within 30 miles on Rt. 95 exits.

Must be at least 21, Florida resident and Bill of Sale, unless I know you.


$70  “CONUS” shipping  in a hard case with insurance, to your FFL from a private seller with a copy of my DL.  AK & HI, at cost.
