Sako Very Early L579 Sporter .243
This very low number Forester (serial number 10876) was inspected in January of 1960 and exhibits all of the unique characteristics of the earliest L579's. It has the flat, checkered bolt knob, half-moon floorplate release inside the trigger guard, and bolt shroud with longitudinal grooves rather than checkered surface. The metal and stock are in very nice condition and the bore is excellent. The sling swivels have been replaced with quick detach studs, but otherwise the rifle is all original. Barrel length is 23.6 inches and the magazine capacity is five rounds down.
