Sako A-III Deluxe Finnbear .30-06
This .30-06 A-III (successor to L61R action) exhibits a darker tone stock than most Deluxes, which many Sako enthusiasts like to see. The metal and bore are excellent, while the wood finish does show a few scattered dings, but nothing that isn't readily refreshed with a dab of poly finish. The pad shows just a bit of crush, but is perfectly usable as is. The A-III features a shrouded bolt and a higher comb than the earlier L61R which makes for better eye alignment when using a scope, particularly a scope with a larger diameter objective which is currently popular. Barrel is 24.4 inches and the magazine holds five rounds down. This fine Sako was built circa 1980 and the versatile .30-06 chambering makes it appropriate for everything from whitetails to moose, plus African plains game.
