Sako Forester L579 .243 Bofors Steel
Nice early pre-Garcias with the Bofors Steel barrel mark are increasingly hard to find. This one is fully original and in 95% or better condition in all respects. The factory records date it to 1965, making it eligible to ship directly to C&R License holders. The Bofors barrel is 23 inches in length while the internal magazine with hinged floorplate holds five rounds down. All of the original accessories such as fixed sling swivels, sight hood, uncut stock with original buttplate, and grip cap set off by white spacer are present on this very nice example of a Forester .243 Standard Sporter.
