Sako L579 Deluxe .243 Bofors Steel
Here is a really nice pre-Garcia Bofors Steel .243 in the increasingly scarce Deluxe version. Everything appears original and it checks out as a Deluxe inspected in 1963 in the factory records, so the unengraved floorplate appears to have come that way from the factory -- a rare "mistake" from Sako. Its condition is 95% or better in both wood and metal, and the lively, uncrushed original recoil pad is a bonus. Also note that this rifle is equipped with a front sight like the European Deluxe models while most Deluxes shipped to the U.S. did not have a front sight. Barrel length is 23 inches and the magazine holds five rounds down. Since it was made in 1963 this rifle qualifies to ship directly to a C&R license holder.
