Very Early L579 Deluxe .243 Win
Here's one which every Sako enthusiast will find desireable! This very early L579 Forester Deluxe exhibits a number of features not found on the later models, and on top of that, is in outstanding condition. It has the flat, checkered bolt knob, half-moon magazine release inside the trigger guard, diamond grip cap inlay, front sight, and most uniquely, the "Fishgods" engraving on the bottom metal. This is the "three eye" Fishgod rather than the two-eye version. It also has the "prohibited" Weatherby rearward slant on the contrasting fore end tip and the Bofors Steel mark. All is in outstanding condition, going better than 95%. It is all original except that the recoil pad was badly deteriorated, so we had it restored with a brand new Pachmayr almost identical to the original. The 23" barrel is in just as good condition on the inside as outside, and the internal magazine holds five rounds down. This one is collector quality, but deserves to be shot as it was designed. C&R eligible, of course.
