Sako L61R Finnbear Deluxe .300 Win
This Garcia era Deluxe Finnbear is very nice overall, rating around 95%. The wood shows minimal handling marks, the blue is very good, and the bore is excellent. Also, the original pad is lively and uncrushed unlike so many from this time. A recoil compensator has been added to the barrel, but the barrel is full length (24.4") and uncut. The rifle can be used with or without its recoil reducer, or the compensator can be removed from its threads and replaced with a suppressor if desired, which is very popular with European hunters and becoming more and more popular with North American hunters, also. Like all Deluxe Sakos it features skipline checkering, contrasting wood grip cap and fore end tip, engraved floorplate, and deeply polished bluing. All in all it makes an impressive big game rifle with great power and range which is suitable for everything that roams the continent.
