Sako A-V Mannlicher 7x57 One of a Kind!

Offered only by bid on Gunbroker for one week only until 3-3-2019 at 8 PM EST.  https://www.gunbroker.com/item/801132056

‚ÄčThis very unique Sako was sold in the 1996 Rock Island auction with the following description:  "7x57 cal. serial number 604427, 19 1/2" round bbl, blue finish. Mannlicher style stock. In original box, number to carbine, with documentation. Box is in excellent plus condition. Special order. One of one manufactured for R. Sylvester on A-V action. Very rare. Condition: New in box. Estimate $1700 - $2700.  It was later sold through Cabela's to a gentleman in Texas from whom we obtained it.  We believe it to truly be the only Mannlicher (full stock) ever made by Sako in 7x57 (7mm Mauser).  We cannot say if it has been fired, just that we can find no conclusive evidence of such.  Condition is "as new".  The oil finished stock shows absolutely no dings or marks.  It comes in the original box with proper end label and documents. It even has the original Sako detachable sling swivels in a plastic package.   We simply don't know how to price such a rare item, so go here to bid in this no-reserve auction:
