Deluxe Sako L57 Forrester Rifle .243 Winchester Excellent

  • Maker: Sako
  • Model: L-57
  • Caliber: .243

  • Description: Serial #3229, .243 Win., 23" barrel with an excellent, bright bore. This is a late 50s-made rifle that has retained 98-99% of the original blue finish with some barely detectable age discoloration present on the barrel. The rifle is fitted with an original Sako adjustable aperture rear sight, along with the original front sight hood. The walnut stock features checkering on the forend and pistol-grip, white line spacers on the original grip cap and Sako buttplate, and original sling swivels as well. The wood has some small handling marks scattered about the original varnish, and mild flattening of the checkering points. This is a splendid example of a desirable early Sako, and would make a wonderful addition to any collection. FFL or C&R
