    Sako L61r for sale. Pic heavy

    It's picture heavy as I took heaps.
    Low serial number, 17847 out of 90thou plus. I say roughly 1964 maybe 65 at a pinch.
    Original Bofors steel barrel so definately pre 1968.
    Original stock, period rings, sling swivels and older scope, scope is very clear, no fogging or moisture.
    Scope is a B.Nickel 4x81 made in Germany with a German Number one Post Reticle.

    Rifle stock has scratches but no cracks or really deep gouges.Black line is part of the stock, not a pen mark hiding anything.
    Interior of barrel is in excellent condition.
    Sights are originasl not a USA importer aftermarket.
    Excellent starter with the Sako name or simply for someone who wishes to restore as , as far as I can ascertain everything is original.
    Have tried to show best and worst.
    The good
