    WTS Sako L461 Vixen .222

    Hi guys. I've really enjoyed this little Sako Vixen I bought from 'Kimber' nearly a year ago, but unfortunately really need some money and one of my rifles needs to go.
    The scope is a cheapie Hawke varipower I bought from Serious Shooters, as they assured me the brand was as good as Tasco, Bushnell etc. Both Toby and I can verify it's a good scope which holds it's POA and doesn't fog up any worse than much higher spec scopes.
    I've attached several photos, including a target shot using cheap Highland ammo (in a cross wind). I've shot many goats with 'Toby' out to 200m using PRVI and Highland ammo, keeping up with the other lads shooting 300WinMag and 7RemMag, so obviously she's a great shooting stick. The barrel is not original, as has no engraving stamps on it and I would suggest it's fired a bucket load of rounds through it.
    Glass bedded. Original recoil pad.
    Wood and bluing need a birthday. Wood is a truly beautiful piece of walnut with sound checkering, but needs a good oil and the bluing is very worn on mag plate/trigger guard in particular. Serial Number #128944 suggests manufactured in 1972 and the bolt matches.
    Included is rifle with bolt and mounted Hawke Sport HD 3-9x40 scope in quality steel rings.
    (i.e. no bag, bipod, sling etc included)
    Owes me $1,400 so that's what I'm asking from forum members. If no takers by Sunday, I'll put on Trademe for more next week.
    No trades please

    Hello - free bump for a nice rifle. I've decided to go with the one I looked at here locally so "thanks but no thanks " from me.

    Cheers
