    There was a NIB Tikka M55 thread, how about a NIB L461

    There was a thread in the For Sale about a NIB Tikka M55 in 243W up for sale, they certainly don't make rifles like that anymore, the manufacturing methods have changed and ways have been found to keep prices down to make them competitive price wise.

    Occasionally (but not very often) I see an older firearm that is in excellent condition selling for (what I consider) reasonable money, but you don't very often see an older rifle selling that is New In the Box which makes it quite rare in NZ.

    Over in the US you find a few more that are NIB for sale, obviously bigger population and a number of collectors.

    But I have seen very few Sako L461 rifles that are NIB so here goes one

    Sako have a huge following and even average condition older ones fetch good money in New Zealand.
    Yes this one is up for auction, unfortunately not locally

    Your right what you say about NIB in the US.Original packaging...

    Have spent quite a bit of time on Gunbroker, most of the older rifles seem to pop up and generally be available, some in amazing condition given their age. A few years back I purchased and imported an older original remington rifle (mid 70,s manufacture) off gunbroker. Was described as 98% condition. I doubt it was hardly fired...

    The gent I dealt with was a firearms dealer and when I asked for any history on the rifles previous owner ,he stated that the rifle I purchased was from a collectors estate, he had purchased of over 180 firearms....
