    For those Sako devotees I thought I would put some pics up of my Sako Riihimaki deluxe .222 from 1959. I purchased it from a collection unfired and to date that's how it remains. I don't have a big Sako collection but will put pics of my unfired Finnwolf up when I get time.

    I'm envious...

    Does it lose value if you shoot it?

    I'm not that anal. I just haven't got around to it. Don't think a round or two would devalue. Truth be known most quality rifles are factory fired anyway. I have a couple of Coopers and they come with a target so they are. Most damage to collectable rifles in my experience is done by people carelessly taking them in and out of the safe.

    Riihimaki is where the Sako factory is.

    That is beautiful, and .270 will feed like butter. If it was mine I think i’d have to change that buttplate for a crescent one though. I’ve got an action that I’ve got to rebarrel and make the stocks for, the bolt face is for .303 so I’d have to do that or 30-40Krag.

    Thatís about as rare as rifles get these days, that gold leaf on the bottom metal is a nice understated design, Iíd rather have that than some common floral leaf any day. Iím looking forward to seeing that Finnwolf!

    The .222 is the weight and size of a .22RF. I will need to dig the Finnwolf out and take some good photos. Its in .308. Not a mark on it. Only came with one mag and I ended up sourcing a second in Sweden. Thanks for your interest.
