    I hope you dont mind, but here are some more photos of the sako .22
    With such a nice piece of wood and a factory finish being what it is, I decided to refine it a little bit.
    I applied a few coats of light schaftol stock oil, followed by some real fine sandpaper (1500 to 2000g), then rubbed it with a rag and repeated a couple times. Came up pretty good I reckon.

    @Marty Henry You are right, the other side is just like a stained brown fence paling
    Na, The other side is similarly as pretty. That's all the excuse I need to post more photos.
    Will get her out tonight.

    That’s one of the best I’ve seen, usually the striping doesn’t get from one end to the other. Impressive.

    Na haven't shot it yet. Hopefully ill get a chance to this Friday or weekend.
    I have no doubt it will shoot great though. They are generally very accurate & have nice triggers. It is of course also covered by Sako's 5 shot sub-moa guarantee.

    Here is a right hand side shot of it looking at it from the alternate extreme angle. Its like a tiger eye gem in that is changes with the angle that you look at it and how much light is on it.

    I’d noticed it and thought it had potential.
    Time came to obtain a .22, traced back serial number , found it was still sitting in inventory, obtained it, schaftol’d her up and here we are. I didn’t actually check any other rifles
    There are many stocks that never realise their potential. A couple hours extra finishing can really turn a good stock into something exceptional.

    Similar to my 85 Hunter 243. There is obviously the odd "special" one out there.
