    Sako L-61

    Listen up because you are about to learn something. The Sako L-61 is one of the finest rifles ever made. The piece was lovingly made of traditional materials. Everything is forged and machined and beautifully made. These are superb rifles and a wise man will look for them on the used market.

    These rifles are sadly out of production and have been replaced by models that are of low quality and high price. New Sakos should not be compared with these.

    The rifle in the picture belongs to Squinty's evil Finnish buddy. Evil Finnish buddy refuses to sell us this rifle. He is a greedy schmoe.

    I'm a genius. And you are not.

    New Sakos are of exceptional quality. The actions are very slick, they have excellent triggers, and they are quite accurate.

    You just picked up a hitcher...a prisoner of the white lines on the free way.

    The newer Sakos are ok, but seriously, comparing one to an L-61 is like comparing a three legged lame donkey to a thoroughbred racehorse.

    Yes, it is a .30-06.

    I think Sako knows more about what to incorporate into a good hunting rifle than just about any of the major American manufacturers. Look at their product line, and the decisions they have made, and it becomes clear.

    The older Sako and Tikka rifles can be picked up quite inexpensively here in the UK. I still can't understand the hoards of stalkers who willingly trade in their beautifully hand made, quality rifles for mass produced modern efforts. Some of these rifles have shot less than 100 rounds through the barrel.

    I bought this almost untouched rifle, complete with Swarovski Habicht 3-9x40 scope for a quarter of the price of a new Sako 85.
