I stumbled upon a Sako Vixen 222. It has blonde wood with rosewood endcaps. Barrel says L461 & Bofors Steel. Serial # in the 90K's. Blue is nice. Wood shows some small dings. The worst thing I see on it is the Sako recoil pad is a bit mashed. It has a Lyman All American 4 power on it too. I'd appreciate any input. If this is an improper question to ask here, I apologize moderator & will accept my flogging.

Scrapnel would probably be the best bet on here for real worth.

Myself I've been watching Vixens for over a year now, specifically .222's.

My .02 cents on yours 750-850.00 it would sell pretty quick. Most are asking 900-1100.00 and some bring that, but they seem to sit around for a long time. I don't know really a thing about the different variations and what's more desirable. I just want a nice one that I can also go shoot.

Don't think the scope really adds anything to yours, and they don't look like original rings either?


ps: I'll give you 501.00 smile

Good advice... Also keep in mind that the pad is going to be a detraction but I agree the 750 to 800 area it should sell without having to sit on it for a long time.

The Borfus steel barrel is a plus...

Out of curosuity, what engraving is onthe floor plate. If it is other than the Antelope, it may help with value a little...

A couple of thoughts/questions come to mind.
Are you buying or selling. Are you a Sako Nut.

I am a Sako nut. I've owned three vixens in 222. As well as heavy barreled 223, a couple of 243's and 257 bob in L579.

I purchased my L461 vixen varmint at retail about 10 years ago and paid $850. It was pristine, probably never had been fired.

I just picked up a riihimaki 222 pre-461 Sako in 222. Paid $900.
Neither were a deluxe.

I've sold several in the last year or so. Went between $850 and $1k. they were heavy barreled varmints, neither were deluxes.
I'd say anywhere from $900 to $1,100.
You might take a look at gunbroker, gunsamerica etc. and see what they are bringing there.
Best

The rings/base look to be Redfield, the floorplate has what look like acorns engraved on it. The l461 is on the receiver, not the barrel.
