Rifle arrived.....was in great shape. Stock has the raised comb...with palm swell..... Sako pad. Settles in just fine.....
Bore good, bluing good. Everything great.
Fragile Leupold Vari-X III fell apart in transit.
Kidding........it arrived in great shape too.
Thanks for the heads-up. Always wanted one of these (280 then)....back when I worried about kid’s college tuitions.
My local gunshop just put up for sale (on consignment) a beautiful and beautiful condition Sako A-5 left hand Rifle in caliber 30/06.
The Rifle appears to have a 24" barrel and blued gloss finish with a Sako black fiberglass stock. The Rifle has gloss rings and they appear to be Sako's. The Rifle comes with a later model Leupld Vari-V III 3.5x10 variable matte finished scope and is at a consigned price of $1,100.00 (no sales tax in Montana).
I am not sure if a "cash" offer would diminish that asking price or not.
The shop was extremely busy today (I am NOT sure why because they have NO ammunition left for sale, NO pistols left for sale, just a few Rifles for sale and VERY little in the way of reloading components and just 2 shotguns where they usually have 20+!) and I could only peruse the Rifle from 4' away - but it appeared flawless to me.
Anyone interested can contact the shop directly Monday through Saturday at 406-683-9844 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (MST).
If I can answer any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
I am NOT at all sure what L/H Sako A-5's go for but I know I don't see them very often at all.
Hold into the wind
