Description: Colonel Charles Askins' left hand Sako .25-308 Norma. An custom rifle based on a Sako L61R action with serial number 141, the bolt handle was relocated to the left side and a custom barrel added prior to stocking. The rifle is unmarked as to its maker, other than the initials "RB" appearing along side the caliber stamping on the barrel. Additional features include a 24-inch barrel, nickel bolt handle/knob, ebony forend tip and grip cap, well-executed borderless checkering, Monte Carlo comb and a scalloped cheekpiece with an accenting dart at its fore. PROVENANCE: A brass nameplate engraved "CHARLES ASKINS" is affixed to the stock just ahead of the floorplate. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 8.4 pounds and length-of-pull is 13.5 inches. CONDITION: The bore is bright and shiny with strong rifling. The polished blue over the barrel and action is approximately 95 percent, with the nickel bolt handle showing at approximately 70 percent and the bottom metal at about 80 percent with some scratching. The portion of the action where the right side was built up during conversion remains unfinished. The oil-finished stock retains at least 90 percent of its original condition, with a number of field impressions, light scratches and a minor chip repair at the shoulder just ahead of the thumb safety. Several small blotchy spots appear on the stock where the finish has thinned, mostly on the cheek piece. The price is firm and layaway is available. Additional photos are available by request (include direct email address).
