Sako L-61R Pre-Garcia 7mm Remington Magnum -- $700 OBO  Guns > Rifles > Sako Rifles
Description: This is a used Firearms International-era Sako L61-R in 7mm Remington Magnum. It was my dad's gun. The only one of his Sakos I'm selling. Or would consider selling. He liked to shoot the heavy 162 and 168 grain bullets out of his 7mms, but the twist-rate of this rifle (which I believe is 1-in-11 or 1-in-11 1/2) couldn't properly stabilize the bullets. So he quickly lost interest and moved on, first to his Ruger No. 1 and then, later, to his Sendero. (I swear he must've been one of the first guys to buy a Sendero....)

That said, this gun is a beaut for bullets of 150 grains and under.

The stock has some handling marks. I'd put it at 90 percent. (All handling marks should be visible in the attached pics.) There's also some wear on the bluing, too. I'd put it at around 90 percent, too. I can tell you that my dad gave both the trigger and the action a meticulous going over. The action is silky-smooth (he must've used a combination of grinding compound and other tricks to really even it out), and the trigger is nice.

Bore looks good. No pitting or scratching. Has hooded front sight. Also has Redfield Mounts.

This is a great shooting 7mm. Buy with confidence. All items fully insured. Will ship to registered FFLs only.
