SAKO L579 Custom 243 Win Rifle Yankee Gun Smithing

When the Sako L579 Forrester action was introduced in 1957 it quickly rose to legendary status and has stayed there ever since. Known for its superb design and manufacturing quality accuracy and reliability are superior to other production actions. So, for Yankee Gun Smithing it was the obvious choice for a custom death ray to be made for an accuracy obsessed customer. To it they mounted a Douglas Premium 26 heavy barrel (1.162 at the breech tapering to 0.758 at the muzzle) and custom Monte Carlo glass bedded stock with roll-over comb and Pachmayr Old English recoil pad. Atop the receiver are excellent Redfield bases and 1 rings. It retains 100% blue while the bore is and the stock is completely sound with thinly scattered light handling marks and scratches. The QD sling swivel studs have been removed for duty elsewhere and replacements can be easily installed. This rifle is set up for the long poke and can (and has) easily make it when in the hands of a rifleman.
