    Unique! Thanks for posting, Branx.

    So far as I know there were only a few Sako distributors who would go to the effort to have Sako produce a one-off rifle, and one of them was the Australian distributor. We can't find any record of such one-offs being shipped to the U.S.

    Extremely rare. IMHO this would be difficult to imagine a need to invest that much, but it would certainly be a jewel for the extreme collector depending on actual condition as inspected. Sakojim.

    Thanks Marcus for posting.
    At least we'll have a record of it on here as it's now marked 'sold'.
    The seller is a member on here, hopefully he'll tell us more about it one day; and hopefully the buyer will post some nice photos also!

    Cheers
    Piper
