    Original Bofors .223 rems are highly desirable and highly sought after so I feel compelled to say: Potential BUYERS BEWARE here. There is A LOT more non-original than original about this Sako rifle listed on GB, which is represented to be a L-461 .223 Rem in 97% condition.

    I have no vested interest at all in this auction other than pointing out what are either ill-informed (I'll give the seller the benefit of the doubt) or dishonest inferences by omission not disclosing the non-originality of this rifle, a rifle which one of our SCC Forum members might otherwise be interested in. SCC members: BUYER BEWARE. This rifle is a highly non-original Sako L-461"Bofors marked" .223 and not a 97% (original) condition Bofors L-461 .223 rem.

    Rechambered, and the wood is refinished. The clumsy overstamp of the caliber marking is a dead giveaway.

    We always like when the knowledgable members chip in on the forums. Whether it’s about fake guns or just social banter, feel free to speak out!!:)

    And yes, the overstamping look like crap to be honest!!
