    I was at a gun show a week ago and found a 579 Deluxe in 22-250. It is no disappointment in the shooting department either. I just got the P-75 today and found a set of rings/bases and a Leupold scope. I haven't shot it yet, but will soon...

    Nice. Is it stamped L579 or AII? Looks like it has the AII bolt shroud, but I think some late L579's had that shroud too? The safety catch looks a bit different to mine.

    Nickz: Good catch on the safety lever. It looks like a Timney to me. The higher comb also is typical of an A-II, so if this one is marked L579 it would be very late in the run.

    Both are very nice ones, kirk!

    It is a late l579. The trigger, I am not sure about. Why anyone would replace a Sako trigger is beyond me. By the way, if someone has a Sako trigger, I would be interested...

    I got the Deluxe at a gun show, but the Hornet I got off the internet. I just found a Harrington and Richardson Ultra-Wildcat in 17 Remington and bought it, so the P-75 is going up for sale...
