    RIFLE IS SOLD AS OF 12/7!

    Fellow SCC Club Members:

    We have recently come by a rare L57 Deluxe in .308. There were relatively few .308's chambered in the L57 compared to the much more numerous .243's -- and even fewer .308's in the Deluxe grade. To make it even more unique, this one has the rarely seen "vines" floorplate engraving:

    While this rifle is very rare and very desirable, it does show field use and has a very successfully repaired crack at the stock's wrist, so we got it at a lower cost than a pristine model and can therefore sell it at a lower cost. Here are more photos:

    You can get a good idea of its condition from the photos, and also see that has all of the attributes of an early L57 Deluxe -- "Weatherby" slant of fore end, fixed sling swivels, diamond (instead of tree) grip inlay, half-moon magazine release, and of course the very scarce "vines" floorplate engraving. We have obtained its date of inspection from the Factory Records Service (8 October 1959) and will pass the documentation on to the buyer.

    Because folks like SCC members can appreciate these features where the casual rifle buyer looking for a deer gun might not, we are not placing this on our website yet, but are offering it first to members and viewers of the SCC forum. Price is only $1,200 plus shipping. We don't have time to monitor the private conversations here on the forum, so if you want it give us a call at 325 Five Seven Six 358I.

    THANKS,
    Rodger at SakoSource.com
