    This is the first one like this that I have seen. 7mm-08 Caliber.

    I think you could be our "Personal Shopper", Rocky?

    Fantastic, a unicorn.
    The oak leaf carvings differ from the ones I’ve seen in other calibers.
    A tip of the hat to you, sir!

    Yes, very different from all of the other Super D's I've seen. And, in a rather scarce caliber, at that! Great find. If we had an emoji for envy I'd place it here.

    Note that Sako continued to use the "L579" designation on the box and hang tag even long after changing the action designation to A-II.

    This Sako I think is probably the nicest as far as wood and finish that I have. It's really a gorgeous rifle.

    I'm attending the SHOT Show in Vegas this year so I'm planning to stop by the Sako Booth and ask them more about this type of Super Deluxe.

    Unfortunately, they won't have a clue. The Beretta USA reps at the SHOT show probably can't even tell you the models of anything prior to the Model 75 -- and that will be but a faint memory of times past to them. But do report to us what you find when you visit with them.

    Sako has a display in the Beretta area and the Representatives from Sako are always there. Miikka Tamminen is one, the Product Manager. He's a good guy and will always try to answer your questions.

    Congrats on a fine rifle. Much more tastefully done than older SDs. That is the first late model AII SD that I've seen.

    Incredible bluing! ( and the perfect chambering, not that I think it will see much field use!)

    I think covid may raise hell with that this year.

    No Shot Show report, and I'm bummed about it. I've had my airline tickets and room reservation since last May but had to cancel all just this week.

    The guy that I was using to get in to the show ended up not going, so that canceled everything. So now, maybe next year.

    And Misako, your right. Alot of the vendors I heard were dropping out because of the Covid thing.
