    Yes, it's a Browning Olympian-grade model on the Sako L579 action. Browning used Sako actions (L461 and L579) for, respectively, their short- and medium-action rifles of that era (1960s) with their Safari (lowest grade), Medallion (middle grade), and Olympian (highest grade) models. The FN Supreme action was used for the long-action cartridges in the same three grades. All were beautiful rifles--vastly superior in my opinion to today's Browning centerfire rifle offerings.
