That name is a mouthful for one rifle, isn't it? I knew nothing about this particular rifle, until seeing one on a seller's table while strolling around a gun show in a small near-by Kentucky town. It had a light colored stock, blonde is what I term a stock like that. I picked it up and worked the bolt and I was an immediate fan.
I checked the chambering and when it said simply .270, I knew I had to have it. I traded a very nice pre '64 Featherweight in .243 for it, straight up. I got a killer deal on the .243 and ultimately, I do feel this very rare Sako will be worth even more than the Winchester in the future. Doesn't really matter though, as I like it much better than that .243.
Made from about 1950-1957, this rifle is pretty much a clone of the later Browning bolt action rifles, which were made by...drum roll here..... Sako. Yup, that's right! Sako made both the short and medium action Browning bolt action rifles from 1963-1974 after stopping production of their own (this) rifle.
This one has not disappinted me shooting very consistent 1.5-2" groups with most any ammo, and I find that more than acceptable for a 50+ year old rifle! A picture can be found here, if you're interested.
