Default Any Sako gurus out there??

A shooting buddy recently showed me a Sako Varmint Bench rifle he purchased new in the mid 90's. It was supposed to be a solid bottom single shot but arrived as a repeater. It's chambered in 6PPC on the A1 action. This model was not listed as a standard offering. He inquired about this to the original importer (Stoeger) and they furnished a factory letter letter stating that it was 1 of 15 imported into the US. He never fired it and it's still in the original box with all packaging. He asked me what I thought the market for it might be.......I've got no clue?? Anybody hazard a guess?

Maybe try the Sako Collector's web site.....

Herb in PA, since I saw you are in Latrobe, there is a very nice SAKO shop called Accuflite Sports in Export, PA. (724) 733-3666. 5120 Old William Penn Hwy, 15632. They do a lot of custom SAKO rifles and bolt action pistols.

AT the time of purchase my buddy showed the gun to that guy and he offered to trade him for any Sako he had. I know they offer custom Sakos usually with Lothar Walther barrels, he used a benchrest gunsmith named Dave Bruno to build a lot of them.

Default 6ppc

Howdy Herb,

Sounds like a rarity for sure. SCC would be a good call. Have him show it off there. The version your friend was trying for run from 1200-1700 depending on condition, wood etc. The repeater hunter versions @1500. Deluxes can bring up to mid 2k. Awhile back, a one of a kind AV mannlicher in 7x57 was sold for @3300. So that might give him some area to start. Id put it on GBer with a healthy reserve and let her sail. Does it have the externally adj. Br trigger? I have the same set up in an AII .308. HB, BR repeater. It was bought in Germany and brought back to US, only one I've seen, as that version wasn't marketed here, so I've been told and so I've read.

The PPC Sakos with magazines maybe a rarity in the US but here in New Zealand they were quite common, I remember at the time they were new there was two 22PPC's sitting in one of the local sports shops waiting for the new owner to pick them up, one was a single shot the other had the magazine.

From memory the single shot was less common than the magazine fed version.

Here they both sell pretty quick and for pretty big money, although I haven't seen one for sale for quite some time.

Thumbs up Somebody say small Sakos.....????

Here's a pic of a factory Sako 6PPC lightweight hunter repeater......that I killed, to build a 17PPC (pictured).

Although I do have a factory Sako 17Rem HB repeater with the factory target trigger(with "holey" trigger guard)..........I've never seen the same rifle that is factory chambered in 22PPC or 6PPC.

Interesting.......

Kevin

Default Sako 6ppc

The repeater is a lot rarer than the single shots, the 22Ppc rarer than the 6. I've never seen a factory original varmint repeater so any factory literature that can support it's provenance would go a long way to increasing it's value. I've sold 22 and 6ppc repeaters for over 2k. In Deluxe trim over 3.5k, one just sold for that on GunBroker a couple weeks ago, I believe it was a 22ppc Deluxe.

I watched that one Chuck, asked about showing some pix of the reciever sans the weaver bases with set screws...no reply. I thought it went for @2500. No matter, I wasn't in it.
