SAKO Forester L 579.
I have one which has been rebarrelled with BERGARA Varmint #7 Profile in .308.
By no means an expert but seems to do the job for me, happier/est with Sierra # 2124 135 Grn, also BERGER #30570 168 Grn. Replaced scope recently with HAWKE #16160 Endurance SF 6-18x50, first time side focus, beats the hell out of using objective focus. Met a SAKO collector said L579 collector item but a bit less due BERGARA change, another shooter friend wants me to will it to him he loves using it, mostly on goats at 150 300 yds is good.
At this time just rec'd COCKING WRENCH as it is a bugger trying to get the assembly back after disassembly, I simply can't. Removed it to check for headspace as a gunsmith in Victoria showed me. The wrench supplied is incorrect so am not winning.
Anyone listening on tips to get the thing back would be appreciated.
Gday Tuppo, Try post in the Forum mate I'm sure you will get more traffic than my Profile its all good,
I'm not too familiar with the Sako l579, I do own a Sako A1 .222 but its not the same...
