This is my Sako S491 in 17 Remington. Regarded by some as the finest short action Sako has ever made.
I have only had it a month.
Round count I am reliably informed by previous owner is well under 500 since the rebarrelling, and all factory loads, so not at all toasty. I shot literally 10 rounds through it to zero it. Truth is I can not afford to keep it and shouldn't have bought it in the first place :/
Barrel: Shilen stainless 19.5 inch, 10-twist, threaded 1/2" UNF
Calibre: 17 Remington
Moderator: Dave Mercer DM80 17-calibre
Round count (this barrel): sub-500
Scope: NOT included
Scope rings: Sako, included
Overall the stock is fair and the action is good. There are some cosmetic dings on the stock, they could be sorted by a gunsmith, or if you are going to use this as a tool or get it restocked then they will not bother you.
The bolt cycle is dead smooth and crisp, not at all sloppy, everything is firm and feels good, the sort of quality you expect from Sako.
Trigger is superb, as you'd also expect.
I am having it recrowned so the thread will be a couple of mm shorter when you receive it.
Shoots very well indeed, you are welcome to try it out before you buy.
Asking £750 £700 face to face or £720 sent to an RFD of your choice.
