This is a post-64 push-feed Model 70 that has been set up to be the centerpiece of an elk or Alaska trip. The wood is a very trim and highly functional style, with flawless wood to metal fit, and strikingly figured black walnut. Rollover cheekpiece, Pachmayr "Competitor" vent recoil pad, Mike's swivel studs. High luster (what looks like epoxy) finish. It is apparent that when this stock was fitted, all metal was reblued to deep luster polish by the same professional, barrel was shortened to 22" and Magna-Ported. Makes this lightweight thumper kick less than a .270. Whoever paid for all this work wanted a slim, fast handling and easy-carrying business rifle. I believe the craftsman might be Kurt Mueller of Forest Grove, and I will confirm (or refute) this with him shortly. ***CONFIRMED!*** (see bump post below). (The stock design and finish work is identical to a .221 Fireball Sako he built for me.) Gun shows minor hunting wear. This was no "fleece case queen" during its hunts, but was very well cared for. Someone else's dream gun can now be yours at a fraction of what it cost to put together. Serious inquiries may enjoy exploration toward inclusion of Leupold rings or mounts in order to cinch a deal. The gun currently sports Weavers. Asking $575.
