    D500, I'm not sure if you intended to be a smartass or not, if so, I'd keep it to yourself. If you didn't I apologize, it just reads that way to me. I do appreciate the pics, I'd love a lighter Sako, but I decided a .270 is too light a caliber for a Mtn Goat, gonna stick with my 7mm.

    My apology. I was making a joke. It is a factory rifle brand new in box. I was joking from the standpoint that most including me (for whatever reason) always want to see pictures...they're worth a 1000 words. I didn't realize people take themselves so seriously. My intention was not to get you rustled up. Just a joke my friend. I won't joke anymore. Sakos are great rifles. I have a few and love them. Good luck finding a 7mm rifle for your hunt. Again, my apologies.

    Never got around to listing this and it's still taking up room in my safe. Hunting season is in sight.
