    hey guys i've got a guy selling a Sako M591 LH synthetic that's been rebarreled with a Lilja 24" tube. barrel is supposed to have less than 100 rds through it.

    the guy's asking $1000 for the gun with a Leup VX-3 6-20.

    i've always had the opinion that Sako's are high end guns but i don't have any experience with them and this deal seems "too good" is there anything that i'm missing?

    thanks for the input.

    I bought my 591 in 2005 for $800 and that was for a used but well-loved rifle (also LH) with factory wood stock and factory barrel and an old Burris 4x scope. I haven't hunted anything with it yet but it made nice 3" 3-shot groups at 375 yards on steel targets at Boomershoot that year using Black Hills factory ammo (and a better scope). With a Lilja, the Leupold, and the (presumably non-factory?) synthetic stock, plus inflation since 2005, I'd guess you're getting your money's worth at $1k.
