Default Magnum Research / Sako L691...

So I went to a newly opened gun shop today and while I was browsing a camo rifle caught my eye. I asked the guy what it was. Its a Magnum Research .270 win, Sako L691 action, Krieger barrel, trued, lapped lugs, pillar/glass bedded McMillan, and a super sweet trigger (not sure if its aftermarket or not). It has been fired about 6 times and they (consignee) wants $1500 for it but is open to offers. I was thinking about offering $1250.

It looks to me that it is an older Magnum Research rifle, since the new ones have carbon fiber barrels.

What do you guys think? Would it be worth it?

They were close to 1000 brand new and I ran into a few at gun shows that were 300 win mags and usedfor a little less. I was under the impression that Sako sold them receivers that were drilled and tapped with no dove tails and MR then put on the Krieger barrel and put it in a aftermarket stock. Theres a lot of guns to pick from at that price point these days.

I've saw a couple of those on GunBroker. All the ones I've saw have either a Bell and Carlson or HS stock, and blued actions, this one has a stainless action. So I'm not sure if it was custom ordered different or what. I e-mailed MRI to see whats up with it. And the gun shop was closed today and monday, so come tuesday I will know more.

Never did see one with a SS action and didn't know that Sako even made SS actions prior to the 75 action
