Default 22 Hornet

I have been looking for a Sako 22 Hornet for a long time. They are rare as hen's teeth because nobody wanted to pay $300 dollars for one. The P72 which came out in 1972 was the brainstorm of Garcia Corp who imported Sakos from 1972 until 1978. They were chambered in .22 LR and .22 Hornet. The P72 was replaced by the P75 which was only offered in .22 Hornet. In 1978, Stoeger took over and the rifle was re designated the M78 which lasted 4 years and was again chambered in .22 LR and .22 Hornet. Each model is essentially the same gun, however, the M75 has a slightly redesigned more streamlined magazine.

A collector of rare Sakos in Texas had decided to thin his herd and I found out about him through the Sako Club. He had a P75 Hornet in excellent condition.....it's on the way to me now! I have seen these sell for over $1500 on GB and I grabbed this on for a cool Grand delivered. I post some more pictures when I get her but no range report as I can't find any 22 Hornet brass Here is the gun, I purchased it without the scope and mounts. Regards, Rick.
