I have a Sako L579 Forrester 243 Rifle also but mine has a American Silver Dollar imprinted into the stock which I thought was kind of odd for a Polish made gun. Any answers would be greatly appreciated.
ON GUNBROKER.COM THEY HAVE A L579 FORESTER WITH S/N 78750 DATED 1968 AND ALSO ONE WITH S/N 10599 DATED 1960 .THAT SHOULD GIVE YOU A PRETTY CLOSE IDEA I'M GUESSING 1967 OR 1968.AND I BELIEVE THEY ARE MADE IN FINLAND
