Hunting Rifle

The rifle is a Sako action L61R from around the late 60’s that had a custom heavy barrel and stock installed by Flaig’s (an old, now gone, German gunsmith/custom shop in western Pennsylvania). Flaig’s chambered the gun in .375 Weatherby, but I plan on shooting .375 H&H through it (assuming it likes that). It has a vintage redfield scope that I don’t know much about, it may be usable, maybe not. The glass is ok, but the eye relief could be better. I will probably look for a more modern scope, but I do like the vintage look. It needs a new recoil pad, and I think I need the LOP lengthened a little. I’m thinking about having Ken at speedbump stockworks put one of his gold series recoil dampers on it and adjust the stock to me. Other than that, it need a cleaning and I’m looking forward to shooting it.
