Caliber: .17/223 (.223 Remington necked down to .17 Caliber)

Markings: The left of the barrel is marked "HARRINGTON & RICHARDSON, INC. / WORCESTER MASS. U.S.A. / 17/223", the right is marked "UlTRA WILDCAT", the markings appear to be gold leaf, which is also seen on the left of the receiver, marked "L461 NO. 97805", with two proof marks and "MADE IN FINLAND", seen again on the trigger, the inside of the stock has the correct serial number in red paint pen.

Barrel Length: The barrel is approximately 20" in length.

Sights / Optics: There are no iron sights. The receiver is mounted with two Sako pattern scope rings which allow twist-off removal, they are holding a Leupold Vari-X 3-9 Compact scope with serial number "P195652". The body has a few scuffs, the objectives are free of notable damages and produce a bright, sharp picture, the scope is in Excellent condition.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stock is a one piece high gloss finished fancy walnut with a Monte Carlo comb, left cheekpiece and dark wood capped pistol grip. The underside of the belly and forend have QD swivels, the tip of the forend has a dark wood insert and yellow spacer. The stock has a few shallow bruises by the floorplate and butt area, none jump out and grab attention, no cracks are seen and the wood's grain is superb. The LOP measures 13 1/2” from the front of the trigger to the back of the H&R marked rubber recoil pad; the pad has a black and yellow spacer, presenting factory flush fit to the stock, it has some rubbing and has darkened with age but is in about Fine Plus to Excellent condition. The stock rates in about Excellent overall condition as well.

Type of Finish: The finish is blued. The receiver is starting to turn plum colored with age.

Finish Originality: The finishes are original, the receiver may have been barreled by H&R when it got to the United States, we do not have any information on this rifle's full history, it sure appears to be a factory H&R setup overall.

Bore Condition: The bore is bright and the rifling is sharp. There is no erosion.

Overall Condition: This rifle retains about 97% of its metal finish. The underside of the trigger plate at the front screw has shallow screwdriver tooling, the flanks of the hammer have freckling, the barrel has a few tiny marks but none grab attention. The fit and finish is outstanding, the barrel has a deep blue and the receiver has shifted to plum. The bolt has some wear on the blue portions, the body has light wear, the rifle was probably not used very often in its life. The screws have strait slots with light tooling. Overall, this rifle rates in about Excellent condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The bolt slides with fluidity, the trigger is light and crisp, it allows for adjustment via screw. It has a sliding safety mounted on the right rear of the receiver. We did not fire this rifle.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: The rifle comes with a two piece twist-off scope base and ring system, holding a Leupold scope, described above in Optics.

Our Assessment: Sako first started making rifles with FN Mauser actions in 1946, and finally settled on 3 different length actions that changed designations over the years. This is the first one we've seen that was imported by Harrington & Richardson, the famous Worcester Massachusetts manufacturer who we believe barreled this beauty for .17/223 when it got to the U.S., the other offering was in .17 Remington. .17/223 is reported to be able to reach velocities of 4,000 feet per second, a damn fine round and rifle to fire it through if you want to go on extended hikes or bring a young one along. Pre-Garcia rifles in nice condition are almost always find themselves priced beyond the reach of the shooters but if a reloader wanted to try out a new caliber, this would be the rifle to start with; the Leupold scope was a great choice, it is going to make hunting in low light easier than with the naked eye!

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred in California.
