Sako L46 "Riihimaki" Mannlicher .222
There is lots to like about this L46 Mannlicher (full stock) rifle, and only a few minor detractions. It is in wonderful condition for such a venerable rifle and even retains its sight hood. The original buttplate has been replaced with a professionally installed pad (LOP 13 3/4"), and there are holes D&T in the top of the dovetails for non-Sako mounts. The holes are filled with brass-colored filler screws, but we would recommend replacing them with blued screws for better look. They will cover, anyway, if a scope mount is used. This rifle also has the forged bottom metal which is much more desirable than the previous stamped bottom metal. Bore on the 23.6" rifle-length barrel is excellent, and rifle is all-original except for the two things pointed out. A fully original Riihimaki Mannlicher in this condition would sell for a lot more, but due to the extra holes and added pad we can offer this one at a very attractive price. Remember, they're not making these anymore!
