    Here is a not too shabby L469 HB in .222 Rem Mag custom stock in English walnut by a top craftsman. With most custom work it's the little details that make the big difference. The wood has much more color and character than shows in the photos. Scopes is Vintage 24X Redfield 3200 and the rig shots as good as it looks.

    Hello Litetrigger 1,

    What a beautiful rifle. Is the butt plate made of steel. Do you have the original stock?. Also one of my wish for calibres.

    Mr. Blackjack, you have a good eye. Yep, the buttplate is steel. The curved shape with top tab makes it a challenge to fit but adds a classy look. Another classy touch, which may be somewhat overkill, are the sling studs embedded in ebony, as sh DSC00228.JPG DSC00229.JPG own in attached photo.

    About a month ago I posted the above pics of my custom Sako .222 Rem Mag with vintage Redfield target scope. Happily, since then I finally located a set of original Sako extra high rings so I could mount a Leupold 6.5-20X scope, which has been a considerable improvement in looks and performance DSC_0185.JPG DSC_0181.JPG .

    Amen to that Rick. I think this L469 is one of the most beautiful rifles ever posted. I am the most guilty for not posting photo's, but I hope to change that soon. I have been looking for a L469 over here in England Gt. Britain for many years. I missed one at an auction in the north of England around 2013 and have regretted that miss ever since. Any idea how many L469's were made? and over how many years? Once more Lite Trigger 1 thanks for posting your fabulous L469!
