    Hi Jack

    I don't have too many Sako dovetail actions where the receivers have been drilled. When I get on that has been misrepresented and I like the thing I usually just put a set of Sako or Leupold mounts on the thing and get on down the road. If you can refresh my memory with the post I can be more specific with my answer.

    I reckon it was the one drilled on the left hand side of the action for side mount - Griffen & Howe from memory?

    Hello Sako Lovers,

    Can you tell me the year Sako changed the calibre to .25 - 20 WCF from 6, 3 X 33R? Also when was production ceased in .25 - 20 WCF calibre?

    Good Afternoon Sako Folk,

    Does any one know how many L46 - 6,3 X 33R's were made? And when did the L46 - 7 X 33's go out of production? Thanks!

    B.J.: Here is the answer to your question, lifted from this thread: https://sakocollectors.com/forum/threads/new-contest-l46-25-20s.12979/page-2#post-68495

    Here is the year by year production:

    1948 -- 1
    1949 -- 159
    1950 -- 61
    1951 -- 65
    1952 -- 117
    1953 & 1954 -- 155
    1955 -- 70
    1956 -- 56
    1957 -- 5
    1958 -- 0
    1959 -- 0
    1960 -- 1
    Total = 690

    In that thread I mention that the records listed both designations, ".25-20" and "6,3x33", at the top of each page, so there is no way to know how many rifles in which years were marked with which designation.

    As to the last 7x33's, a number of them were produced during the "second run" of L46's in 1964-65 -- and some were even Deluxes.
