    Finaly home in the safe. I bought this " by phone". So good when you can trust a seller.

    Cool! I've never seen a receiver marked with "Oy Sako Ab" over the "Rihiimaki". (However, just because "I've never seen it" doesn't mean there aren't lots of them out there.)

    Can you get ammunition or components for it in Norway?

    Yes, ammunition is no problem. But more difficult to get the bullets. I was lucky and got 300 bullets from a "privat". I will try to buy from Finland.

    Stone, must be the earlier ones that are stamped that way. Mine has it (#2663), and also a gas vent through the second "i" in Rihimaki.
    Norway.375, is your magazine stamped 7x33?

    Just as a sidebar for everyone's info, Oy (Osakeyhtiö) and Ab (Aktiebolag) are the Finnish and Swedish abbreviations for "share company," the equivalent of "Incorporated." In Finland, both Finnish and Swedish are official languages, and many signs and other forms of information are bilingual. Most English speakers would find "yhtiö" (company) virtually unpronounceable.

    Right you are, Iceberg. I've seen the Sako company often represented as "Oy Sako AB", just that I've not seen it before stamped on a receiver. I checked my oldest L46 (SN in the 5,000's) and found only "Rihiimaki" and the serial number. Unlike BSmith's rifle, the "Rihiimaki" is located above the vent hole.

    When you compare several of these early L-46's you'll find numerous small variations in their configurations and markings. Each Sako rifle from the 1940's was a nearly unique item.

    Thanks for that photo, Norway.375. It took the second photo for me to realize that there was no gas vent hole in the front receiver ring on these two early L-46's!
