    Are L46 and L461 barrels interchangeable or does this require modifications to install the 46 barrel to the 461 receiver?
    Thank you

    I believe the L46 & the L461 used the same barrel thread but any time you changes barrels, even if they are from the same model, some modification is required to properly index & headspace the barrel. Any differences in contours may also require barrel channel modification to the stock as well. Switching barrels is more than just unscrewing one & screwing another back on.

    I would certainly leave this project in the hands of a qualified gunsmith. Since early sako barrels are hard to come by I’m looking at all possible options. Thanks
