Acquired what I think is a fairly early L46 in 22 Hornet today (SN 4568) in the standard sporter configuration. Looks original to me, front sight with hood, "wing" safety on left side, standard butt plate, swivels. What I know about Sakos fills a fairly small page but nothing jumps out at me as incorrect. I was concerned that the receiver might have been drilled as it didn't have standard Sako rings but the bases are Weaver 66/67s and the receiver has not been drilled. I've had a number of Sakos in various calibers over the years but this is the first one in 22 Hornet and probably the oldest one. It needs to be cleaned up a bit but stock has only minor handling marks. Bluing is good with some small spots, initially thought there was some corrosion on the top of the barrel but that turned out to be surface crud and came right off. Came with a throwaway scope but that is easily replaced. Here are pictures (of the left side anyway) and I can take more tomorrow if needed. Any thoughts on issues I should have noticed but didn't? I know we get tired of the "what's it worth" question but I am curious. Over on the S&W collectors forum I usually tell folks "its worth what you paid for it." That said, I paid $700 and figured it had to be worth that, especially if it shoots minute of coyote/turkey. Thanks for any comments and assistance.
