Dad bought this rifle in the early '60's to control coyotes in the Texas Panhandle. He missed the first few he shot at because he would lead them too much and the "Triple Deuce" would zip right past their nose. Now I'm trying to identify it's model and get an idea of when it was made. It's stamped "SAKO Riihimaki n 39611" on the side of the receiver and "Cal..222" on the barrel. My problem is that according to tikka.fi/sites/default/files/SakoOldmodelsNumbering.pdf Model -- First date -- First number -- Last number -- Last date L46 ja L469 -- 25.09.1946 --1 --- 57000 --- 25.09.1962 L461 --- 26.09.1962 --- 57001 ---134252 --- 27.12.1973 Am I correct in thinking the serial number puts it in the later part of the "L46 ja L469" production? Is there source of manuals/information on caring for the rifle? It's been in a case it's whole life but I'm sure fresh oil would be good for it. Thanks for the help. And the local ground hogs (woodchucks) need to find a good hiding hole!
