The L469 was a "stretch" L46 action created late in the L46 life cycle to accommodate the .222 cartridge. I have seen them marked as L46, L469, or with no model number at all. Regardless of markings, any detachable-mag short-action Sako in .222 Magnum is an L469, for the simple reason that the cartridge won't fit in an L46 action. I have seen L469 rifles in sporter, Mannlicher-style carbine, and heavy barrel configurations. (I have a sporter and a carbine.) I have three questions for whoever can answer them: First, how many of each configuration were built, and second, were there any other configurations, such as a rifle with a Mannlicher-style full stock and a rifle-length barrel? And finally, every L469 I have ever seen has had the late style stock with a raised cheekpiece, as was carried over into the L461 series. Has anyone seen one with the earlier style classic cheekpiece? I imagine the carbine is by far the rarest of the three configurations, as I see the other two for sale quite often and I've seen very, very few carbines. Of course, if there were any configurations other than the three I've mentioned, they are undoubtedly very rare indeed. And if you have an L469 in any configuration, let's see photos, and tell us how they shoot. I'll start it off with my two. Both are excellent shooters, but very fussy about ammo. Carbine, s/n 48xxx, no model number marked, just "Sako Riihimäki." Leupold 4-12x scope. Best group under 1/2" with Sako ammo. Sporter, s/n 55xxx, marked L46. Pecar-Berlin 4-10x scope. Best group around 5/8" with Lapua ammo.
