    Good evening Gents,

    I would sincerely appreciate some info on what my dad is about to pass down to me. It belonged to my gramps. I have no knowledge of firearms, but this has triggered my interest. I know my dad has always been very proud of this gun.

    Any info on both the rifle and scope will be appreciated. Estimated value? 20160516_183227.jpg 20160516_182917.jpg

    Looks to be in fine condition. the caliber is under the front bell of the scope. Looks like a L46 in 222 Remington made around '58. As for price, coming from your gramps, priceless. These don't come around often especially in that condition. I'd shoot it, you'll find it is a very accurate rifle. Not sure what you shoot in South Africa but I use one for coyotes. Have fun!

    Greetings PC 1984,

    Welcome to the Sako CC. If your rifle is a L46 .22 Hornet Calibre I would keep It forever. If the rifle is a L46 .222 Rem. I would keep It also. Your Grand Father has loved and looked after that beauty, so keep It and keep using It! A very desirable rifle.

    Very happy to pipe you aboard.

    Blackjack AKA Mike The Limey
