    There is a L461 on GI for $700 they usually go for around $500. It is overpriced. The L46 had 10 bidders last time I checked. At that price it would almost be cheaper to buy a used L46 in 222 and pull the barrel, sell it and the stock and move on with whatever project you had in mind for the action. Again at $700 I think this is a bit overpriced.

    Anything that has a reserve on it, on GunBroker, is usually overpriced. It wasn't met, so it didn't sell. I think the bidders were about right stopping at $700. I've never seen a pristine L46 action for sale before & as gowyo mentioned, the receiver sight being worth $100+ makes $700 not so far out of line. The seller even said he would deduct if a buyer didn't want the sight. It will be back up for bids & it will be interesting what it actually sells for.

    Sight cost have been all over the place. I have seen good ones go for as low as $80. Dreamers ask $150 and up. So it pays to shop around. Never the less, you have to ask yourself, is this something I have to have and will use or is it something that might be nice to have?

    There are multiple sights on Ebay with bids under $100. Some are under $50. Granted bidding isn't finished but if you need one you just might get lucky.
