I bought one of the L46 Hornets from the recent North Dakota auction. I was mainly interested because it is a LH safety, which will add to my collection of LH safety L46. It isn't in just-out-of-the-box shape, but for a 70+ year-old rifle it is all-original and its condition would rate at least "nice" and nothing to be ashamed of. Shooting it was something of an afterthought, but I always like to try out even those Sakos that I acquired primarily as something to "own" rather than something to "shoot". So, I put a little 2-7 Leupold Compact on it and took it down to the range, bore sighted it, fired a couple of shots at 50 yards to center it, then tried it at 100 yards. The ammunition was plain old factory Remington 45 grain HP. To say I was pleased with the group would be an understatement. I'm sure it was partially luck, but it tells me that these original L46's were built to shoot and built to shoot well! I didn't bother trying to measure the group, but the black square is one inch on the outside and everybody knows what size an American 25 cent piece is, so 'nough said. I'll probably want to keep this little "Riihimaki", don't ya think?
