Mine had a Canjar, but am unsure if they are still in business. They look like a Mod 70 Winchester.

thanks, when I google Canjar it seems like they are out of buisness.

Lasse: My gunsmith was able to do an excellent trigger job, using all the existing factory parts: 2# and breaks like a piece of glass. That, on the older 222 serial# 36xxx. Was so impressed he then did the 222 Magnum, serial#48xxx, and it too turned out excellent, so, the factory trigger may be "tuneable" by someone with the skills.

lasse: I spoke too soon. What was once a really good tuned factory trigger just recently ( seems like a few days after my posting the msg. about how great it is), has developed problems. When gently closing the bolt chambering a loaded round, the firing pin will follow the bolt down. Bolt must then be re-cocked to fire. Tried it with new, unfired Lapua brass thinking it was related to the brass: same problem. Had it checked by the g'smith yesterday, and the engagement surfaces, one on top of the trigger body and the other on the stud that hangs down from the top, are worn and rounded off. It's like having 2 balls contacting and expecting them to hold their position. We also found the metal to be easily cut with a jewelers file, showing that it's softer than could be expected for these critical parts. So, I also have a Sako L-46 trigger problem now. Keep us advised on what you learn. Thanks, Frank D. Shuster

Don't know if it'll work on the L46, but Timney is making a replacement trigger for the L461 that seems pretty good. I got 3 of them from Lock,Stock & Barrel. Check it out.
