    I have an L61R NIB action only I bought with the intention of building a rifle. I’m thinking of selling it, can anyone give me an idea of what it’s worth? Any history or other relavent information would also be appreciated. Thanks for your help.

    Even though Sako referred to their long action internally as the L61R even after the modifications done to the AIII & AV, your action is more correctly called an AV (A5) with a magnum boltface or as your pic shows, an AV MAG. It differs from the L61R by having a shroud on the rear of the bolt & the rear tang is approximately 1/4" longer than the L61R. Knowing it has the magnum boltface & the longer tang would be info any potential buyer should be made aware of. You can get info by perusing the forum section on Long Action Sakos & looking for threads specific to the AV.

    Also , this is a later AV action with the Tikka style trigger. I'ts not fully adjustable like the old A4 triggers. However a bix'n Andy trigger might be ready made for this action. That is if you want to spend 400 plus dollars on one.
