    Will a sako 75 short action stock fit a short mag action? Or are the stocks specific for the different action lengths?

    They are specific, but the III action may also fit in a SM action stock. I've not had the two side by side to confirm however. By "short" I assume you mean the "I" (roman numeral I) action size. The III is the medium action.

    Thanks. Any chance you saw how much lighter a composite factory stock would be relative to the laminated version?

    Other than knowing a laminated stock is the heaviest of any type stock, I can't help you there.

    The action length and screw spacing are identical between the III and SM action sizes. But the SM is 34 mm wide and III is 32 mm, so there will be rather large gaps in the action inletting. Also the magazine well and bottom metal space are really wide for size III parts.

    Then I have a supplementary question. Are the inletting of action IV (3006) the same as action V /7mm rem mag..)

    if not, what's the difference.
