1. Hey All! Lately there has been more and more scammers on the forum board. They register and replies to members requests for guns and/or parts or other things. The reply contains a gmail or hotmail address or similar ”anonymous” email addresses which they want you to reply to. DO NOT ANSWER ANY STRANGE MESSAGES! They often state something like this: ”Hello! Saw your post about purchasing a stock for a Safari. KnuckleheadBob has one. Email him at: [email protected]” If you receive any strange messages: Check the status of whoever message you. If they have no posts and signed up the same day or very recently, stay away. Same goes for other members they might refer to. Check them too and if they are long standing members, PM them and ask if the message is legit. Most likely it’s not. Then use the report function in each message or post so I can kick them out! Beware of anything that might seem fishy! And again, for all of you who registered your personal name as username, please contact me so I can change it to a more anonymous username. You’d be surprised of how much one can find out about a person from just a username on a forum such ad our! All the best! And be safe! Jim

Sako AV bolt only closes in “fire” position?

  1. It’s also a single set trigger for what that’s worth.

    Have you used the single set function with this trigger? Can you explain how it works? I was not aware that Sako provided this trigger type from the factory until recently. I’ve never had one on my rifles, but the Fiberclass is new to me. I do think my AV has a crisp but stout trigger pull, 4 + Pounds to break. Now I wonder if mine is a single set as well.
    Does yours set by pressing the trigger forward?
    Was this a feature or option included to the A series rifles as a whole?

  3. You press it forward and it’s set. Then it is a hair trigger. I have dry fired it but didn’t use it at the range. I don’t know if it was an add on. I didn’t buy it new.

    What you got there is the Sako M90 trigger, which was used on some AVs and all of -91 series Sakos and is still used today with minor modifications and major value engineering. Also known as Tikka trigger, but I'm not 100% on board with that nomenclature.

    I'm fairly sure it is operating "as designed". At the base of the bolt handle is that kind of a ring of material that goes around the bolt body. I think this is what is hitting the safety pin and preventing it closing on safe. Later in the 75 series they added a little ramp cut on the bolt handle "ring", which allows the safety pin to be pushed down as the bolt is pushed forward.

    Thanks for shedding light on the trigger P04r.
    My AV Fiberclass (880xxx) has the same trigger, while my Grendel (Sako AII action) has a #4 with the blade as Kevin described.
