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

    Hello Members,
    Did the AV with the “fishbone” checkering s/n 570xxx have the palm swell and the Sako No. 4 trigger?
    Just looking at one now.
    Thanks - Jay

    No palm swell, but it probably had the #4 trigger.

    The #4 trigger is usually associated with having a single stock crossbolt under the front receiver ring. The later "Tikka" trigger is usually associated with having a second crossbolt just in front of the trigger guard. These features are not necessarily always consistent, so the only way to know for certain is to remove the action from the stock to look at it (but if you've compared enough of them you might be able to tell from the appearance of the finger lever itself which is probably a little different one from the other).

    For a brief period right before Sako switched to the "Hunter" style stock (the one with the palm swell) for the late A-series they used the traditional Finnbear-style stock on the A-V, but modified the checkering on the forearm of the standard grade to use no cross checkering, so the triangles look a little like "fishbone". I tend to call them "herringbone".

    Here is an example:
