    I am not a Sako owner, wish I was. I am assisting an elderly friend dispose of his gun collection. One item is a custom Sako AV in 30-338 caliber. The barrel on the rifle is no good but the action works perfectly although a little rough looking. I believe it is an L61R/AV action with synthetic stock. Would appreciate any assistance with valuing this item as it would require a barrel replacement. Thank you in advance.

    Sounds like it is worth only what the action (presumably needing refinishing) would bring. Maximum would be about $500. Others may have varying opinions.

    Sounds a bit high to me. A nice used AV action would probably bring $3-400; knock off 100 bucks for polish and reblue. I don't know if the magnum bolt face is a plus or a minus. Stock might be worth $50-100 if it isn't beat up. I don't know how much demand there is for used synthetic stocks. It also depends on whether that's a factory Sako stock or aftermarket. If it's a factory stock or a McMillan it's worth something; anything else, not so much. A lot of unknowns there.

    Thank you for your replies. I suspected the value would be minimal. May just build my own Sako.
