    I have a 7mm barrel. I believe it was cut down. The pictures show measurements. I would like to know which model it is. Please help!

    I don't think it is cut down. With the caliber printed horizontally on the barrel and having a length of just over 22 inches it would be consistent with a barrel from a later Sako Model A-V. Its thread would fit just about anything from the L61R through A-III, and I think Model 75-V. I'm no gunsmith, but I think that Remington 700's and several others use the same diameter and pitch thread. The length of the shank may not be adaptable to other brands depending on the action.

    Thanks for the help. I have some L61R and A-3 actions that will work with it. I am a little hung up on using parts that don't match, though. Will There be an issue of either of these actions fitting an A-V stock?

    The rear tang is about 1/4" longer on the AV, so using a L61R or AIII action will require that area of the stock to be filled in some manner.

    Thanks for the info. I may not want to mess with it then. I think I’d rather stick to building off of some of the actions I already have.
