    AIII, AV are the same action but differs in length depending on cartridge.
    And I would get one of those...

    The AIII & the AV do NOT vary in length depending on the cartridge, but are simply L61R long actions with minor modifications. They are both long actions designed for 30-06 length rounds & the belted magnum rounds like the 7mm, 300 & 338. They are twin lug bolt actions with an internal magazine & hinged floorplate. The comparable Model 75 would be the IV & V size action. It has three forward lugs, offering a shorter bolt lift, & a detachable box magazine. More detail can be found in the forum section on Sako Long Actions. To eliminate confusion, the AIII & AV are action/model designations. The IV & the V stamped on the Model 75 denote the size of the action, as they came in I, III, & SM sizes as well.
