    There is no such thing as an AVIII. It can only be an AIII or an AV. Based on the solid red recoil pad, I'd say it's an AV. They were made from 1981 to 1991. It is the standard sporter & appears to have seen little use. The rings are Millets & have the adapters that allow them to clamp directly to the action dovetails. With the Leupold scope it should make a fine hunting rifle. It's value is based on a host of factors, but boils down to what a willing seller & a willing buyer agree to. You can find a range of "asking" prices on the gun auction sale sites.

    A "fair" price for a rifle varies tremendously from country to country, and even varies from place to place within a country. It is often dependent on the caliber, which may be more or less in demand in a certain place (a .22-250 isn't very good for Alaskan bears and a .416 Rem isn't very good for Texas whitetails.)

    It seems that the .25-06 is one of the faster sellers in a Sako and may bring a bit of a premium over more common calibers. As paulson says, the rifle looks in excellent condition and its Leupold scope is a good match for such a hunting rifle. In the U.S. that package would probably sell somewhere north of $1,000 USD. That is what, about $1,300 CDN? It could be worth more or less, but I would consider that figure a reasonable ballpark.
