    I just purchased an A III / 270 winchester & was hoping to learn the differences between the R 61 model & the A III. My A III is a standard Finnbear showing handling marks on the stock. The intended purpose is a hunting rifle. I've gotten the Sako bug & now I'm on the hunt for a 7mm mag or 300 win mag.

    The only difference between a late model L61 and an AIII is the bolt shroud. Fully enclosed on the AIII.
