    Wow....what a question. Strickly IMHO, most Sako collectors seem to prefer the L61 then the AV and the 691....but that really depends on what YOU want to collect. As a tool, then are all great, because after all they are all SAKOS!!

    I agree that it is a personal preference, I myself love levers and will vote for the FINNWOLF. But it's hard not to love all the SAKO's and their accuracy.

    Strange question, but I'll answer it anyway. The AIII!!!, with regard to long actions. Sorry I didn't see it listed. Evidently you are not aware of it.

    You can not go wrong with either especially an AV in a deluxe they are incredible rifles. You know what that's a hard question to answer they are all great rifles but I prefer the latter two in a deluxe and the L61r in what ever. So maybe I also really appreciate the L61r just not to sure the more I think about it. You just have to try them out and you will probably get more confused they are so nice.

    I like the early L61r with the three lug bolts best. But I think its more of a factor of liking the earlier 'thin' style stocks best which are associated with these models. There ll go though!

    AV has the longer tang and a great adjustable trigger. I also like the bolt shroud, so my vote goes to AV

    m995- If you are serious, I happen to have a few duplicates that I would consider trading for m995s in calibers I am looking for. PM if interested. Sakojim.

    m995- Joke or not , m995 discussion is a good way to start my day. Or for that matter most any Sako model will perk my interest. Have a good one. Sakojim

    I would have preferred the 995's to have a full top strap like the 42 & 22. Going up in weight over a 5 pound barrel has been a concern of mine.
