    Not sure if the Model 85 Magnum size action is threaded the same as an AV, but I do know the bolt face is different. Not sure how the diameters match up either. That and possible feed rail modifications, on top of indexing & headspacing the take off barrel to your AV action, makes that caliber switch less appealing than others, IMHO.

    The threads are different. The 85 thread is 1''-16UN. AV thread is much shorter and has bigger OD, not sure what standard thread it is. Not compatible in any case.
