    Similar to my post yesterday (thank you to those who responded), I bought a virtually new AIII (.30-06) on an auction site. Stock was broken in shipment (don't ask me how the gun was packed by seller).
    AS the action is literally unfired, I would like to complete purchase, but the negotiations (with seller and carrier) will begin tomorrow.

    Wondering if an L691 stock will fit this action.

    Also, wondering what should I budget for gunsmith fees to make fit 100%


    Thanking you in advance.

    No the L691 front recoil block is a different design than L61R and A series. See photo showing inletting differences of the block and other differences. Top is AV I posted last night and bottom is L691 of same caliber to show differences. Again a good gunsmith is unlikely to attempt since as you can see the visual differences, not to mention dimensional differences. Suggest you keep looking for the correct stock and eBay is source that I have used for Sako parts and stocks when needed.

    Thank you so much. I was literally just looking at photos of both stocks (on ebay no less) and came to the same conclusion. I appreciate your insight and assistance.
