Have A friend that has a Sako in 7mm Rem. Mag. It has less than 40 rounds through it, HE said its a model AV. I dont have my Blue book with me. Could you give me a ball park figure on the value?

Or could it be more like a Sako 75? its about 10 to 12 years old
24" Brl.

Thanks in advance for your help!

The Standard Catalog of Firearms says the Mod. 75 came out in March of 1997.If it's a Hunter Model it's worth $600.00 in excellent condition.You need to give more information for a more accurate price.

Thanks ATF- My Info is fuzzy that I had got from my buddy.
After he told me it's a Model A5, I though he had meant an AV model.
I only know of A1, A2, A3 models. I think I have to look at it again,

I had seen it only once about 4 years ago. But it had the same beauty
as a Weatherby MK V.

Thanks!!!!

I see the A-V Deluxe models go in roughly the $900 -- $1200 range, depending on caliber, used in excellent condition. The deluxe's have very nice walnut stocks with lots of figure and checkering, a very deep blue, engraved trigger guard and floorplate, etc.

Look at this to compare: http://www.GunBroker.com/auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=5136932

BTW . . . A-V, AV, A5 -- "V" is the roman numeral for "5". Yes, the Sako 75's do refer to action length by I, III, IV, and V -- but if the rifle is as old as you say, it ain't a 75. I could be wrong, but I don't believe this applies for the older models. For instance, I have a Sako Deluxe AV in .30-06, which if it were a Sako 75 it would be a IV. I also have a Sako AIII in .308 as well as .270 (which in the 75 is a IV).

Thanks Sundowner!
That helps a ton! The pic is about what I remember it looking like.
My buddy needs the money so I wanted to give him a fair price for it.
Im sure its a shooter to,I Never had a Sako before but hey first time for everything!

The Rifle is in 7mm It would fill a gap in my over stuffed collection
some where between my 22's or my 45-120's

Thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You won't be disappointed by a Sako when it comes to shooting. Not only do they shoot well, they are easy on the eyes. You'll be hard pressed to find a Remington that compares. Enjoy!!!
