    Is this a 75?
    advertised as a 'III'

    I'd say so. Did they mean Action III ie 243/7mm-08/308 etc?
    Sako 75 6.5x55mm-Z6i 3-18x50. MauserM12 .308-SIII 6-24x50. Beretta 690 III Field 12b.

    Would need a better photo of the bolt. My initial reaction is that it's not a 75. Maybe an L579?

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    The chequering's wrong for a L579 or M591

    Again the chequer in gives it away as a sako 75.

    You saw that in Holts as well, then? It won't feed your BR. For sure.

    £100 says it will....

    I had one in my hands feeding dummy 6mmBR rounds with 105gr bullets
    fed perfectly
    not even a hook up...

    I think it's both a 75 and a III, as folk are suggesting.

    The chequering matches my Sako 75 but I thought the bolt looked like it had a bend in it but no, it's just the way it's lit so the bolt matches mine too.

    If it looks like a 75 & it smells like a 75.....

    Definitely a 75 from the lock on the rear of the bolt shroud. Can't be certain of 'Action111' but looks like a short action ie 308 family.
