    tikka m595/sako 591

    Could anyone enlighten me as to whether it is possible to transfer a sako 591 stock onto a tikka m595 action and how much work/inletting would be involved?

    Cheers

    It should be possible.... but the only bugbear might be the magazine area as the floorplate is slightly wider on the sako. Other than that they are very similar action-wise

    Thanks for the reply Stephen. Out of interest, how slightly is slightly? Would it have any effect other than from a cosmetic perspective?

    I can't remember off hand... but the tikka stock also has the cutout for the mag release catch remember. I can only suggest putting the two side by side and comparing them.

    Anyone else have any input/experience to put into the mix?

    Don't bother. The tang area on the two rifles is completely different, the action screw spacings may be different although I can't recall offhand. Theres also likely to be differences in the action profile i.e. the depth of the magazine box etc. Theres loads of 595 stocks about. Wait till the Midland and find one already inlet. You'll save yourself hours of wasted time.
