Thread: Donor action

  1. #1

    Donor action

    Which would make the best donor action for a 280 Improved.
    Tikka M690 or Sako 75 IV?
    Or any other recommendations.
    Current battery, Air Arms TX200 MK3 .177, Hawke Vantage SF 3-12x40, Anschutz 1427B .22LR Sporterised Biathlon rifle, A-TEC wave mod Nikon 4.5-14x40, Tikka M595 .222Rem Leupold 6.5-20x40 LR. Howa 1500 APC .308win Varmint Nikko FFP 6-24x50 Wildcat Evo. Sauer 202 Classic XT .243Win Leupold VX3 4.5-14x50 Wildcat Evo.

    Tikka 690 should feed perectly from its single stack mag.
    The 3 lug bolt of the Sako 75 means that the bottom lug fouls the sharp shoulder of the top Ackley Improved cartridge in the magazine as the bolt is drawn back. You may be lucky, but a slight radius put on the bottom bolt lug on an AI chambered 75 I had didn't quite cure the problem and the barrel was removed and put onto a Tikka action. Said Tikka 590 works perfectly.
