    Is there any except for the longer top rail and on the sides?

    I suspect the A1 addresses the issue with lack of rigidity of the forend, in addition to the additional rail "real estate" (which I see as of limited value on this type of rifle).

    I have the a-1 in 300wm as a tactical target rifle and the rail is great for my long Nightforce scope and it fits a night vision push on scope quite well ,and besides it looks way better

    That last is a matter of opinion:)

    I never had any problems mounting any conventional scope on my SSG04. Never had any call for NV, but I'm sure the additional rail is helpful for that, if you need it.

    I have both in 300 win mag, and the stiffening of the stock of the A1 is HUGE! I have epoxied aluminum and carbon stiffners on my regular 04, and it's still nowhere near as stiff as the A1 out the box. I do suggest that you remove the side rail "saddle" and trim the sharp edges that are close to the barrel. Improved accuracy greatly. Barrel harmonics seemed to touch that "saddle" during firing cycle.
