Versatility is the mark of true excellence. The Sako 85 rifles are built with demanding design criteria, based on a long tradition and newest innovations, allowing you to choose the best option for any hunting or training purpose.
The Sako 85 rifle range includes several models with several stock styles and barrels. These options, combined with comprehensive caliber selection, will give you the ultimate bolt-action rifle: accurate, prestigious and durable. When you choose the Sako 85, you choose value that lasts from father to son.
Long-range hunting is extremely demanding. There is no room for compromises when you are shooting game from long distances: your rifle and other gear have to be match grade in order to guarantee a vital hit. If you are looking to shoot far, the Sako 85 Long Range rifle serves you well. This rifle has been designed for long-range hunting in particular. Specific details, such as a muzzle brake, 26” match grade barrel, double sling studs and a stock designed for the prone position, guarantee that you will hit your target even from extreme distances.
Features of the Sako 85 Long Range Include:
The Sako 85 Long Range has a flat fore-end that provides better support while shooting without a bipod. The double studs enable simultaneous attachment of both the sling and bipod.
The flush design muzzle brake was added to reduce the recoil. Muzzle brake will make it easier to keep the target in sight after the shot.
Sako 85 actions come in six different sizes (CSA), providing reliable functioning for each caliber. All Sako 85 models feature controlled cartridge feed (RCS) to eliminate double feed or cartridge jams. The turn-bolt handle places the hand in a natural position during bolt operation, which allows for rapid repeated firing.
Sako 85 barrels are manufactured with a passion for craftsmanship and the very best knowledge of Sako. Barrel blanks are drilled, honed, cold- hammer-forged, finished and finally individually inspected by an optical fine-tuning instrument: the human eye. Twist rates are chosen for each caliber to optimize accuracy and bullet performance. Sako 85 barrels, blued or stainless, have a non-reflecting, satin-like surface – with the exception of the Sako 85 Deluxe and Safari models that have a highly polished finish.
The staggered, two-row magazine of the Sako 85 is made of stainless steel. The detachable magazine can also be loaded through the ejection port. The Total Control Latch (patent pending) of the Sako 85 prevents accidental magazine release.
The special two-way Sako safety locks both the trigger and the bolt handle. The unique bolt release button of the Sako Safety System allows you to load or remove a cartridge from the chamber while the safety is engaged.
The weight of pull of the single-stage Sako 85 trigger unit is adjustable from 1 to 2 kg (2–4 lbs). An optional single-set trigger is available for most Sako 85 models. All Sako 85 rifles have an extremely durable, all-steel trigger guard that protects the trigger. An exception to this is the Finnlight and Carbonlight models, which have a lightweight hard-anodized aluminium trigger guard.
