Sako 85 Brown Bear

Sako has added an everyman's safari rifle into the Sako 85 product family with the introduction of the Brown Bear in action size XL. This extends the calibre selection of the Bear series to include 416 Rigby, 450 Rigby and 500 Jeffrey. The laminate stock has been redesigned to accommodate larger calibers, while the barrel profile has been redefined for the new calibres.


About the Bear Series

The Grizzly, Black Bear, Brown Bear and Kodiak are purpose-oriented weapons for bear hunters. All 4 Bear models feature adjustable fast target acquisition iron sights and a detachable staggered two-row steel magazine with TLC, preventing unintentional magazine release. All can be top-loaded and have controlled cartridge feed, an adjustable single stage trigger and a barrel band for front swivel  plus mechanical case ejection. They are also equipped with integral dovetail rails for secure scope mounting.

Features

Brown laminate and black steel

Its brown, matte laminated stock and black steel come together to deliver a tough, meaty yet beautiful appearance. These hard wearing materials handle the higher calibres effortlessly; justifying it ‘Bear’ label.

New XL action

Extending the range of calibres available to now also include .416 Rigby, .450 Rigby and .500 Jeffrey.

Action

Sako 85 actions come in six different sizes (CSA), providing reliable functioning for each calibre. 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.

Barrel

The 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 the human eye. Twist rates are chosen for each calibre to optimise accuracy and bullet performance.

Magazine

The staggered, two-row magazine is made of stainless steel. The detachable magazine can also be loaded through the ejection port. The Total Control Latch prevents accidental magazine release.

Safety

The special two-way 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.

Sights

Most Sako 85 models with a blued finish on the barrel are available with either standard or optional adjustable iron sights. The front bead is adjustable in elevation and the rear blade in windage.

Stock

The ergonomics of Sako 85’s walnut and synthetic stocks are built for an optimal shooting posture. The excellent balance and smooth bolt operation of Sako 85 rifles enable fast, straight and accurate operation.

Trigger

The weight of pull of the single-stage Sako 85 trigger unit is adjustable from 1 to 2kg. An optional single-set trigger is available for most Sako 85 models. Most Sako 85 rifles have an extremely durable, all-steel trigger guard that protects the trigger.
