The traditional-styled Sako 85 Deluxe combines an attractive and timeless appearance with accuracy and reliability Sako is famed for. Warmth of high grade walnut stock, rosewood details and classic checkering give this fine rifle its distinctive looks. Highly polished metal parts, fixed magazine, and a Sako pistol grip inlay are just a few of the custom features that Sako offers on this “standard” rifle.
This rifle’s design is focused on its fine details. A golden colour is embedded in the trigger next to polished deep black steel surfaces – delivering a truly deluxe look. The fixed magazine with hinged, polished floorplate holds five cartridges.
Beautifully grained selected high-grade walnut stock with traditional checkering pattern and red recoil pad is oil-finished. Optional high-gloss lacquered stock is also available.
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.
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 optimize accuracy and bullet performance.
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.
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.
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.
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.
