Sako 85 Carbonlight

Weighing in at only 2.4kg, the Sako 85 Carbonlight is ideal for hunters after medium-sized game. You will find it exceptionally comfortable to carry, even on the longest of treks. In fact, it is the lightest rifle Sako has ever made. Light, durable and rigid, this high-end rifle is the epitome of perfection. Featuring a soft touch, carbon fibre stock with a right-hand palm swell and cheek piece, when you handle the Sako 85 Carbonlight you will feel the value of the materials and craftsmanship behind the design instantly.

The 2017 models also come with a left-handed option in 243 and 308.

Features

CFRP technology

The Sako 85 Carbonlight rifle is built using the same CFRP technology that is used in car and aerospace industries. This makes it extremely light, durable and rigid, resulting in a one-of-a-kind rifle.

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 optimize 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.

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.
