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.
