Sako 85 Varmint

The Sako 85 Varmint rifle is a long-range hunting rifle for small to medium game, built to deliver pinpoint accuracy for hunting and target shooting. Its heavy, free-floating barrel diminishes vibration and recoil, and makes it easy to zoom in and stay on target. The Varmint rifle stock is made of walnut, enhancing both comfort and accuracy. In addition, it features an extra wide, flat-bottomed beavertail fore-end and a more pronounced pistol grip for a better bench shooting position.

Features

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.

Heavy barrel

A heavy barrel and a wide flat bottom fore-end enable steady shooting on sandbags.

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.

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.
