The Sako Quad Varmint is an excellent choice for hunting and bench-rest target shooting with its flat-bottomed extra wide fore-end and heavier barrel. You will find that the Sako Quad is no ordinary rimfire, it is a small bore hunting and training firearm that functions as its own system, complete with several options to choose between.
Sako's trailblazing innovation and out-of-the-box thinking lead to the design of interchangeable barrels. The barrel change on a Sako Quad only takes a few seconds: just insert a tool, turn it 3 full circles, and tilt the barrel upwards while pulling out the action. Then simply insert another barrel, and change calibre if you wish. This makes the Sako Quad extremely versatile – and its accuracy is phenomenal. Corresponding barrels have individual serial numbers.
It takes just a few seconds to change the barrel so you can change calibre. Simply, insert a tool, turn it 3 full circles, tilt the barrel upwards while pulling out the action, and then insert another barrel.
