If you are looking to shoot far, the Sako 85 Long Range rifle will serve you very well. This rifle has been designed for long-range hunting in particular. Specific details, such as a muzzle brake, 26” match grade barrel, double sling studs and a stock designed for the prone position, guarantee that you will hit your target – even from extreme distances.
The Sako 85 Long Range has a flat fore-end that provides better support while shooting without a bipod. Double studs enable simultaneous attachment of both the sling and bipod.
Flush design muzzle brake has been added to reduce the recoil. The muzzle brake will also make it easier to keep the target in sights after the shot.
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 optimise 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.
