Sako 85 (2006)

In 2006, which was ten years after the previous large launch of Sako hunting rifles, a new Sako 85 range was introduced into the market. It was largely inspired by the Sako 75. The majority of the changes were based on the new manufacturing techniques, especially in relation to the manufacturing of the main components. The Sako 85 range has six different lock sizes to ensure optimal calibre operation. Other changes to the weapon, such as improved lock control, the so-called “stick safety” of the magazine and the forced feeding of cartridges, were made on the basis of the feedback.
