Since the 1920's, Finnish manufacturer Sako have gained an enviable reputation for designing and building rock-solid, reliable rifles with a Nordic eye for clean lines and ease of use. The flagship Sako 85 centrefire range boast the world's most advanced turnbolt action in 6 different action sizes, each tailored to the calibre, while the A7 series gives hunters access to medium priced Sako quality by optimising available action sizes and parts. Rimfire shooters are catered for via the Sako Quad series which offer a high-quality platform for multiple, interchangeable calibres. The soon-to-be shipped Finnfire II is the successor to the classic Finnfire - perhaps the most highly regarded rimfire rifle ever.
This Sako rifle is a real weatherproof tack-driver, designed to deliver the .308 bullet with pinpoint accuracy over distance. Fitted with a heavy weight, free-floating barrel, the varmint model is best used off a rest or bipod with a large objective, higher magnification scope and quality moderator. The already sweet Sako 85 trigger is enhanced with a 'set' function in this model to provide real-world target performance in a hunting package. The Sako 85 Varmint Laminate Stainless is a firm favourite with Allcocks staff who use it in both .204 and .223 calibres.
