Calling the Sako 85 Hunter Stainless a standard rifle is a serious understatement. It is a rifle brimming with world-class Sako features, including the legendary Sako accuracy, smooth bolt operation and perfect balance, making it a valued rifle to both own and shoot. The walnut stock provides a warmth missing from its synthetic and laminated counterparts while the stainless components and coated barrel lend a classy look to this pointable and surprisingly light-weight model.
Sako 85 rifles are built with demanding design criteria, based on tradition and innovation, allowing you to choose between different models for the given hunting or training purpose. The Sako 85 series offers several stock styles and barrel options. These options, combined with a comprehensive calibre selection, will give you the ultimate bolt-action rifle. When you buy a Sako, you’re buying a high-quality rifle that has undergone thorough quality assessments that ensure its lasting value from father to son.
The stock features a cheek piece and an asymmetric palm swell, chequered grips and oil finish.
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.
Sako 85 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 an optical fine-tuning instrument: the human eye. Twist rates are chosen for each calibre to optimize accuracy and bullet performance.
The staggered, two-row magazine of the Sako 85 is made of stainless steel. The detachable magazine can also be loaded through the ejection port. The Total Control Latch (patent pending) of the Sako 85 prevents accidental magazine release.
The special two-way Sako 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 stock 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 2 kg (2–4 lbs). An optional single-set trigger is available for most Sako 85 models. All Sako 85 rifles have an extremely durable, all-steel trigger guard that protects the trigger.
