The Sako 85 Varmint is a long-range hunting rifle built to deliver pinpoint accuracy for hunting and target shooting. The heavy, free-floating barrel diminishes vibration and recoil, and makes it easy to zero in and stay on target. Selected walnut used in Varmint rifle stock enhances both comfort and accuracy, and features an extra wide, flat-bottomed beavertail fore-end and more pronounced pistol grip for better bench shooting position.
Total Control Latch - The Total Control Latch patent pending secures the magazine which can be detached only when simultaneously pushed upwards while the latch is pulled back. This can be performed simply with one hand, but cannot happen unintentionally or accidentally by contact with natural obstacles.
Controlled Feed - Unique to the Sako 85 are three lugs in the bolt, combined with a two-row staggered magazine and the controlled round feed. The bolt raceway boasts f ve guiding surfaces which results in smooth and fast bolt cycling. This translates into fast and accurate repeat shots.
Safety System - Sakos 2-way safety locks both the trigger and the bolt handle, as well as blocking the f ring pin. The unique bolt release button in front of the safety catch allows loading or removal of a cartridge from the chamber with the safety engaged.
Trigger System - The trigger system is adjustable from the magazine well it comes set at the factory at approximately 1.5 kg, but can be adjusted between 1 and 2 kg weight of pull. The detachable magazine can also be loaded through the ejection port. The magazine follower is made of aluminium, to ensure faultless operation.
