85 BAVARIAN CARBINE

Walnut Full-Length Stock with Rosewood Schnabel, Blued

BUILT WITH DEMANDING DESIGN CRITERIA, BASED ON TRADITION AND INNOVATION.

The Sako 85 Bavarian Carbine is developed for hunters who appreciate a high-quality carrying hunting rifle made of beautiful walnut and black steel. The Sako 85 Bavarian Carbine always comes with adjustable iron sights and a single set trigger.

FULL STOCK

The traditional full-length stock features a rosewood Schnabel.

BAVARIAN STOCK DESIGN

The classic checkering pattern of the Sako 85 Bavarian provides functionality and traditional looks. Other characteristics of this classic model are the Bavarian cheek piece and comb.

ACTION

Sako 85 actions come in six different sizes (CSA), providing reliable functioning for each caliber. 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.

BARREL

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 caliber to optimize accuracy and bullet performance. Sako 85 barrels, blued or stainless, have a non-reflecting, satin-like surface – with the exception of the Sako 85 Deluxe and Safari models that have a highly polished finish.

MAGAZINE

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.

SAFETY

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.

SIGHTS

Most of the Sako 85 models with a blued finish on the barrel are available with either standard or optional adjustable iron sights. The front bead is adjustable in elevation and the rear blade in windage.

STOCK

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.

TRIGGER

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. An exception to this are the Finnlight and Carbonlight models, which have a lightweight hard-anodized aluminium trigger guard.
