BUILT WITH DEMANDING DESIGN CRITERIA, BASED ON TRADITION AND INNOVATION.
The traditional Sako 85 Deluxe combines an attractive, timeless appearance with superior Sako accuracy and reliability. The warmth of the high-grade walnut stock, rosewood details and classic checkering give this fine rifle its distinctive look. Highly polished metal parts, fixed magazine and the Sako pistol grip inlay are just a few of the custom features of this elegant rifle.
The design of the 85 Deluxe focuses on fine details. A golden color is embedded in the trigger next to polished deep black steel surfaces – the perfect design for a Deluxe look. The fixed magazine with hinged, polished floorplate holds five cartridges.
Beautifully grained selected high-grade walnut stock with traditional checkering pattern and red recoil pad is oil-finished. Optional high-gloss lacquered stock is also available.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
