The Sako 85 Finnlight rifle is for those who foray deep into the wild to reach their goal. With its light weight, you will find the Finnlight is ideal for mountain trails and long-distance treks. Do not be mistaken though, this is no lightweight – the Sako 85 Finnlight is a full-sized, high-performance rifle. Its fluted barrel is just one of the many features that makes it an ideal trimmed-light rifle. The Sako 85 Finnlight is also an excellent choice for women and younger shooters.

Sako 85 Finnlight has a reinforced black polymer stock with a soft grey pattern on its grip surfaces and a Soft Touch surface treatment.
The specially engineered fluted barrel of the Sako 85 Finnlight reduces rifle weight and also accelerates the barrel cooling.
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.
The 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 the human eye. Twist rates are chosen for each calibre to optimize accuracy and bullet performance.
The staggered, two-row magazine is made of stainless steel. The detachable magazine can also be loaded through the ejection port. The Total Control Latch prevents accidental magazine release.
The special two-way 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 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 2kg. An optional single-set trigger is available for most Sako 85 models. Most Sako 85 rifles have an extremely durable, all-steel trigger guard that protects the trigger.
