Sako’s fine hunting rifle lineup has some exciting new additions in the A7 Long Range and A7 Coyote. These rifles are built on one-piece extruded aluminum skeletons (rather than a welded skeleton) for increased strength and durability, with aluminum-bedded barreled actions for accuracy.

The chassis are then embedded into Sako’s Roughtech stock, which features a Monte Carlo design with a wide, flat-bottom “beavertail” forend that sports twin sling attachment points. The Roughtech stocks are covered with a gritty, highly textured finish that promotes a solid grip on the stock in all weather conditions.
The Sako A7 Long Range takes that essential design and mates it with a 26-inch-long, fluted barrel chambered in long-range rounds including the .300 Winchester Magnum and 7mm Remington Magnum. Designed for big-game hunting at extended ranges, these rifles are equipped with detachable magazines that are top-load capable.

The Sako Coyote builds upon the A7’s concept with a rifle purpose-built for predator and varmint hunting. Coyote barrels are 24 inches long, fluted and chambered for a range of varmint calibers. This model boasts the same Roughtech stock, magazine and other features of the A7 Long Range.
