Finland-based gun maker Sako—which is distributed by Beretta here in the U.S.—rolled out three new rifles for hunters and shooters at SHOT Show this year: the Sako 85 Finlight II, Sako 85 Carbon Wolf and TRG 22/42 A1.
The Sako 85 Finlight II features a lightweight fiberglass and carbon fiber stock manufactured from aerospace grade RTM technology. It also sports a barrel treated with a weather resistant Cerakote coating, along with a fully adjustable cheek piece. The cheek piece and grip surfaces are made from elastomer. It’s available in 14 calibers, including .22-250 Rem, .243 Win, .308 Win, .25-06 Rem, .270 Win, .30-06 SPRG, .260 Rem, .300 Win Mag, .270 WSM, .300 WSM, 6.5×55 Swede, 7mm-08 Rem, 7mm Rem Mag and 6.5 Creedmoor. Barrel lengths range from 20 1/4″ to 24 2/5″. MSRP: $2,475.
Next, the Sako 85 Carbon Wolf features a lightweight synthetic, RTM carbon fiber stock; adjustable cheek piece which can be adjusted by pushing the buttons on the rear stock; and adjustable length of pull for better control and accuracy. Chambered in .308 Win, .30-06 SPRG, .300 Win Mag, 7mm Rem Mag and 6.5 Creedmoor with a 24-inch barrel, this model is priced at $3,600.
Last up is the TRG 22/42 A1. A close relative of Sako’s TRG M10, this rifle features a full-length M-LOK forend; 30 MOA canted picatinny rail; full aluminum chassis; and a folding stock with a sturdy two-point attachment. It’s offered in .308 Win, .260 Rem, 6.5 Creedmoor, .300 Win Mag and .338 LM. The barrel length is 26 inches for the first three calibers, and 27 inches for the last two. MSRP is $6,400 for this rifle in .308 Win, .260 Rem and .300 Win Mag. In .300 Win Mag and .338 LM, the price jumps up to $7,400.
“We demand perfection, so naturally there has been no room for compromise during the development and production of these new cutting-edge firearms,” Raimo Karjalainen, the General Manager at Sako Ltd., said in a press release.
