85 Carbonlight

The Sako 85 Carbonlight is a high-end rifle designed for gear-oriented enthusiasts who are after any type of game. This ultra-light multi-purpose hunting rifle features a carbon fiber stock with a soft-touch surface, a right-hand palm swell and a cheek piece. With an approximate weight of only 2.4 kg, the Sako 85 Carbonlight with S-action or the new XS-action is exceptionally comfortable to carry, even on long treks. The 2017 models also come with a left-handed option and different action lengths, including M-action.

SPECIAL FEATURES

TECHNOLOGY

The Sako 85 Carbonlight rifle is built using the same CFRP technology that is used in both car and aerospace industries. This makes it extremely light, durable and rigid, resulting in a one-of-a-kind rifle.
