Sako 85 Carbonlight hunting rifle

The Sako 85 carbonlight bolt action hunting rifle, Sako's lightest rifle

03/28/2015 - IWA 2015 / Sako: 85 Carbonlight bolt action hunting rifle, the finnish manufacturer's lightest ever rifle, built using CFRP aerospace technology for the stock and a Stainless Steel action and barrel

At this edition of the IWA Outdoor Classics trade show, Sako showcased the new 85 Carbonlight bolt action hunting rifle that was introduced earlier this year at the Shot Show. Extremely light, thanks to the monolithic carbon fiber stock, built using the same high end CFRP technology that is used in both car and aerospace industries, finished with a soft-touch surface, and a carefully engineered stainless steel 85 series-based short action and barrel, which is fluted to enhance heat dispersion and limit weight. 

The Sako 85 Carbonlight is considered to be the lightest Sako rifle ever made, weighing only 2,3 kilograms, and is aimed to appeal experienced hunters that need the best and lightest equipment commercially available. The bedded stock features a right-hand palm swell and a cheek piece, and a recoil - absorbing rubber buttstock.

A perfect rifle for mountain hunting of medium-sized game, where lonk trecks on difficult and uneven terrain is unavoidable (and also part of the appeal of these hunts!), the Sako 85 Carbonlight is exceptionally comfortable to carry. 

The total length of the Sako 85 Carbonlight is 1030 mm; the barrel is 515mm long, and depending on the caliber, can have 4 or 6 grooves and a rifling that goes from 1:8" to 1:14". The detachable magazine holds five rounds, and the trigger is available either as a single stage or a single set trigger. 

No iron sight are fitted, as the rifle is meant to be used with a riflescope.

The  Sako 85 Carbonlight is available in the following calibers: .22-250 Rem, .243 Win, .260 Rem, 7mm-08 Rem and the classic .308 Win. Sako did not comment on whether other CSA sized action versions of the Sako 85 Carbonlight may be available in the near future.
