    Sako was born in 1921. Original Finnish name or the company was Suojeluskuntain Ase-ja Konepaja

    Osakeyhti.(Firearms and Mashine workshop o the Civil Guard) The company was established to make

    and maintain the frearms that were used by the men in Finlands newborn Civil Guard.Finland had

    achieved independence in 1917,and voluntary Civil Guard had an important role in maintaining de-

    ence readiness or the young Nation.The frearms were mostly old military ries, needing repair,re-

    barreling and service. Soon acilities in Finlands capital Helsinki showed to be too small,and Sako was

    relocated to a small town Riihimki,about 75 km (46 miles) North o Helsinki,in 1927.

    Besides military ries,also ries or competition and hunting were designed. Prototypes o sporting

    ries were designed and made already in 1930, but actual small caliber hunting ries designed and

    made in Riihimki emerged during the 2.World War.L-42 was born, and urther developed to L46 ater the war.This small game centerfre rie became

    a world success.Sako was tested in several magazines and ound the best production rie right out o the box.Soon Sako developed larger bolt actionsporters,L579 Forrester,L61R FinnbearandVL 63 Lever action Finnwolwere added to the Flocko fne Sako hunting ries.

    In 1993 proessional rie designers decided to develop a dream rie or devoted riemen.Four years designers,metallurgist,product engineers and

    marketing department worked to develop and test and shoot the new rie that evolved into the Sako 75.The year o introduction marked Sakos 75th

    anniversary.Full line o 5 dierent action sizes, detachable magazines,ergonomical stock,and various models emerged.Calibers ranged rom 222 Rem

    all the way up to 416 Rem.Mag.On top o the 75 models was 80th Anniversary Saari rie ,made in 375Holland &Holland caliber.

    90 Years o Accuracy

    Sako TodaySako has come a long way since the humble beginning.Today our design department is ully

    computerized,all steel parts are made by the latest state o the art CNC machining.Some things

    have not changed: we inspect barrels by human eye, and we shoot every rie manually with proo

    rounds and or accuracy.All o our ries comply with C.I.P & SAAMI requirements.

    In the turn o the Millenium,Sako became an honored member o the Beretta Group.

    This gave Sako resources or even better product development and market response.

    Model Sako 85 was developed , based on the vast experience o modernizing the bolt action rie.

    Further,model A7 was developed to give hunters to purchase an entry lever frst class Sako rie.

    barrels in 4 dierent rimfre calibers,or small game hunters and varminters.Sako Ltd.has become
