Sako 90th Anniversary Model

The Finnish rifle manufacturer Sako (now owned by Beretta) was started in 1921 and turns 90 years old this year. The 90th anniversary gun is a beautiful Sako Model 85 chambered in .450 Rigby.

The only ice sculpture I saw at SHOT.

    If Sako/Beretta sees this, I want a M95/M92S carbine in the US plz.

    Very beautiful rifle; wish I could afford it. Maybe they could eventually make one in 416 Rigby caliber also.

    It is nice to see a large african caliber in other than a Mauser type action although I certainly ungerstand the popularity of the claw type extractor on the Mauser Action among African Professional Hunters.

    I hope the Sako 85 Large action starts a trend among action makers
