The rifle is intended to be for the most hardcore outdoorsmen and hunters who want or need a quick caliber change system for various environments and hunts. The quick-change system will be made from a robust all-metal construction, and a user-adjustable trigger pull weight that ranges from 3.86 pounds all the way down to a scant 1.7 pounds. The two configurations that the Sako 100 will come in include a more traditional wood stock which still features an integrated recoil pad as well as a comb height adjustment piece, and the Sako 100 Explorer Carbon which of course is made from lightweight carbon fiber.

The switch-caliber structure of Sako 100 makes it possible to use multiple calibers in a single rifle. Wherever your adventures take you, you’re working with pin-point accuracy adjusted for your needs.

243 Win, 308 Win, 6.5 CM, 6,5×55 SE, 270 Win, 30-06 Sprg, 8x57IS, 9.3×62, 300 Win Mag, 7 mm Rem Mag and 375 H&H

It is unknown at the time of writing exactly when the Sako 100 will be available or how much it will cost but according to the product webpage, the new rifle should be available sometime starting in Quarter 4 of 2022 worldwide. What are your thoughts on this new rifle from Sako and what do you think you guys can expect in terms of pricing for this premium hunting rifle that features a quick-change barrel system? Let us know down in the comments! I would be extremely interested to see if the barrel system will allow for an acceptable return to zero in between barrel changes.

    Anything about the action? I mean, normally there are long and short action rifles for the calibers mentioned, right? And here only one? Sounds interesting! Or am I getting this totally wrong?

      @Jaehaerys Targaryen they may do something similar to Tikka now with the S20. However, typically they've offered 6 different action sizes.

    A very elegant design and since it is a Sako, it will be beautifully engineered and accurate. That said, it is almost certainly not for the US where we do not have restrictions on the number of guns that we can own, as several people have said. Perhaps, features from the stock will filter over to the Model 85, which is a fantastic rifle too. I like the Euro design myself, and I suspect other shoppers for premium hunting rifles will like it too. Hopefully, there will be a demo piece at either of the Beretta galleries.
