Sako 75

     Notes: This rifle, introduced in 1997, was originally available in 5 action lengths (with varying barrel lengths depending upon the Action), but Action II (the lengths range from the short Action I to the very long Action V) was dropped in 1999, and I have no information on that action length.  However, in 2002, another action length, the Action SM was added, firing short magnum rounds exclusively.  There are a number of variants of the Sako 75 (apart from the action lengths), including the Hunter (the basic rifle), the Hunter Lefthand (available in Action IV only, but otherwise identical to the Hunter for game purposes), the Hunter Laminated Stainless (using a laminated gray wood stock and stainless steel metalwork), the Deluxe (high-grade walnut stock which is oiled, polished, and lacquered, an engraved floorplate for the magazine, but otherwise identical to the Hunter for game purposes), the Finnlight (available only in Actions III-V, but much lighter than the standard rifle), the Synthetic Stainless (with a black synthetic stock, stainless steel metalwork, and a green pistol grip wrist and fore-end using soft-touch padded material), the Varmint (Actions I and III only, but with a heavy barrel and Monte Carlo high-grade walnut stock), and the Varmint Laminated Stainless (with a laminated stock, stainless steel metalwork, and somewhat heavier than the Varmint). All of these rifles have walnut stocks (except the Synthetic Stainless), most have checkered pistol grip wrists and fore-ends, and they all have free-floating barrels.  The action lengths are not presented separately below; instead, the cartridges the variant may fire are presented together.  They are all close enough in weight that they shoot the same, and there are not different lines in the second table below (except for the Finnlight and the Varmint models).  The different models also fire different mixes of rounds, and in some cases are made of different materials, therefore they have different entries in the first table below.

     In 2005, Sako introduced the 80th Anniversary Sako 75 Safari.  Only 80 are to be built, and each comes with a letter of authenticity.  The only chambering is .375 H&H Magnum.  In addition to the standard Sako 75 action, the 80th Anniversary version has a controlled feed mechanism for extra reliability.  The magazine of this model is fixed, but there is a hinged floorplate for loading, and this floorplate has a special emblem on it denoting its special edition status.  The trigger is single-stage, but has a light pull, and is adjustable from 2-4 pounds.  The stock is of high-grade oil-finished walnut root with an ebony endcap for the fore-end and a recoil pad for the butt. The 80th Anniversary has special adjustable iron sights; in addition, there is a Weaver-style scope base above the receiver.  This special edition comes with a Swarovski PVI 1.25-4x24 scope; this scope is affixed to the Weaver rail with special quick-release locks.  The barrel is heavy and cold-forged.

     It should be noted that the following chamberings are no longer offered by Sako: .17 Remington, .22 PPC, 6mm PPC, 7x64mm Brenneke, 7mm STW, 7mm Remington UltraMag, or any of the Weatherby Magnums.  I have not been able to finds out when these rounds were dropped.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: These rifles do not exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Sako Finnfire

     Notes: This is a short-action rimfire rifle with a walnut half-stock.  The stock has a Monte Carlo comb and cheekpiece.  It is a simple and easy to care for rifle with three versions available.  The standard version is the Finnfire Hunter, with a 22-inch standard-weight cold-forged free-floating barrel, and fixed sights. The Finnfire Varmint has a heavy 23-inch barrel which is also free-floating and cold-forged and has no iron sights. The third variant is the Finnfire Range; this is basically similar to the Varmint, except that the stock is ergonomically-shaped and has an adjustable butt.  All Finnfires have an adjustable trigger and a dovetail rail above the receiver to mount a scope.

Sako L-46/461

     Notes: This weapon has been built for almost 60 years.  It is a standard-pattern sporting rifle built for a variety of cartridges and in many different variants.  The L-46 series features a detachable box magazine, a trigger group copied from the Winchester M-70, and low Monte Carlo combs.

     The first L-46 rifles had straight bolt handles, and are chambered for a variety of small-caliber cartridges. This rifle was further developed into the L-461 series.  The L-461 series begat a bewildering amount of variants, including the L-461 Vixen, which had a modified, more reliable trigger; the L-461 Model 74 Vixen, with modifications to reduce wear and over-rotation of the bolt; L-461 Model 74 Super Sporter, with rosewood stocks and skip-line checkering; and the L-461 Deluxe, with a hand-carved rosewood stock;  the L-461 Hunter LS had a laminated stock, with each rifle having a color and wood-grain pattern of its own (all identical for game purposes).

     The L-461 Varmint used a heavy barrel.  The L-461 Carbine was, of course, shorter than the standard rifle, but had a full-sized stock.  The short-lived L-461 Classic Sporter was offered in three calibers.  The L-461 Heavy Barrel was originally offered in five chamberings, but by 1996, the .22 PPC and 6mm PPC options were cut; this weapon has no iron sights.  The L-461 Hunter is identical to the standard L-461, but is also available in .17 Remington; it was originally known as the L-461 Standard.  The L-461 Lightweight is a Hunter with a light barrel and shorter stock, to save weight.  The L-461 Lightweight Deluxe is identical, except for being made of polished rosewood and stainless steel metalwork.  The L-461 PPC rifle was designed specifically to highlight the .22 PPC and 6mm PPC cartridges; they are single-shot weapons.  The L-461 Target rifle has a heavy free-floating barrel set in a competition-style stock; they use internal magazines and have optical sights.

Sako L-57/579

     Notes: This is basically an enlarged L-46/L-461 series rifle, designed for medium-caliber weapons.  The L-57 uses a fixed internal magazine, The L-57 encountered a lot of problems and did not last long before being replaced by the L-579 series.  A plethora of variants were built.  The first L-57s were designed to fire only .243 Winchester and 7.62mm NATO cartridges; the L-579 added the .244 Remington and 7.62mm Kalashnikov rounds.  The L-579 was a perfected L-57, with smoother surfaces inside and out, and a more robust bolt. 

     The L-579 Forester Carbine (also known as the BL-579) was a shortened version of the L-579, with a full-length stock.  In 1965, the .244 Remington option was replaced by the .22-250 Remington round.  The L-579 Model 72 Forester replaced the Forester Carbine in the early 1970s; they had a feature to prevent the bolt from over-rotating.  (These two are identical for game purposes.)  This version did not last long before being replaced with the L-579 Model 74 Forester; this had a longer barrel and a further refined action.  The L-579 Model 74 Super Sporter is a deluxe version of the L-579, identical to it for game purposes.  The L-579 Model 74 Varmint has a heavy barrel, but is otherwise the same as the L-579.  The L-579 Carbine is a very short version of the L-579 made only in two calibers; this weapon itself has two versions, an early version with a 19.4 barrel, and a late version with a detachable box magazine and an 18.5 barrel.  The L-579 Classic Sporter is identical to the L-579, but has a highly-polished, oiled stock and comes only in .243 Winchester.  The L-579 Super Deluxe is another high-grade version of the L-579, identical for game purposes.  The L-579 Handy (or Hunter Carbine) is a short rifle with a mere 18.5 barrel; it was normally chambered for 7mm-08 or 7.62mm NATO, but a .22-250 model was built until 1990 and a .243 Winchester chambering was available only in Handys made in 1991.  The L-579 Fiberclass has a polished fiberglass stock.  The L-579 Heavy Barrel is available in the largest number of chamberings.  The L-579 Hunter and Hunter LS are versions with a wider selection of calibers; a left-handed version was also built.  The Hunter Lightweight has a lighter barrel and stock made of lighter woods.  The L-579 Standard comes in two versions firing a different mix of calibers.  The L-579 Target has a massive half-stock, floating heavy barrel, and a detachable box magazine.
