Priced between the Tikka T3 and the Sako 85, the Sako A7 rifle bridges the gap between the two ranges.
The A7 is only available with a special co-polymer (synthetic) stock with soft touch grips, where the hands come in contact with the rifle.
There is a choice of either traditional blued or stainless barrels, which are threaded for moderators as standard.
The A7 has features in common with both the T3 and 85, for example it has a two-piece bolt like the T3, but 3 locking lugs like the Sako 85.
The magazine is steel reinforced copolymer, top loadable and has a 3-round capacity, single stacked.
Fitted with Weaver bases as standard in .22-250, .243, .308 and .270.
RRP will be around £1,370 for the stainless model and £1,225 for the blued version.
