Sako (Suojeluskuntain Ase- ja Konepaja Oy) is rifle and ammunition manufacturer located in Riihimäki, Finland. It was founded in 1921, after the rifle repair workshop, opened in former Helsinki brewery, became independent of the civil guard. The workshop grew into a weapons factory, which produced hunting rifles as well as cartridges and moved its headquarters from Helsinki to Riihimäki. The first civilian rifle bearing the name Sako, was the L42, prototyped in 1942 and commercially manufactured a few years later.
After the World War II, domestic hunting culture thrived and Sako invested in development of hunting rifles. Due to this investment, domestic sales increased along with export to the USA and the rest of the world. In the 1980s, Sako merged with another firearm manufacturer, Tikkakoski and gained a valuable rifle line called Tikka. The production of military and law enforcement weapons started when Finnish defence forces ordered assault rifles and cartridges from Sako.
The company has changed multiple owners since 1921, but has ultimately been sold to Italian Beretta Holding in 2000. In 2006, Sako celebrated its 85th anniversary by launching a new hunting rifle family, Sako 85. In 2020, Sako introduced S20, the first truly hybrid rifle, designed for both; hunters and tactical shooters. Another novelty presented by Sako in 2020 was a brand new, lead-free Sako Powerhead bullet.
Sako introduced rifle Sako S20 on 20.02.2020. It is available in two main options: hunter and precision. Sako is the first to truly combine both, precision shooting and hunting into one rifle with takedown stock, which is the only thing the user has to replace to transform the rifle. The engineering of the rifle can be compared to the TRG line, but with S20 this engineering became widely accessible, as the S20 is almost half the price of the TRG rifles.
The rifle chassis is manufactured from aircraft-grade aluminium providing maximum stiffness and thus excellent sub-MOA accuracy along with keeping the low weight. The tactical precision rear stock combines great ergonomics with high adjustability, while the forend comes with M-LOK placements for attaching additional attachments. It offers a steel receiver, which has separate Picatinny rail machined directly into it.
Calibre options available for this rifle:
Since the Picatinny rail on the receiver is not connected, we would recommend ring mounts for 100% fit and a good choice would be Tier-One rings.
As for the detachable repeatable mounts, we would recommend INNOmount 30mm detachable repeatable mounts.
If you have this rifle or any other rifle at home, we would really appreciate it if you could send us some photos of the rifle receiver (mounting surface of the rifle when there are no mounts installed), because it would help us expand our rifle mounts database. If you send us a photo of rifle receiver which we don’t already have, that would be of great value to us and we will definitely reward you for your help.
