Mr. Raimo Karjalainen, General Manager of Sako Ltd., describes the moment: “The historic 100th anniversary comes to an end at the end of March, when it is time to move on to a new 100-year period and what’s more wonderful than releasing a new hunting rifle family, SAKO 100, to promote the transition to the next 100-year term. The new Sako 100 rifle family contains new and unprecedented features that Sako firearms have not previously had. I would like to wish all our customers great experiences with the new rifle family in their hunting hobby”.

The key feature of multipurpose design of the Sako 100 is the option to switch between the calibers, making the rifle a versatile tool for different game and conditions. 

The design of Sako 100 pays homage to the traditional characteristics of the classic Sako hunting rifles, but also gives hints of what’s to come in the future.
