The Sako 85 Kodiak was designed with the true hunter in mind. The straight, weatherproof stock is made of grey laminated hardwood and reinforced with two cross-bolts. The short, free-floating medium contour barrel features adjustable open sights and a band-type front swivel. The barrel is cold hammer- forged using high-grade alloy stainless steel. The bolt, receiver and detachable magazine are also made of stainless steel, and provide reliable functioning under severe weather conditions.
The Grizzly, Black Bear, Brown Bear and Kodiak are purpose-oriented weapons for bear hunters. All four Bear models feature adjustable fast target acquisition iron sights and a detachable staggered two-row steel magazine with TLC, preventing unintentional magazine release. All can be top-loaded and have controlled cartridge feed, an adjustable single stage trigger and a barrel band for front swivel – plus mechanical case ejection. They are also equipped with integral dovetail rails for secure scope mounting.
