Sako A7 – Genuine Sako Rifle at an Attractive Price
The Sako A7 is not a new rifle, but very much work a mention during our Rifle Focus month. Both Sako and its sister company Tikka are owned by Beretta and the A7 is positioned within the market slightly above the range of Tikka models, but just below the Sako rifle range. The A7 would be classed as an entry level rifle with the combination of Tikka affordability. Everybody knows the Tikka rifles, love the Tikka rifles and it is widely accepted that they are some of the best value for money rifles on the market. Both Sako and Tikka rifles shoot very well.
The Sako A7 has unique features that are not available in any other Sako or Tikka rifles: The special steel action is made in two sizes, S and M, and to comply with available calibres, the receiver is drilled and tapped for bases, the bolt has three locking lugs in front and a 70-degree angle for fast cycling. Furthermore, it has a polymer magazine with integral steel feeding lips to allow top loading without removing the magazine.
The receiver is drilled and tapped for mounts, and weaver rails are available. If these are to be used, they have to be glued – however, they may also be replaced with suitable steel bases that are readily available on the market.
The co-polymer magazine is also loadable from the top, when inserted into the rifle. Material is 50% nylon, 50% fibreglass, with stainless magazine spring. Inserted steel collar allows insertion of cartridges from above. The magazine is held in place by the Total Control Latch to prevent unintentional loosening.
