USED Picatinny Rail - This is an older style picatinny rail with two screws per base. The design of the rail has been updated with an adjustable front base, so this version is no longer supplied. There is some very slight signs of wear on the inner dovetails. But nothing noticeable when the rail is on the rifle.

This Steel Picatinny Rail is precision made by Contessa Alessandro & C. s.n.c. The part is precision made to fit the rifle with exact dovetail spacing to fit to the rifle with the supplied wrench. This full length rail has two dovetail clamping blocks which attach to the tapered dovetails either side of the ejection port on your Sako rifle.

You can't always tell which size Sako action you have from the calibre, so to check which rail fits your rifle all you need to do is measure the length between your two bases, i.e. measure the length of your ejection port.
If it's approx. 74mm you need the Sako Short Rail.
If it's approx. 84mm you need the Sako Medium Rail.
If it's approx. 94mm you need the Sako Long Rail.


Distance Spacing: (distances between bases)
30mm (Dovetail Base) / 84mm / 30mm (Dovetail Base)


Fitting:
A common issue with the Sako rifles is that the taper on the rifle is not the same as the taper on the picatinny rail. Contessa have designed their rail to fit as accurately as possible, tested on a wide number of Sako 85 actions. We have discovered there are slight variations in the Sako rifle dovetails due to factory tolerances, so even just a 1/100 of a mm can mean a poor fit. A method we use to overcome this poor fit is to remove the recoil stud from the rail (This is usually glued in with thread locker by Contessa, you may need to heat the screw to release the bond). This should allow the rail to slide on further and tighter. If this doesn't overcome the problem, we do suggest to use Locktite where the rail dovetail surface contacts the rifle dovetail. This will ensure a solid hold. Bear in mind, any recoil actually pushes the rail forwards into the dovetail and recoil will not alone cause the rail to loosen.

* The older models of Sako with the tapered dovetail, even on the Sako 75, there are larger variations in the dovetail widths. So you may discover that the rail does not slide on fully flush with the back of the rifle. This again would require hand fitting to the rifle. If you need any advice on hand fitting please contact us.
