This Steel Picatinny Rail is precision made by Contessa Alessandro & C. s.n.c. The mount is precision made to fit the Sako Tapered Dovetail System. Supplied as components, the separate bases are mounted to the rifle and locked in place with vertical locking screws (we do suggest giving the bases a firm tap with a plastic hammer to make sure they're fitted on fully). This is the Extended Version designed to be used with scopes such as night vision, which need to be mounted rearwards for better eye relief.
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. 56mm you need the Sako X-Short Rail
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.

The independent front and rear bases slide onto the Sako dovetails, then are tightened to the action using locking screws from the top of the base. Once the bases are fitted, the length of picatinny fits over the top of them and is screwed on to the bases to secure them in place. We would recommend using thread locker adhesive to ensure the screws don't loosen under recoil.
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 hand fit the bases to the rifle using a file. We can instruct on a good method if this is the case - email us at email@example.com
