A weather-resistant rifle for tough weather conditions, the Sako A7 comes with a stainless steel barrel, action and bolt and a copolymer black stock with a Soft Touch coating.
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 in the rifle. Material is 50% nylon, 50% fiberglass, with stainless magazine spring. Inserted steel collar allows insertion of cartridges from above. Magazine is held in place by Total Control Latch, to prevent unintentional loosening.
