SAKO HISTORY.

Our history began when the company was founded in the early 1920s. Sako has come a long way from its early hand manufacture to today’s computer aided R&D and CNC manufacturing. Nevertheless, we have not forgotten the value of traditional gunsmith craftsmanship, which is why we still carry out certain critical steps ourselves. This is exemplified by our visual inspection of each individual barrel, after which we manually test them for accuracy during a test shoot. All of our rifles comply with CIP and SAAMI requirements.

BERETTA HOLDING GROUP.

At the turn of the millennium, Sako was honored to become a member of the Beretta Group, which gave access to new and advanced production methods enabling us to continuously refine our product development. In addition to rifles, Sako produces centerfire cartridges. We make more than 100 different loads in 35 popular calibers for different targets and hunting purposes. Making both rifles and cartridges is a matter of pride for Sako. Our mission remains to offer our customers the very best in accuracy and performance.

The Sako Moose “Hiiden Hirvi” is a bronze sculpture located at Sako Ltd’s headquarters courtyard in Riihimäki, Finland. Sketched by the landscape designer Pirita Meskanen and finalized by the art caster Jorma Kärkkäinen, the Sako Moose is a culmination of a 5-year design process. The sculpture was revealed in June 2020.
