Sako 100 Design

Sako Design Legacy

Designed and crafted to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Sako, the Sako 100 is the culmination of a century of rifle design and development: it's a product of our rich heritage build on manufacturing premium firearms for hunters and outdoorsmen. A combination of cutting edge technology and timeless craft, Sako 100 is not just a functional item, it is also a beautiful, crown jewel-like piece of Sako design legacy.

The Nordic Heritage

Simple and elegant, the Sako 100 design hinges on a Nordic mentality that finds beauty in simplicity – every detail has a purpose. It's an ideology that we've spent decades perfecting, and that we continue to refine with accuracy and care. The design of Sako 100 pays homage to the traditional characteristics of the classic Sako hunting rifles, but also gives hints of what’s to come in the future.

Classic design with a modern twist

The design language of Sako 100 is based on and draws inspiration from the European rifle smith tradition with a modern twist. The Sako 100 Explorer Wood pays subtle homage to classic European stocks with schnabel-like fore-end and Monte Carlo comb of the rear stock. The walnut stocks are finished by hand. The Sako 100 Explorer Carbon in turn emphasises modern aesthetics and design combined with functionality. The atypical switch caliber structure offers a contemporary take on on rifle action, utilizing new solution and design. The finalised product is a dynamic combination of the tradition and the new, seguing neatly into Sako's next century as a leading provider of premium rifles.


Sako 100 is more than a sum of its parts, making the premium rifle a versatile tool for different game and conditions: explore the key features of Sako 100.
