Sako 100 trigger mechanism

Fine-tuned trigger mechanism

True premium trigger mechanism with manual cocking or firing pin safety: The Sako 100 sports an adjustable trigger position with easy-to-use interface. The range for weight of pull allows most users to find their preference in each situation, and possible re-adjustment can be done easily without any disassembly. The Sako 100 has also advanced safety features.

Adjustable high quality trigger

Sako 100's trigger can be adjusted on a 6 step system, with weight of pull ranging from 750g to 1750g. The wide range means you can find the weight that works for you, and readjustment can be done without any disassembly.

For the most optimal trigger ergonomics the trigger can also be moved forwards and backwards with a movement range of 7mm. The factory setting is in the middle.

Manual cocking

Manual cocking or "handspannung" is the default safety option of Sako 100. It lets you keep the rifle uncocked until you're ready to shoot – the rifle is cocked only when the manual cocking button is pushed. When the rifle is cocked and ready to fire, you can safely decock the rifle and bring down the firing spring tension by applying the small release latch located on the top edge of the larger cocking button. You can open the bolt securely when the safety is on by pressing the bolt release button on the side of the bolt shroud and opening the bolt. Now you can safely remove a cartridge from the chamber. Safety will remain on until you have closed the bolt and re-cocked the rifle.


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.
