    Hay all got a SAKO rifle here its my first time using this action. It has a strange mounting system for scope rings.

    I need options for rings? I dont even know where to start? Is someone out there making a base that bolts to the oplock system?

    Thanks

    I may offer the experience with a Sako M995.....

    Near Mfg base and Seekins rings were the solution I used for that application.

    I'm not sure which Sako you have but I'm leaning towards Talley base & rings for my stainless Sako 75 .375 H&H. Conetrol apparently also makes a good set for Sako rifles. Sako makes a 1-piece ring (with no base) for the Sako 75 & 85 but Midwest Gun Works is the only place I've found them & they don't offer a stainless version.

    Leupold makes rings to fit these rifles but I haven't heard anything good about them.

    Hope this helps!

    its the 85 target model in 308 win. I contacted NEAR and then called Kevin Cram we have it all worked out. The leupold is not any better than the sako
