USA – -(Ammoland.com)-Sako is manufacturing a limited edition of numbered Sako TRG 22 “Finland 100” sniper rifles with white camouflage, designed in the spirit of Finnish persistence to celebrate fFnland’s 100 years of independence. This jubilee model will become a collector’s item.
SAKO, which started as a gunsmith’s shop for the White Guard's joint chiefs of staff and has evolved into a globally renowned manufacturer of rifles and ammunition, has been an important element of the history of independent Finland.
Now SAKO wants to pay homage to its traditions and above all to its 100-year old homeland by manufacturing a numbered series of 100 Sako TRG 22 “Finland 100” sniper rifles.
The TRG 22 “Finland 100” jubilee model is offered in .308 Win caliber. The white snow camouflage colouring of the stock and barrelled action of this real collector’s item reflects the severity of the Finnish winter, and, also pays homage to the heroes of the Winter War who saved Finland’s independence in demanding conditions – and relied on Sako products even then.
The Sako TRG 22 “Finland 100” sniper rifle has the text “Finland 100”, and the gun’s serial number is laser-engraved on its frame. The rifle is packaged in a carry case with a jubilee knife with the same engravings as the rifle itself. The jubilee model also comes with two magazines, bipod, muzzle brake and removable open sights.
Sako is retaining part of the series for its own use, for example to be sold in charity auctions. However, part of the series of 100 guns will also be available for sale. Those interested in the Sako TRG 22 “Finland 100” collector's item should enquire from the importers of Sako products in their respective countries.
About Sako LTD
Sako Ltd was established in 1921. From a traditional firearms repair shop in the early 1920´s the company has developed into a highly automated modern production plant without forgetting the valuable know-how and craftsmanship of the past.
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.
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.
