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.
