Looking for ring suggestions for a SAKO 85.

Are the rings for the 75 and 85 the same?

Does Talley make 30MM rings that will fit, if not can you reccomend a high quality replacement?

Thanks,

John

I had good luck with these. I agree Talley's are good also.

AftonJohnny,

Be sure and post some pics of your Sako 85 when you get your scope mounted.  I really like the stock design changes Sako made to the 85.  Classy looking rifle!  I have 2 75's and 2 A-series Sakos, so I'm a huge fan of Sako in general!

AftonJohnny,

If you have a long action 85 (.30-06 length), the Talley p/n for 2 piece Sako bases is # 252728.  Then you just use whichever of their 30mm rings you wish, depending on height requirement based on your scope's objective diameter.

Thanks for all of your help and advice.

I decided to go with the Talley's to hold a Kahles Helia 2.2-9X42 scope.

The rifle ships on 5/23 and I'll post pictures as soon as it's assembled.
