Scope Mounting on the Sako Tapered Dovetail

The Sako Tapered Dovetail

Found on a wide range of the modern rifles such as the Sako 75, Sako 85, Sako Vixen, Sako MA05, Sako Model I, Sako Model II, Sako Model III, Sako Model IV, Sako Model V, Sako L461, Sako L579, Sako S491, Sako M591, Sako L61R, Sako L691 and Sako M995, plus any others we've missed.

There are few mounts out there which are both high quality and accurate. This is mainly due to the tapered dovetail mounting system. We have however found a range of high quality picatinny rails and mounts which fit the bill.

Contessa Picatinny Rails

Picatinny Rails from Contessa, an Italian Scope Mount manufacturer. They produce a full range of picatinny rails for every size to fit the Sako Dovetail system. These rails are made from steel and are based around two dovetail clamping blocks, which are placed either side of the ejection port, bridged by a full length of picatinny rail. The dovetail blocks fit perfectly to the tapers on the Sako and when tightened up from the side using screws on the dovetail clamps, they then clamp up tight to the Sako and align to perfect center.
