I may be the last camper to know this, and I may be shooting myself in the foot, but I am going to pass this on. In response to my e-mail concerning a Sako 85 Edge Tech stock, I received the following;

"Before we actually had to make a stock to fit the Sako 85 series, we had to have customers send us their rifles for fitting. Now we have a Sako Classic and Sako Hunter specifically made to fit all 85's. We will not need your rifle here now."

I ordered a Classic stock for my Sako 85 through our Gear Store.

Have a good evening,

Gramps, that is interesting news, thanks for posting.

I'll probably continue to slum the factory version but ordering would certainly be much easier now.

I am having a Sako 85 Classic stock on order on McMillan right now, for my Sako 85 Classic in 30-06 caliber.

But they asked me if I know what recoil lug size do I have in my Sako 85.
The problem is that I do not have my Sako 85 with me as it is on transit to the gunsmith.

Does anyone knows which recoil lug the Sako 85 Classic in 30-06 has? They seems to be two types...

Thanks

LRCampos.

There are at least 3 different lugs that I have seen. Unless they have changed the wood stocked ones, they are actually held onto the stock with 2 wood screws as well as the L shape. The factory synthetic just has a lug in an L shape that recesses into the stock.

wood stocked lug...



synthetic stocked lug...



When I got my EDGE, it was inletted for the wood stock lug, so I filled in the recess and milled out a new slot.

how does the edge stock measure up with an 85 in 338 federal? balanced? unbalanced? a little lively to shoot? lemme know if anyone has any info, I have an 85 with the laminate stock that shoots good, could be a goto rifle for everything if I could lighten it up a little.........

I put one on a Sako 75 SS in .308 Win. It did bring the weight down considerably. I currently have another order through our Gear Store for a Sako 85 Classic style stock for my 85 Finnlight .270 Win.

If you put a McMillan Edge Tech on your 85 Laminate, you will not believe the difference. I really don't consider the .338 Fed a heavy kicker, but if you are concerned about recoil have a one inch Pachmayr Decelerator installed by McMillan when you place your order. If most of your shots are no more than a couple hundred yards, I would think the 338 Fed would be fine with a McMillan Edge Tech stock. You will never want to put the laminate stock back on.

Good Evening,

Does McMillan embed the lugs into the stock during the build process?

I am very interested in getting a Sako Hunter for a Sako 85 Finnlite & was wondering about the recoil lug set-up in a McMillan.
