Thread: Left hand - Sako 75 action I (222/223)

    Left hand - Sako 75 action I (222/223)

    Hi,

    More out of curiosity than anything else, but I noted that the Sako 75 short action (I) comes in left hand - has anyone actually seen or got one of these or are they just a myth?

    Kind regards

    Siggy.

    It is a myth.

    The Sako 75 only ever appeared in long action IV (.30-06 length) so your info is wrong.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    The only proper short action in left hand for 223 is the CZ 527. Indeed Edgar brothers list them

    My info may be wrong, but it came from the Sako website ;-)

    hey ho, the joys of being left handed. At least the action IV includes the 6.5x55 so at least the got my favourite

    I can't read the blurred image, but the Model 75 has been out of production for years. LH - action I aren't listed in any of the Model 75 Catalogues I've collected.

    I suspect the reason these weren't offered is because of the LH Tikka M595 Sako were also making at that time at half the price of a Sako.... same trigger, same barrel, and every bit as good.

    Hi,
    thanks for this - would I be right in assuming the M595 is a medium length action as it also covers the 243/308 calibres?
    Kind regards

    Correct. If you were after one in long action it would be an M695 you'd be after.

    I have a sako M591 in left hand ....22-250 calibre ....again older sako but well worth buying one if rebarreling. I love the action .
