    Yes mine was factory threaded with rail you can get a new tikka for 695, the tikka can't be beaten for the price IMO you have to ask yourself is the sako worth nearly double the price of the tikka I didn't think so and put the rest of the money on good glass and glad I did my mate has two sako 85's and it isn't any more accurate than my tikka I love it I've also got a howa 1500 which is another cracking gun for the money also.....

    The Sako comes threaded - or mine did from the Sportsman - very accurate and well put together

    Sako bases and rings will cost u another 180 (optilocks) so maybe get the tikka if budget is tight - still a superb rifle!
