Thread: do tikka t3 optilocks fit sako 75

    do tikka t3 optilocks fit sako 75

    as per title..are they a perfect fit, or are the sako 75 bases and rings different?

    I've got a set of optilocks from a t3 I want to use on a sako 75 action...but don't want to take the current mounts and scope off before I know they fit..or not fit!

    thanks gents

    no mate the bases are diffrent, i baught the wrong ones a few weeks back for my 204 and had to change them. one of the rails is about 4mm smaller. hth

    I think you will find that the Tikka rail is parallel whilst the Sako 75 rail is tapered. The bases are definitely not interchangeable. The rings are the same.

    Yep, what he said - also, the sako bases are action specific! you will need to check whether you need a M3 short action or a Mk4 long action. Rings are interchangable between sako and tikka.

    I have a set of short action stainless bases for sale, PM if they are of any use.
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position
