    what thread size is my Sako 85?

    hey guys,

    looking for a mod for my .308 sako 85 laminate stainless varmint fluted barrel and haven't a clue about the thread size,

    anyone got any ideas?

    cheers for the help

    My .223 laminate stainless varmint has a M18x1 thread, which I think comes as standard on the factory-threaded barrels. So if yours has a factory thread, I'd imagine it was likely to be that also.

    The factory thread on the varmint is deffinately 18x1.
    The website and handbook will also confirm this.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Didn't think the FINNLIGHT came factory threaded as mine didn't?
