Help please, !!! Hi, if anyone have a sako 85 varmint stainless with a 20" barrel could you please measure the barrel for me "from the front of the action to end of barrel. please"as I'm in the process of buying one and to my shock the barrel is 19" from the front of the action to muzzle end of barrel, but is the sako 20" measured to the bolt face or has this rifle been chopped and re crowned, ??????

Many thanks for any help Paul

I have looked and unless I'm mistaken a 20" barrel is measured from the end of the action to the end of the barrel, not 19" so am I wrong. The sako 85 link shows barrel length at 510mm -20" but from where.

Convention is from the bolt face. Close the bolt, stick a cleaning rod down it from the muzzle and take that measurement.

Thank's going back, if you're sako is 19" then I've learned something here, I thought this barrel had been chopped & re crowned,

thanks for all replies, Paul
