A common issue with the Sako rifles is that the taper on the rifle is not the same as the taper on the picatinny rail. Contessa have designed their rail to fit as accurately as possible, tested on a wide number of Sako 85 actions. We have discovered there are slight variations in the Sako rifle dovetails due to factory tolerances, so even just a 1/100 of a mm can mean a poor fit. A method we use to overcome this poor fit is to remove the recoil stud from the rail (This is usually glued in with thread locker by Contessa, you may need to heat the screw to release the bond). This should allow the rail to slide on further and tighter. If this doesn't overcome the problem, we do suggest to use Locktite where the rail dovetail surface contacts the rifle dovetail. This will ensure a solid hold. Bear in mind, any recoil actually pushes the rail forwards into the dovetail and recoil will not alone cause the rail to loosen.

This Steel Picatinny Rail is precision made by Contessa Alessandro & C. s.n.c. The part is precision made to fit the rifle with exact dovetail spacing to fit to the rifle with the supplied wrench. This full length rail has two dovetail clamping blocks which attach to the tapered dovetails either side of the ejection port on your Sako rifle.
