Sako Ballistics app


Changing a barrel takes only a few seconds and requires only a 5 mm Allen tool (supplied with the rifle).

  1. Open the bolt and check that the rifle is unloaded.
  2. Remove the magazine.
  3. Insert the tool provided into the screw under the fore-end, in front of the magazine and turn until you feel slight resistance (approx. 2-3 full turns) counterclockwise.
  4. Take a firm hold on the stock. Tilt the barrel up and simultaneously pull it out from the receiver.
  5. Insert and gently push another barrel into the receiver.
  6. Lower the barrel into the barrel groove and tighten the Allen screw. Firmly, but not too tight!
  7. Select the right magazine, load and you are ready to shoot.
