    I would really like to get a new Swarovski scope with the SR rail, but I cannot find any information on how to mount it to my Sako 85 Finnlight. It seems that Blaser rifles are very accommodating for railed scopes, but I can't find much else. Does anyone have any experience with this?

    Yes, I have seen that. It is very general. I am hoping someone has actually mounted a Swaro with SR rail to their Sako 85. I want to hear some personal experiences with mounting and real world use. Hopefully someone has done it! Thanks for your reply!

    If it's M or L size action I would expect ejection issues with that system. On S or XS it might work without ejected cases hitting it.

    Here is how I mounted the Swarovski rail scope on my L57. As long as the tapered dovetail is still on the 85, you can get Weaver bases and attach the Swarovski rail on them...
