    I don’t think the Mag well design would allow it.. but I shot PRS with my Sako 85 and did pretty good even though it is a field rifle... Could have done better with a 10 shot magazine so - anyone ever heard of one even it if needs new bottom metal ?

    Have never seen a 10 round 85 magazine. Don’t believe anyone produces a magazine which utilizes factory bottom metal. CDi Precision Gun Works shows a Sako 85 LA Bottom metal kit and a 10 round magazine. Don’t know much more. Was in the R&D stage at one point. Don’t know if it’s actually being produced. Most likely not a drop in kit. Good luck

    I found this company a while back. Noticed the photo of an 85 with the bottom metal kit and magazine. I called to inquire about a magazine and bottom metal kit for an A7 - which I was in the process of reworking into a long range hunting rifle. He said he was doing R&D for the A7 rifle.

    He stated once complete, he’d need to have my rifle for fitting. That won’t happen, as I don’t want my rifle to be in someone’s black hole for months. He’ll just need to send the kit - we’ll fit it ourselves. That’s if its ever available. This rife is in a McMillan Game Scout stock.

    Haven’t seen the A7 product on his website as of yet.

    If you're talking about CDI Precision then the owner of the business passed away so no more DBM's for Sako.
