Greetings! I'm a new forum member with a new Sako 85 Bavarian Carbine in .308 Winchester. This is the first Sako rifle I've owned since I bought an L461 Vixen in .222 Remington almost fifty years ago. My new Sako is a Bavarian Carbine in .308 Winchester. As soon as it arrives, I'll be mounting a Steiner GS3 2-10x42 scope on it. This model GS3 is 13.5" long and weighs 18 oz so it should be a good fit for the light, compact carbine while still having decent capabilities.
