You are correct! Beretta owns Sako as well as multiple other Brands & is a multi-national company. FN Herstal owns many Brands as well & markets on a world wide basis. Both companies sell pistols, rifles, & shotguns & their production & sales dwarf Sako's limited production. Beretta is the oldest & largest small arms company in the world by leaps & bounds. Sako may have the largest individual production plant, but I have no way of confirming that.
