    Hi All - It looks like both the Sako and Tikka websites are counting down to some sort of product release slated for the third week of January. Any educated guesses as to what it will be? Thanks!

    Hoping for rimfire Tikka but no educated guesses here!
    The last Tikka "game changer" was the tactical rifle which left a lot of people underwhelmed.

    I'd like to see a mannlicher stocked T3x! Or, just bring back the L579 mannlicher, haha.

    I understand they have retooled and are producing the early Riihimaki style bolt and chambering 218 Bee and 22 Hornet for the hungry masses...

    The Sako countdown doesn't seem to be signaling major change, just saying" new year new models". I reckon it is not going to be the new Sako 95 because they aren't hyping it up enough.
    The Tikka one shows a forest scene and a fifty metre range which makes me think rimfire - something for hunting and something for short range target shooting at 50.

    Looks like the Tikka is a rimfire! The T1X in 22lr and 17hmr.

    Hi All - I just took a quick look at Sako's website and it appears that they've removed over 50% of the Model 85 variants that have typically been offered. I no longer see the half-stock Bavarian, Brown Bear, Black Bear, Grizzly, Deluxe, Classic Deluxe, Safari, so on and so forth. Not sure if this means anything at all but, perhaps it's a hint of a re-engineered Model 85 or a brand new 95? (fingers crossed!) Thanks!
