The Sako TRG is one of the most popular sniper rifles among special forces operatives. It is an accuracy concept designed to accomplish a single-minded mission: to hit the target – whatever it takes.
Sako TRG is a series of sniper rifles developed by the Finnish firearm manufacturer SAKO of Riihimäki (Finland). First rifles were designed in 1989 (TRG-21/41 while the TRG-22/42 was designed in 1999. One of the best bolt action rifles you’ll ever use.
The Sako rifles are available with olive drab green, desert tan/coyote brown, dark earth or black stocks, and are also available with a folding stock.
The Sako gives you performance that surpasses the highest demands for accuracy, reliability, and versatility. It is one of the most accurate rifles out of the box. Today, SAKO TRG rifles are part of armories around the world, military or law enforcement.
Any bolt-action centerfire rifle – which is what Sako makes – will put a full magazine into a circle the size of a quarter at 250 yards if you’re willing to spend time tuning it. Sako rifles are pre-tuned at the factory by experts; they come out of the box shooting well. Plus they are beautiful to look at and hold. They used to be priced much higher than other guns but no longer – Sako didn’t get cheaper, everyone else got more expensive.
SAKO TRG 21/22 and SAKO TRG 41/42
The SAKO TRG-21 and TRG-22 are designed to fire standard .308 Winchester ammunition, while the SAKO TRG-41 and TRG-42 versions are designed to fire more powerful .300 Winchester Magnum and .338 Lapua Magnum ammunition and therefore have a larger action and barrel as standard. Both of those calibers are at the very top of the list for rifle calibers. They pack a lot of velocity and energy.
SAKO M10 Sniper Weapon System
The company also offers the Sako M10 Sniper Weapon System. The Sako TRG M10 was designed as a user-configurable multi-caliber modular system and does not share its receiver and other technical features with the rest of the TRG line.
The M10 is a purpose-built precision rifle. The Finns valued the importance of machining precision early in WWII. The Finnish copy of the Mosin Nagant was one of the most accurate weapons of all time.
