    No more stainless optilocks

    I just read on a Sako forum I am a member of that Sako has announced they will no longer be manufacturing optilocks and optilock accessories in stainless. Get out there and buy them all up now if you want new ones!

    Beretta NZ is having a special run of stainless optilocks made for NZ, annually. So in general yes they were discontinued by Sako - but they will still be available to the NZ market.

    Should be available in Sept. Will be available from anywhere you would normally obtain optilocks in NZ - and if they are not in stock on the shelf, then the store can order them in for you from Beretta.

    What the hell kind of decision is this

    Unless they’re replacing them with titanium optilocks to go with your Carbonlite

    ^Indeed, It is a very strange decision. Luckily we in NZ did not agree with it and pushed to have them made specially for the NZ market.

    What sizes have Berretta ordered them in ? And what price can we expect?

    Very odd move....it is not like the market is flooded with aftermarket options for Sako rings either.
    Would certainly put me off buying say a new carbon light if the salesman could only offer rusty blued rings to mount a scope on it.

    1" Extra Low, 1" Low, 1" Medium, 30mm Extra Low, 30mm Low, 30mm Medium. All the usual options will be available (in NZ). Price should be the same or close to the current price.

    Would hate to guess the price if special order.

    Now there's a suggestion with merit! I'd buy a set of those.

    Yes, it's about time Sako produced a lighter version of the Optilocks.
