    Sako Mags 85 vs 75

    Hey gang,

    Noticed that mags for a Sako 85 are pretty rare to come by from retailers in NZ.
    So was just wondering if they are the same as the mags for the 75 or not?
    Considering getting another mag and as I'm over in the states soon and noticed that they sell them for the 85 and not the 75...
    So what's the difference?

    Cheers

    75(III) bottom metal with 85(S) Magazine - It just don't fit! The 75 Mag will be too wide for the 85 bottom metal.

    6" vice will fix that.
    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    That is too precise, A FBH will do - Sounds like a job for a boilermaker? @veitnamcam
