The Sako M95, standard rifle of the Finnish armed forces, might just be the best assault rifle in the world(besides the Russian AN-94, AK-107, and AK-108, which are all not yet really in production). Available in both 7.62x39mm and 5.56x45mm, the M95 is basically an updated Kalashnikov, or rather, a Kalashnikov taken to its ultimate conclusion. Preceded by the M90 and M92, the M95 is the latest incarnation of the "90 Series" Valmet rifles, and, unfortunately, just may be the last. It appears Sako has stopped producing assault rifles, due to financial problems within the Finnish economy and defense industry.
Another unfortunate aspect of the M95 is that there is hardly any information on the web, or anywhere else for that matter, about it. Click on this link to go to a page about the 90 Series Valmets, and see a few pictures. It’s worth taking a look. Click here to visit Sako Ltd.’s site.
