Does the Sako A7 have a dovetail rail?

Interestingly, the A7 does not boast the tapered dovetail rail that is iconic of all Sako’s other rifles. This is a significant departure from tradition. Instead Sako has opted for Weaver-style bases on the rifle. Mounting a scope only requires the shooter to source Weaver-compatible rings.
