BARREL BLASER 308 WIN SEMI WEIGHT 23 in (584 MM) 0.75 in (19 MM) FLUTED

Like the Blaser R93, the Blaser R8 is a modular system capable of switching barrels. When changing from one caliber to another within the same caliber family, no bolt head change is necessary. If going outside of the caliber group during a barrel exchange, the bolt head has to be changed as well. However, the bolt head can be exchanged quickly and easily. R8 barrels does not come with the suitable magazine insert.

The Semi Weight barrel weighs, depending on caliber and contour, approx. 300g (0.66lb.) more than a standard barrel. This provides stability when the rifle is mounted and increases the certainty of a successful shot. Extensive test shooting shows that Semi Weight barrels con­sis­tently improve shooting per­for­mance.

Fluted barrels decrease cooling down time and are an eye-catcher. The fluting is specially grinded into the barrel and increases the surface area of the barrel for better cooling.

Every Blaser R8 receiver will accommodate all barrel contours. However, for an appropriate fit, the proper forearm is also required. Using a forearm for a larger contour is not a problem if the user does not mind the extra gap between the barrel and forearm. An larger barrel contour will not fit in a standard professional stock or wooden forearm though. Extra forearms are available for wooden guns but not the professional since it is a one piece composite stock.
