RIFLE 6.5X47 LAPUA BLASER ATTACHE MATCH 23.7 in (601 MM) NO SIGHTS
Just as diverse as hunting, so are the demands hunters place on their rifles. To say the R8 is just a bolt action rifle is the understatement of the century. More than just a rifle it is a platform that allows you the flexibility to interchange calibers while providing ergonomic perfection in stock design and unequaled trigger performance.
The desmodromic trigger mechanism guarantees your trigger will function even when iced or heavily soiled. The mechanical advantage of a simple lever will ensure success even in the harshest conditions. When things are going your way a 900g trigger, without creep, will turn that thought impulse into action.
For decades, Blaser’s manual cocking system has set the benchmark. It is acknowledged as one of the safest in the world. There is no mechanical safety system that guarantees the safety of an uncocked firing spring. The R8 is cocked the very moment before shooting. Should the shot not be taken, by simply pressing down on the cocking lever, it will slide back smoothly, decocking the rifle.
Even when in the bush, the R8 can be taken down and reassembled within a few seconds. Snow, dirt, leaves or needles are easily removed.
Fast as lightning with a relaxed posture: The bolt handle is located in an ergonomically perfect position, just above the trigger guard. Rifle and eye remain focused on the target giving more time to aim exactly and ensure a perfect shot.
The unique design of the R8 magazine above the trigger allows the overall length of the R8 to be significantly shorter than any conventional bolt action rifle.
Trigger, stock length, handling – everything remains just the way you are used to. Thanks to interchangeable barrels, the R8 is the ideal companion on all continents no matter what kind game your are hunting.
The R8 Attaché has an elegant design, a unique symbiosis of cutting-edge technology, classic elegance and excellent huntability. The natural beauty of selected wood gives this rifle its distinctive appearance.
The Match barrel is designed for sport shooting and hunting with long distances. Depending on caliber and contour, it weighs approx. 200-300g (.50.lbs) more than a standard barrel. A fluted barrel is standard. This decreases cooldown time when shooting over longer periods of time due to an increased surface area, also the weight is reduced.
