Unique in every way

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.

ACCURATE

Blaser precision trigger
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. 

Blaser Saddle Mount
Barrel and Saddle Mount form one accurate unit: Notches machined into the top of the barrel, directly above the chamber, insure while your barrel freely floats your point of impact remains constant.

Optimum barrel bedding
The large-scale bedding of the barrel exclusively in the solid receiver guarantees repeatable accuracy when exchanging the barrel. Stock deformation due to extreme weather can never affect the position of the barrel. Blaser radial locking system Stability and reliable accuracy: The extremely strong, concentric locking system locks directly in the barrel without any rotary motion. 14 locking surfaces provide 360 degree engagement.

Forged barrel and chamber
Precision and durability: The barrel and chamber are cold hammer forged at the same time for most calibers. Barrel and chamber are perfectly concentric.

SAFE

Manual cocking system
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.

Protection against misuse
If the R8 with integrated trigger guard is taken out, the cocking lever can not be set in cocked position.This is without doubt the safest protection against unauthorized use!

No unintentional bolt opening
If the R8 is decocked with a locked bolt, the bolt handle is blocked. To safely open the bolt, the cocking lever needs to be moved slightly forward (approx. 3mm/1.8"), but not cocked, while simultaneously pulling back on the bolt handle.

RELIABLE

Quick take down – easily cleaned
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.

Desmodromic trigger mechanism
Maximum reliability – even when iced or heavily soiled. The trigger system of the R8 is force-controlled. Cycling the receiver automatically resets the trigger.

Locked magazine
The R8 magazine is only released when simultaneously pressing both release buttons. Accidental drop out of the magazine by unintentionally pushing the release buttons is thus virtually impossible. In addition, both release buttons can be locked by a lever inside the magazine.

Excellently protected 
The closed construction of the R8 receiver prevents damage caused by foreign objects. When the magazine is stored outside the rifle, a protective cover keeps the dirt out. All metal parts are either made of rustproof material or protected against corrosion with a specific finish. The inside of the barrel and chamber are polished and only need conventional care.

FAST

In-line repeating
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.

„Blind” magazine exchange
Easy and fast: The magazine buttons can be operated “blindly” due to their perfect positioning above the trigger. When pushing on both buttons at the same time, the magazine releases straight into the shooter’s hand. A second, loaded magazine can be inserted extremely quickly without looking.

Double loading option
The R8 can be loaded and unloaded in two ways: with the magazine taken out or left inside the rifle. With an open bolt, cartridges can be inserted or removed from the top of the magazine very quickly and easily.

HUNTABLE

Short cut
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.

Perfect balance
The well-balanced weight distribution allows for fast handling and quick target acquisition.

Easy take-down
More comfort when stalking over long distances: The R8 ist stripped down, packed away and reassembled in a matter of seconds without the slightest change in the point of impact.

VERSATILE

Around the world with one 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.

Changing rifle scopes easily
Every barrel is prepared for the Original Blaser Saddle Mount, so each rifle scope and illuminated dot sight that is zeroed to the barrel can be interchanged.

Changing stocks
If you are expecting bad weather or rugged terrain, the precious wooden stock can be removed and replaced with the R8 Professional synthetic stocks.

For left-hand shooters
Most R8 models are available as a true left-hand version including stock, bolt assembly and ejection.

Compact solution for ladies and gents:
R8 Intuition
Features a purpose-built stock which takes into account the anatomy of women.

R8 Compact
The perfect choice whenever build and size of the hunter require a shorter stock.

R8 PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS

Sporting shooters have been using special rifle stocks for decades. They know that you shoot much more accurately with them! So why should not hunters use the best stock available, too? As hunters are not aiming at inanimate targets, but are striving to cleanly kill live game, the perfect stock is essential. Once a hunter has tried a thumbhole stock, they rarely want to use anything else. The R8 Professional Success is also available as compact Stutzen version.

PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS THUMBHOLE STOCK

  • ergonomically optimized stock
  • provides a relaxed posture of hand and arm in any shooting position
  • vexatious flinching is reduced to a minimum
