Accurate . . .
Precision lies in the interaction of many details. Know them all!
Blaser precision trigger
Excellent "crisp" characteristics.
Forged barrel & chamber
Optimum barrel bedding
Large-scale barrel bedding exclusively in the receiver.
Blaser saddle mount
Mount is positioned directly above the chamber. The barrel floats freely. The point of impact remains constant.
Blaser radial locking system
Extremely strong and concentric. The locking system locks directly in the barrel without rotary motion.
Perfect stock design
Relaxed positioning of the hand. Steep pistol grip with distinct palm swell and optimal cast. Straight comb.
Fast . . .
It is one thing to shoot in rapid succession.
To be successful at it takes more than skill.
Lightning-fast succession of shots. Relaxed posture.
"Blind" magazine exchange
Within a split second, the magazine buttons can be operated. By spring force, the magazine is released straight into the shooter's hand. The loaded magazine can be inserted "blindly".
Double loading option
Loading from the top of the magazine is possible.
iC - one move, two functions (optional)
Cocking the R8 automatically activates the illuminated dot (in combination with a ZEISS iC rifle scope).
SAFE . . .
Even if it never happens, you have to be prepared.
Make safety a priority. It's in your hands.
Manual cocking system
An uncocked firing pin spring is the best safety system, the rifle is only cocked the very moment before shooting. By pressing down on the cocking lever, the firing pin spring on the R8 is uncocked again.
Protection against misuse
If the magazine is taken out, the rifle cannot be cocked.
Removing the magazine unit automatically uncocks the rifle, when the receiver is closed.
No unintentional bolt opening
If the R8 is decocked with a locked bolt, the bolt handle is blocked. By slightly pushing the cocking lever forward while simultaneously pulling back on the bolt handle, the bolt opens safely; this slight movement does not cock the rifle.
Huntable . . .
Sometimes less is more.
Less rifle length gives you more freedom of movement.test
The well-balanced weight distribution allows for fast handling and quick target acquisition.
The R8 is stripped down and reassembled in a matter of seconds without the slightest change in the point of impact.
Well-protected and discreet. Passers-by will hardly notice that the compact case is in fact a rifle case.
The unique design of the magazine above the trigger allows the overall length of the R8 to be significantly shorter than any conventional bolt action rifle.
RELIABLE . . .
In rough conditions, a foreign object could cause
a rifle to malfunction. But that's no reason
for the hunt to be over.
Easy to take down and clean
The R8 is stripped down and reassembled within a few seconds. Snow, dirt, leaves or needles are easily removed.
The R8 magazine is only released when simultaneously pressing both release buttons. Unintentional drop out of the magazine is virtually impossible. In addition, both release buttons can be locked by a lever inside the magazine.
All metal parts of the R8 are either made of rustproof material or protected against corrosion with a specific finish. Barrel inside and chamber are polished and need conventional care. The closed construction of the R8 receiver prevents foreign object damage. When the magazine is stored outside the rifle, a protective cover will keep the dirt out.
Desmodromic trigger mechanism
One hundred percent reliability – even when iced or heavily soiled. The trigger system of the R8 is force-controlled. Cycling the receiver automatically resets the trigger.
VERSATILE . . .
Today you hunt in your home territory.
Tomorrow you are on another continent.
When it comes to your rifle, trust what you know.
Around the world with one rifle
Thanks to exchangeable barrels, the R8 is the ideal companion on all continents no matter what kind of game you hunt. Trusted operation, familiar balance and stock are valuable factors for hunting success.
Changing stocks when needed
The precious wooden stock can be preserved by simply replacing it with the R8 Professional synthetic stock.
Changing rifle scopes easily
Each rifle scope and illuminated dot sight that is zeroed to the barrel can be interchanged.
Quickest target acquisition when shooting over short distances thanks to the white contrast line in the sights and the white front sight. The open sights are completely made of steel and thus durable.
