The Blaser R8 Professional Success Stutzen has the same revolutionary stock as the R8 Professional Success that gives active hunters the crucial edge for continuous successful shooting. However the Stutzen version is more compact with a shorter barrel (20.5" to 23") and split Stutzen fore-end. The R8 Professional Success Stutzen stock provides a completely relaxed posture of shooting hand and arm, regardless of the aiming position. Thus, vexatious flinching is almost completely eliminated by itself providing the most important preparation for the accurate shot in any hunting conditions. The dynamic shape of the R8 Professional Success Stutzen underlines the high demands Blaser is placing on this product: simply the best for successful shooting!
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.
SPLIT STUTZEN FORE-END
Classic German split Stutzen fore-end.
Ergonomically optimized stock provides a relaxed hand and arm posture in any shooting position. Vexatious flinching is reduced to a minimum.
The R8 Versatility is a class of its own. This interchangeable system offers calibers from .222 Rem. to .500 Jeffery. Flawless return-to-zero accuracy for both scope mount and barrel insure perfect shot placement. Ideal for travel.
The R8 Trigger breaks like glass at 2 lbs (900 g). Desmodromic design for reliability under all conditions.
The R8 Straight Pull Action eliminates unnecessary movement.Insuring enough time for perfect shot placement. When aiming is measured in heartbeats. Ergonomically perfect in design and function.
The R8 Manual Cocking System offers superior safety. No conventional safety system surpasses an un-cocked striker. Pushing the cocking lever
forward in the off safe position cocks the striker and the rifle
is ready to fire.
Optional add-on Illumination Control (iC) couples the control of the reticle illumination to the operation of the rifle. A sensor in the eyepiece recognizes the position of the cocking slide and automatically regulates the switch-on/-off function of the illuminated reticle. Rifle Cocked = Illuminated Dot Active
