Blaser's F16 Game Grand Luxe shotgun is ahead of the game with its unique pointability making it the perfect hunting companion. Fine leaf arabesques lavishly worked into traditional "Basso relief" adorn the stylish long side plates of the F16 Heritage. This elegant shotgun can be combined upon request with game scenes or fine English Scroll. Its stock is made of the finest selected grade 8 walnut wood that has slowly grown in the high altitude of the Caucasus.
The Blaser F16 is the latest result of German engineering and experience. By devising the lowest profile receiver in its class, the F16 is provided with an exceptionally low center of gravity. This leads to an outstanding balance and less felt recoil at the same time making it the perfect companion for both hunters and ambitious clay target shooters. Only through the restless pursuit of perfection is it possible to create a perfectly balanced over and under shotgun with the lowest profile action on the market.
Performance and reliability are of the utmost importance and can only be attributed to the quality of materials used, individual craftsmanship and state of the art manufacturing technologies all packaged with an affordable price.
BEST IN CLASS TRIGGER
It is here where the ingenious German engineering comes in. Purely mechanical in design this single selective trigger breaks likes glass at 1,650g and operates independent of recoil. The thought impulse to ignition is rapidly implemented due to fast mechanics and a crisp trigger pull. In a world measured in milliseconds your F16 is a significant advantage with intuitive shooting.
BLASER IBS: INERTIAL BLOCK SYSTEM
The IBS® system eliminates the chances of fan ring or doubling and is integral to Blaser's World Class trigger’s reliability.
LOWEST PROFILE RECEIVER
The lowest profile receiver on the market provides an exceptionally low center of gravity for the shotgun, makes it extraordinary pointable and dynamic, immediately leading to a better shot.
SEMI ROUND BODY ACTION
This gives the F16 its dynamic looks. Less is more was the goal and it could only be achieved through the use of quality materials, craftsmanship and state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies. The accentuated dynamic and semi-rounded receiver body design make the new Blaser shotgun a companion that lies perfectly in your hands.
- Innovative, extremely at forcing cone. The shot stream passes into the cylindrical barrel as smoothly as possible with minimal deformation and without any dangerous increase in pressure
- “Overbore” internal diameter of 18.65mm (0.735")
- 12/76 gauge with additional steel shot proofing
BLASER EBS: EJECTION BALL SYSTEM
Whether or not you hit your target is decided before you even mount your shotgun. Smooth movements controlled by intuition and precise mechanical operations are the keys to success. The entire process starts when closing the shotgun. Conventional ejector systems cock their ejector springs when the gun is closed, which leads to increased resistance and weak ejection over time. This resistance interferes with the smooth flow of movements and disturbs the shooter's concentration. The EBS. system activates the ejectors when a shot is fired and cocks them when opening the gun. The ejector springs are always decocked when the gun is stored in order to prevent spring fatigue. Resistance when closing the gun is always kept to a minimum, whether the ejectors were previously activated or not.
INNOVATIVE MONOCOQUE RECEIVER DESIGN
Design concepts developed in Formula1 racing were the basics in selecting of materials for the F16. From the unique Gun Metal Grey surface coatings to laser hardening principals developed for cars traveling at 230MPH. Safety and strength are more than words they are a necessity.
The F16 has been designed from the ground up to use steel shot and dealing with the stresses of using this type of ammunition have been incorporated throughout the design process.
