The Blaser R8 Kilombero Rifle is a high-performance big game rifle with classic looks. The bolt action rifle R8 Kilombero features every technical advantage possible to aid a successful African hunting trip.
SAFARI BARREL CONTOUR
Features a larger muzzle diameter (22 mm). This increases weight compared to the Standard R8 barrel (depending on barrel length and caliber).
A stainless steel cylinder filled with tungsten beads is inserted into the stock. The stock weight is increased as well as the balance of the gun. This kickstop reduces recoil by about 20%.
Silver recoil pad in red. The 2.7 cm recoil pad reduces recoil considerably.
R8 STEEL RECEIVER
The blued steel receiver is black bronzed and increases weight of the rifle by approximately 550 g.
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
