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
