The R8 Professional S comes with the same specs and features as the R8 Professional, but with a fixed magazine unit. The new R8 Professional S is loaded or unloaded through the ejection port just as the original R93. The rifle is designed for hard use: elastomer inlays support secure grip and aiming even in wet conditions. The specially developed recoil pad combines outstanding recoil reduction with excellent sliding characteristics.
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
