Blaser's R8 Professional Success Carbon rifle utilizes carbon fiber, best known from the racing sports, to offer an astoundingly high strength at an extremely low weight. It only stands to reason that this material should be used for what is currently the best thumbhole stock on the market. The joining of carbon fiber with robust and luxurious leather inserts in the grip, fore-end and butt stock results in a never-before-seen combination, one that reflects the best of both worlds in a unique as well as highly accurate hunting rifle. The unique thumb-hole 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 Carbon Success 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.
