Blaser's R8 Professional Success Ruthenium rifle uses one of the world’s rarest precious metals for this top-class hunting rifle boasting an elaborate Ruthenium finish. The DLC (Diamond-Like-Carbon) coating on bolt head, trigger and bolt handle ball underlines its high-end appearance and at the same time protects against the most extreme external influences. The impregnated leather inlays round off its sophisticated design. Blaser's signature Professional Success thumb-hole stock gives active hunters the crucial edge for continuous successful shooting. The R8 Professional Success Ruthenium 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 Professional Success Ruthenium 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.
