Blaser - R8
EASY TO TAKE DOWN AND CLEAN
Even in the bush the R8 is stripped down and reassembled within a few seconds. Snow, dirt, leaves or needles are easily removed.
The R8 magazine is only released when simultaneously pressing both release buttons. Unintentional drop out of the magazine is virtually impossible. In addition, both release buttons can be locked by a lever inside the magazine. This is the most effective protection against magazine loss.
All metal parts of the R8 are either made of rustproof material or protected against corrosion with a specific finish. Barrel inside and chamber are polished and need conventional care. The closed construction of the R8 receiver prevents foreign object damage. When the magazine is stored outside the rifle, a protective cover will keep the dirt out.
DESMODROMIC TRIGGER MECHANISM
One hundred percent reliability – even when iced or heavily soiled. The trigger system of the R8 is force-controlled. Cycling the receiver automatically resets the trigger.
