Optimum barrel bedding - Large-scale barrel bedding exclusively in the receiver.
Blaser saddle mount - Mount is positioned directly above the chamber. The barrel floats freely. The point of impact remains constant.
Blaser radial locking system - Extremely strong and concentric. The locking system locks directly in the barrel without rotary motion.
Perfect stock design - Relaxed positioning of the hand. Steep pistol grip with distinct palm swell and optimal cast. Straight comb.
Easy to take down and clean - The R8 is stripped down and reassembled within a few seconds. Snow, dirt, leaves or needles are easily removed.
Locked magazine -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.
Excellent protection - 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.
Around the world with one rifle - Thanks to exchangeable barrels, the R8 is the ideal companion on all continents no matter what kind of game you hunt. Trusted operation, familiar balance and stock are valuable factors for hunting success.
Changing stocks when needed - The precious wooden stock can be preserved by simply replacing it with the R8 Professional synthetic stock.
Changing rifle scopes easily - Each rifle scope and illuminated dot sight that is zeroed to the barrel can be interchanged.
Open sights -Quickest target acquisition when shooting over short distances thanks to the white contrast line in the sights and the white front sight. The open sights are completely made of steel and thus durable.
