The brand new Blaser R8 Professional Success hunting rifle is the latest model from the world-leading German sporting gunmaker.
Blaser R8 Professional Success
The Professional Success is the latest rifle in Blaser’s highly regarded R8 series, and follows on from the well-received R8 Professional.
It combines the proven R8 straight-pull bolt-action with a radical new stock design that aids accurate shooting in hunting conditions.
The R8 Professional Success stock is a thumbhole design that provides a completely relaxed posture for the shooting hand and arm, regardless of aiming position.
This in turn minimises flinch.
Product designer Stan Maes has managed to achieve this technical breakthrough in a stock that is stylish and practical, and has the unique Blaser look.
The new rifle is available in a full range of calibres from .222 Rem to .357 H&H Mag.
The stock comes in a choice of finishes: dark forest green or dark brown synthetic, with inlays of elastomer or specially impregnated leather.
The groundbreaking stock design of the Blaser R8 Professional Success was hailed as one of the top innovations at IWA 2012, and will now be available in the UK through the official Blaser distributors, Open Season Ltd.
It will be launched on the Team Wild stand in Gunmakers’ Row at the Midland Game Fair.
