Our Assessment: The Blaser R93 is a revolutionary design introduced in 1993. The design was not content with simply incorporating unique features such as a collet-locking bolt, straight-pull action or Blaser’s proprietary quick-detach scope mount system, it is completely modular. From the stock to the barrel to the bolt, the rifles can be configured for everything from a .22 LR plinker to a .375 H&H Magnum safari rifle, to a .308 UIT competition target rifle. This example is an R93 UIT (L’Union Internationale de Tir/ISSF), intended for use in precision shooting matches. The rifle is in Fine-Excellent condition with evidence of light, responsible use by a previous owner and comes with a single magazine, a Centra globe front sight with adjustable aperture and is ready to accept the rear sight of your choice. Of course, it will also accept Blaser scope bases and with a few screwdrivers, you can set it up however you please. Please see our photos and good luck!
