Our Assessment: The Blaser Model R84 rifles are known for their ease of barrel interchangeability and their sub minute of angle accuracy. They have unusual features for a hunting rifle such as a floating barrel and a safety that locks both the bolt and firing pin. This model was built only for a few short years between 1988 and 1994, when it was replaced by a sporting version of the R-93 sniper rifle. If you mount a scope on the rear of the barrel, there is no need to re-zero the scope when switching scoped barrels on the same rifle. This rifle looks as though it was taken out in the field a few times, and then stored away. The rifle is in Fine condition with light wear in the stocks and a few light marks in the metal. It really looks great with its blued barrel and satin receiver. Chambered for 7mm Remington Magnum, once you find a replacement magazine, this rifle will be suitable for a variety of game. If you can source extra barrels, you have a rifle that can just about do it all. Please see our photos and good luck!
