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 to the range only a few times, and then stored away. The rifle is in Excellent condition with little sign of use. It really looks great with its blued barrel and satin receiver. Top this with your favorite optic and you will have one sweet target rifle. Please see our photos and good luck!
