Our Assessment: The Blaser Model R8 rifles are known for their ease of barrel interchangeability and their sub minute of angle accuracy. They have nice 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 in 2012 and is a Professional model with a dark forest green stock with inlaid rubber grip panels. This one is chambered in .204 Ruger and will be a great varmint or long range shooting rifle once you get an internal magazine installed which should not be hard to come by. This is a great opportunity to pick up a premium rifle! Get those bids in. Please see our photos and good luck!
