Blaser Introduces New R8 Ultimate X Rifle with 10 Round Magazines.
Training, competition, driven hunt: The R8 Ultimate X makes the wish of many hunters and shooters – to have a R8 with a larger capacity – come true. Thanks to an ingenious idea, it is now possible to fit a magazine with a capacity of 10 rounds into the rifle.
The new design allows enough space even for larger magnum cartridges, too. In order to increase the magazine capacity, the trigger system has been removed from the rifle’s magazine unit and has been incorporated into a newly developed extension of the receiver instead. The Blaser saddle mount can still be used with the R8 Ultimate X. Due to the slightly increased length of the rifle, it may be necessary to adjust the eye relief to the optics according to individual preferences.
The standard available configuration consists of an adjustable comb, an adjustable recoil pad or the new Compact recoil pad and a match bolt handle ball. With the new compact recoil pad, a fixed stock length of 350 mm can be easily realized on the R8 Ultimate.
