Blaser Group adds to its carbon series with the introduction of the Blaser R8 Ultimate Carbon bolt-action rifle. Designed for maximum performance and minimum weight, the R8 Ultimate Carbon features a 100-percent hand-laid carbon-fiber thumbhole stock, built to withstand the most brutal hunting conditions. Featuring vibration- and recoil-reduction technology, combined with a high torsional strength, the Ultimate Carbon is ideal for mountain hunters and others who value a durable lightweight rifle.

This version of the modular straight-pull R8 has elastomer grip inserts, while the R8 Ultimate Carbon Leather model features handsome dark-brown weather-proof leather on the grip, fore-end, and cheek piece. Like other R8 rifles, the Ultimate Carbon comes with a Blaser precision trigger and manual cocking system. Optional upgrades include an adjustable comb and a recoil absorption system, or an adjustable recoil pad.

“The ruggedness, accuracy and ergonomics of this newest rifle in our top-performing carbon series make it an ideal choice for tough hunts in mountainous terrain or the backcountry when every ounce counts,” said Jason Evans, CEO, Blaser Group.

The rifle is available in numerous calibers from .22 LR to .500 Jeffery, including 6.5 Creedmoor and 6.5 PRC. For more information, visit blaser.de/en/MSRP: $10,540
