Blaser Group adds to its top-performing carbon series with the introduction of the new 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 and high tortional strength, the Ultimate Carbon is ideal for mountain hunters and others who value craftsmanship, accuracy, repeatability, and reliability in a durable lightweight rifle.

This newest 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, forearm, and cheekpiece. Like other R8 rifles, the Ultimate Carbon comes with the Blaser precision trigger and manual cocking system.

Optional upgrades include an adjustable comb and a recoil absorption system or 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.

Available in numerous calibers from .22 LR to .500 Jeffery, including 6.5 Creedmoor and 6.5 PRC.

Retail cost starts at $10,540 and depends on final configuration.
