just thought i'd put up a quick review of the Blaser R93 in case anyone was interested and hadnt had the chance to see one in action.
(no hijackers please - let this one run and feel free to add reviews if you have any experience of these rifles) positive or negative welcome, but not just "my mate had one and it wouldnt group, etc "
I purchased a second hand .308 a while ago, and have since added a .243 barrell. The stock, bolt and .308 barrell are over 10 years old and have accounted for many deer and even some pigs!, the .243 barrell was used semi professionally before i obtained it and shoots factor federal 100gns cloverleaf at 100m. I changed from my prohunter to the R93 because after a year and a half of inconsistency, i fired 4 separate blasers completely the same as their owners, same grouping, same poi, which is what i want from a rifle, pick it up, point and shoot, no worries about how you hold it or anything else. in my opinion, one of the best avaiable for the money (theyre not cheap). My plastic stocked version (the offroad) you can treat like sh!t and it just comes back for more. i use a t4 on the .308 and 8*56 hungarians on both (1" on .243, 30mm on .308).
this is a picture of my setup.
and a couple of R93 related links
this video looks worth a watch, if anyone has a copy, i wouldnt mind a borrow.
so anyone of thinking of getting one, come and join club, and never want another rifle again (apart from another blaser)
