Dear All, Due to an on-going spinal problem I am considering (carefully) what rifle and calibre I ought to use in the future. During a conversation with a well known purveyor of firearms I was told that the Blaser R8 has less percieved recoil than normal turnbolts.
Is this true?
He also told me that Blaser can fit a recoil reducer in the stock of the rifle which would help even more to reduce felt recoil.
Has anyone used them, and if so what do you think of them?
I would have to sell my 6.5x55 Sako 75 finnlight to justify this measure, and I am unsure if it is worth it as the Sako is highly accurate.
Any information on the Blaser R8 would be appreciated, especially about the recoil. I would also like to know how easy they are to clean with all the locking lugs in the barrel?
Thank you in advance, Simon
