    Blaser R93

    Keep reading of how superior Blaser's are, well recently had a continental client arrive for Buck stalking with a Blaser R93, first outing went to take shot rifle would not fire, bolt would not open to eject round, took rifle to local gunshop, they were unable to open the rifle, very unhappy client flew home with a rifle with a live round LODGED IN THE CHAMBER

    Still waiting to hear the outcome but believe rifle has had to be returned to the factory

    What sort of ammo was your client using?

    Bogtrotter,

    Another nail in the coffin of airline security as both they and H.M. Customs allowed a loaded firearm onto an aircraft

    Methinks not.

    Flew with well known British airline from London, one of the few that will still carry firearms, rifle in aluminium rifle case
    checked in collected at destination.

    Yeah, but did he have a 243 barrel fitted to the Blaser?

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    At least with the R93, the weapon can be safely de-cocked. But flying with "one up the spout" .... ye gods !!!!
