Thread: Anyone with a blaser near newmarket

  1. #1

    Anyone with a blaser near newmarket

    I don't suppose there is anyone close(ish) to me, Barton Mills, near Newmarket, with a Blaser either R93 or R8....... Just want to handle one before taking the plunge, I don't know of any dealers stocking them round here, I'm not after firing it, just a chance to handle, mount etc.....

    cheers

    I have a left handed R8 which probably won't help you. However you are welcome to handle it if you are left handed. I go past Newmarket most days. Alternatively try John Bradshaw at Fotheringay near Peterborough.

    I'm sure the country store in sawston, about ten minutes from Newmarket stock a few blasers and the guy that runs it shoots one.

    Thanks all, been to the country store this evening and had a play.....
    glad I did, really not convinced what all the fuss is about if I'm honest...... Don't get me wrong, nice, but not sure what they do that a normal bolt action doesn't do just as well (and quieter). Back to the drawing board then for the time being!

    i agree, nice but not that nice to warrant the near religious zeal about them !
