    Blaser R8 Success Stock Colour

    I've decided to buy an R8 success because I like them (no need for any anti Blaser posts please). I've handled one and it feels great. My only question is about stock colour, it's available in either dark brown or green, I'm not going for the leather inlays, so it'll be the black elastomer inlays.

    Im I swayed towards the brown at the moment, but have only seen a green one in the flesh. Have any R8 owners seen both side by side? We're you undecided and if so, which one did you go for and does the brown look like it does in the promotional photos?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Mac,

    I had a Blaser R8 Success in Brown and now I have it in green.

    In reality the brown is quite a bit darker than it is shown in the photo that you provided.
    To most people at a glance the brown looks like black.

    I wasn't a major fan of the brown and have since changed to green. In my opinion The green is far a nicer colour.

    In the greater scheme of things it wont make much difference, but as Blaser's are not cheap Id suggest you put thought into your decision.

    I hope this helps good luck with your choice

    Thanks for the replies, I think I'll have to wait until I can see them side by side. Either way, I'm sure I won't be disappointed, brown or green both look good.
