    Can't see how. The magazine sits directly above the trigger group. You can hold the top round down, half close the bolt and drop an extra round into the chamber. That's about it.

    Agreed. Can't see how from a design perspective I could cram more than 4 rounds into my R93 - three in the magazine and one up the spout.

    I also had a good look at my R93 and cant see either how extra rounds could be added, but it was worth asking the question, as there are some clever guys on here.
    The reason i ask was that i had 8 boar come close buy me and deeply felt that 4 rounds were insuficied !!!
    It feels like a rifle desinged for boar shooting, but with only 4 rounds it felt a little lacking !

    If all else fails consider trading your r93 in for the r8. If you felt the need you could get an additional magazine/trigger unit. If you start with 2 fully loaded magazines plus 1 chambered that gives 9 rounds..... you could even afford to miss with 1 shot!

    Buy a matching pair and have a loader?

    What happens when 10 boar come through? Are you then going to get another mag? Its like pheasant shooting, how many times have you had the opportunity to shoot more than 2? Doesn't mean you'd consider turning up with a 10 shot semi? I can understand that boar pose more of a threat than pheasants, and assume thats why you wanted a larger mag capacity?

    The simple answer is that if you want a high-capacity magazine you don't want a Blaser.

    I don't care who you are (barring maybe Prince Franz-Albert), I doubt any of us could get off more than two or three decent shots at a sounder of boar crossing a ride or running through trees. I have managed to take down two animals from a group precisely once, and those were two Roe who practically ran into me, ranges were very short, feet, not yards.

    I think the idea of using seven or eight rounds from a bolt gun is silly, but if you think you are up to it, and have a need of it, Sauer do a specialist driven boar version of the 202 with a big magazine.

    Built my own driven game rifle. 308, for some reason 11 fit in the mag and one up the pipe make it 12... if needed, I can tape another mag to it
