So yesterday I found a new product for the Blaser R8 rifle system. Akila in Slovenia is selling a R8 based chassis system. As I type this, it appears they are still building their website. But poking around here is what I “think” I know:
- Price 2400 Euros.
- Includes the serialized receiver block
- System seems to be AR stock compatible.
- User can select left or right folding stock.
- Rear mono-pod included.
- Chassis length standalone folded: 23.3”
- Chassis length folded with 22” barrel: 30.35”
- Weight without magazine: 4.88lbs
Why am I interested in this? Simple. My main precision rifle is a Blaser Tactical 2. That is actually based off the original R93 hunting rifle. I knew over time, that the R8 system would mature with more and more aftermarket support.
And since I already have a Blaser R8 with multiple calibers and barrel profiles, this is a super easy decision.
Let’s hope they get these into the US? I’d love to have one. Here is their website [CLICK HERE] if you wish to contact them. Tell them we sent ya!
