Personal Training Day

Had the Blaser Tactical 2 out. 308 barrel on. Shooting some of Doc’s 155g hand-loads.  This was a personal training session so I didn’t film any content or produce any articles. But I know some of you like to see the Blaser, so what harm is a few pics?   Sincerely,  Marky www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”

Blaser R8 Pro-Tips

This is a general list of “how to” for the Blaser R8 rifles. Actually for all the Blaser straight-pull rifles: R8, R93, LRS, LRS2, Tactical 2.  Some of the things on this list are reflective of my views on the mechanics of the R8. Others are gleaned from experience in field conditions. From balmy summer days to sub-zero winter shooting.  …

Blaser Tactical 2 Import

This isn’t definite, but I have detected at least two dealers with NIB Blaser Tactical 2’s in stock. When reaching out to one dealer about this item, we inquired: New, Used, or New Old Stock? The dealer reported it was a newly imported rifle. And by the looks of the box, that appears to be the case.  So…has the German …

An official Armourer’s Manual and a official Blaser Service Schedule / maintenance manual.  I have decided to post them here for public download. I have also included a third manual which is the original owner’s manual that would have come with each Blaser …

Armory Chat 42 – Only one 338 Lapua Mag

Well…As we get closer to finishing the new rifle range, it’s almost impossible to not think about what rifles we will be able to shakedown on a regular basis.  A perfect example is the 338 Lapua Magnum Blaser Tactical 2. But…this reminds me I only have 1 magazine for that caliber.  Perhaps I better get on the ball and find …

Blaser LRS – CISM – UIT Magazines

An interesting development in the Blaser rifle world. A small custom shop known as Morlock Customs, out of California, is starting to make aftermarket products for the Blaser Tactical 2, LRS, LRS2, UIT and CISM line of rifles. Those who have been hurting for support from Germany will find his product line very interesting. His prices are on-par with Blaser …

Sunset on The Rifle Range

Unlike most people in the Shooting community I always make sure to shoot all year round.   And truth be told, when it starts getting cold; I really enjoy the quiet time. The ranges tend to be empty. The bugs are gone. And the air is crisp. What a great time to check / confirm your cold weather dope! Yes …

Blaser LRS2 – TAC2 Magazine Repair Update

Thanks to some research and help from our viewers, I have a quick and easy solution to solve the Blaser LRS – TAC magazine feed lip issue. It appears it is user induced. Either myself or the previous owner of the magazine depressed (read bent) a tab that is used to hold the lips in place. Luckily, the solution is …

The Payoff

When setting up Infrastructure on one of the new ranges, there’s no reason why I can’t also squeeze in a little trigger-time to boot? For those asking: Blaser R8 Professional. 243 match barrel. Steiner glass. Soon, we will have some shooting benches, tables, decking and barricades to work with. The Payoff is coming… Marky John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun” …

European Rifle Burst Test

These videos were filmed quite a long time ago and have been on the internet for years. They came to my attention when I was researching the strength of the Blaser actions. Occasionally these videos will come up and the only compilation I have ever been able to find has a distracting watermark across the middle of them and terrible …

Laying out of Blaser R8 Calibers

This post is in response to a very direct question I received about the Blaser R8 system. Specifically the caliber change feature. The sender wanted to know two things. One, how does the caliber change work? And two, will the rifle accept, “match barrels”? This last question can put the reader in the trick bag so I must tread carefully. …

Blaser Position Shooting- New Range Test

When building new ranges, before you spend big money on hiring bulldozers, it is strongly advised that you actually spend some time shooting on them first. 1.How does the land fall? 2.Are there any bump ups? 3.What about morning and afternoon sun? 4.Any drainage issues? 5.Are you creating drainage issues? 6.Any natural backstops? 7.What’s behind backstop if something goes through? …

Video — They said you can’t…

Shoot steel cased ammo. Out of your good guns. Your precision guns. Your custom guns. So who exactly is, “they” anyway? Some self-appointed guru? The guy with 10,000 posts on some gun forum? Some “operator” named, “Fiddleback 1” from SEAL Team 47? Look. I get it. But in the shooting world there really are only 2 types of people: those …

80 Dollars For a Mirage Band?

With the 1000 yard range project coming along swimmingly, we will be stretching out some of our hotter rounds a little more frequently. And with that shooting, some heat. Specifically mirage. Both my Blaser R8 and Tactical 2 barrels come with threaded attachment points for mirage bands. Blaser branded mirage bands. And as you might well know, Blaser is German …
