Safari Selous Blaser R8 Barrel. 300WM.

WTT – Blaser R8 Selous 300WM Barrel For AimPoints

Ok. I am in need of some AimPoint red dots. We need two of them. They must be a T2, H2’s or Comp M5’s. The reason being we need to magnify them 6x so the dots need to work zoomed in. So H1’s or T1’s won’t work. 

If you only have a single Aimpoint you wish to trade? We can probably work it out by finding some more trade bait in your pile. pastedGraphic.png 

What I have for trade is a functionally new Blaser R8 Selous Safari 300wm barrel. That means sights and a sling band. 

It has never been taken afield. 

Never had slings mounted on it. 

Shot less than 10 times. 

Has not had a scope mounted on it. 

Why am I trading? As some of you are aware, we have been playing with the GRS chassis system over here. And I have decided that I will be sticking with it. A such, this heavy weight safari barrel with sights does not fit through the fore end of the chassis. Also knocking the sights off and having it threaded for a suppressor seems like a silly way to spend money. So instead of making it into another project, we are looking to move it. 

Why we choose 300wm instead of the other safari calibers? For us it is more practical for use in North America for hunting or target shooting. 

It has sat in one of our safes for some years and has just collected dust beyond the initial function test. Sights have not been zero’ed. 

Special note. You will need a Safari / Match channel on your stock to mount this barrel. It’s super easy to do and most Blaser dealers can do it. So that is no big deal. For those wondering, this barrel weighs just under 4lbs. EuroOptic has them for $2405 currently. We don’t need to get anywhere near that but we can’t take a $700 single RDS trade for this barrel either. 

Not looking for cash at this time as this is for an armory project. 

Attached are photos of the barrel.
