The Over-Barrel Silencer is the ideal solution when short overall length is required. The combination of a special aluminum alloy and steel ensures it is lightweight while still having a long service life. It should be taken into account that the Over-Barrel Silencer can only be mounted on barrels without open sights. For retrofitting a muzzle thread with cover, the front sight must be removed.
Short length thanks to Blaser CompAction
Compact Engineering – the magazine is located right above the trigger unit which makes the R8 much shorter than conventional bolt-action rifles while having the same barrel length. That way you can experience the advantages of a rifle with a moderator while not missing out on the familiar pointability renowned for a Blaser rifle.
