Designed for maximum performance and minimum weight, the R8 Ultimate Carbon features a 100% hand-laid carbon fiber thumbhole stock built to withstand the most brutal hunting conditions.

Like other R8 rifles, the Ultimate Carbon comes with the Blaser precision trigger and manual cocking system. Optional upgrades include an adjustable comb and a recoil absorption system or adjustable recoil pad.
“The ruggedness, accuracy and ergonomics of this newest rifle in our top-performing carbon series make it an ideal choice for tough hunts in mountainous terrain or the backcountry when every ounce counts,” said Jason Evans, CEO, Blaser Group.
Available in numerous calibers from .22 LR to .500 Jeffery, including 6.5 Creedmoor and 6.5 PRC. Retail cost starts at $10,540.00 and depends on final configuration.
