R8 Professional S

One of the newest guns from Blaser, the R8 Professional S rifle shares many of the features found in the existing R8 line. However, instead of having a removable trigger and magazine housing, the R8 Professional S loads and unloads through the ejection port.

Existing mounts, barrels, bolts and other accessories for the existing R8 rifles will work with this one as well. As with the other R8 rifles, this rifle has a relatively quick way to change calibers in the field. This video shows the modularity of the original R8 rifle:

The R8 Professional S has a brown and black stock with elastomer inlays on the gripping surfaces. These rifles are available in a wide range of calibers and have a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $2895.

    Blaser it's 2015, give us a detachable mag in various sizes.

      @Toms They did in 2008. This is for the people than fear dropping a magazine when hunting dangerous game. It's a boutique upgrade from the R8 that comes standard with the detachable mag / trigger group.

    Given the tone of the vid, I was half expecting him to end with: 'Call this on screen number now to receive not one, not two but three extra magazine trigger groups absolutely free when you order the Blaser R8 in the next half hour!"
