Haven't owned one, but I have shot plenty. I think they are one of the 7 wonders of the world. The straight pull bolt is crazy! The rifle has no "action" per se. The interchangeable barrel concept is cool. And they shoot stupid accurate. The bolt rides in the stock, and locks into the barrel. For the crazy system that it is, it's amazing.

I know it's had the hell engineered out of it, but I just can't get the thought of eating a bolt at high speed out of my head if something went wrong.

And yeah, they're $$$$.

I have owed about 20 of there products--they are excellent. I have 3 R8 frames 5 barrels right now--and a K95 in a 22 savage hi power right now. I have owned S2 doubles,F3 shotguns,R93s, R8s, K95s, and one D99 that was a double rifle shotgun drilling--really cool rifle. What's your question? If you would like to know more PM me I have owned a lot of their products

I bought my first one in 1997 R93 off-road--because I was left handed. 2 barrel set 257 WBY mag and 338 win mag...I killed a lot of stuff with that rig.

By far one of the most accurate rigs out of the box

Could be true for any bolt gun, just the bolt lug holding it into the action rather than the barrel.

true, which do you trust 2 lugs covering what 40% or less of the bolts cir conference or a Colette that covers 100% of the bolt circumference. Both work and you will never find a rifle with a shorter bolt throw.

The Blaser bolt system is MUCH stronger than any 2 or 3 locking lug action system, period.

My buddy just bought one and had it threaded. Chambered in 7mag, nice and balanced well. Not stupid accurate they are just as picky as any other rifle. We tried several brands and bullet weights and it seemed to like the Hornady 178’s the best.

That's sweet. Do you happen to have a family picture of them all together?

I owned most of those over 20 years--so did not have them all at once. I probably have a pick of my R93s some where I had 11 barrels at one time I had some cool ones like 10.3x60r (Swiss canton barrel). My D99 was the first one they imported into the US...it was a dang fine gun! A good friend of mine was a dealer and we traded a lot of stuff--I have pared down on blaser stuff--not because I don't like it--but they have just gotten ridiculous on pricing. $1200 for extra barrels and 400-500 for a scope mounts...not so bad when you look at Spurh mounts but they are not cheap...plus a R8 maindraw back is it's heavy....other than that they are a fine firearm.

I've owned two. Never really liked them.
They are so light that the recoil on larger calibers is hard to bear.
They are 1.5" guns at best and the interchangeable barrel deal isn't a good deal
The barrels are higher than most good rifles and you have to have a scope for each one.
The straight pull is pretty cool.
