General Safety Rules Blaser R8

Your new Blaser bolt action rifle model R8 is characterised by special design features, making it very different from other bolt action rifles. The enhanced safety features of your Blaser rifle should never induce you to ignore the necessary care and legal provisions with respect to handling arms. Please check first, whether you have the correct operating instructions: the model R8 and the calibre are indicated on the left side of the barrel, on its lower end.

CAUTION:

Please read these operating instructions completely, before using the rifle. Only hand on the rifle together with the operating instructions.

Please ask your specialized dealer for an in-depth explanation of your rifle and instruction in its use, as a supporting measure to these operating instructions.

General safety rules for handling firearms

• Ensure that firearm and ammunition never pass into the hands of unauthorised persons.

• Always keep firearm and ammunition separately, in a secured unit and inaccessible to unauthorised persons.

• Observe applicable legal provisions for carrying and storing arms and ammunition. • Familiarise yourself thoroughly with the handling of your firearm and practise all functions and actions with the firearm un- loaded, before starting to carry and use it. • Consider every firearm as loaded and ready to fire, unless you have convinced yourself of the contrary by opening the action and checking the chamber (barrel). Even when unloaded, a firearm has to be handled like a loaded firearm.
• During any handling, always hold the muzzle in a direction where you can neither jeopardise nor damage persons or property.

General Safety Rules

  • Before loading the firearm, always check, whether there are oil residues or other foreign matter in the chamber or barrel. Oil residues in chamber or barrel may cause distinct shifts in the point of impact! Foreign matter in the barrel (e.g. water, snow, soil) may cause a detonation of the barrel, leading to severe injuries of the shooter or persons in the vicinity! Ensure that no foreign matter can enter the barrel, also during use!
  • Only use ammunition which meets the CIP requirements, in particular with regards to the maximum gas pressure P max according to CIP regulations.
  • Every Blaser rifle is controlled and tested by the state proofhouse according to the requirements of the proofing-law and -regulations, using proof cartridges exceeding the maximal allowed gas pressure P max by a minimum of 25%. If gas pressures exceed proof-level, the safety of the user and/ or third parties can no longer be guaranteed. The same applies to cartridge cases, where the seal function is no longer correct through obturation.
  • Load your firearm only immediately before use.
  • Disengage from safe position (cock) your firearm only immediately before shooting. Hold barrel into a direction out of danger during disengaging (cocking).

• Check the surrounding area, before every shot.

• Point your firearm only at a target, which you have clearly identified.

• Only put your finger on the trigger, when you want to shoot.

• Only fire a shot, when a secure backstop exists.

• When a cartridge fails, wait approx. 60 seconds before opening the action, to avoid danger through hang-fire.

• Wear ear protection during shooting.

Unload your firearm

• before crossing obstacles
• before climbing and leaving raised hides, • before entering a building,
• before climbing into a vehicle,
• before entering a built area,
• and also, when you lay down or hand on the firearm temporarily.

2. Safety and Bolt Handle Lock for Blaser R8

Safety system of Blaser R8

The safety system of the Blaser bolt action rifle model Blaser R8 is based on an decocked firing pin spring: Thanks to the safety slide (cocking slide), the firing pin spring is cocked (engaged) immediately before the shot is fired. When repeating, the rifle is cocked again automatically. In its secured (decocked) position, the bolt handle is also blocked to prevent unintentional opening of the bolt assembly when moving the rifle, provided that the handle was fully closed.

2.1. Disengaging from safe position (cocking)

2.1 manual utilizare blaser r8

  • Push safety slide (cocking slide) forward powerfully with your thumb, all the way to the stop, and lift thumb off. Doing so, the safety slide (cocking slide) locks into its cocked position.

Red square not visible, bolt handle in front position. The rifle is now loaded, put on”safe” (decocked) and locked against unintentional opening.

ATTENTION:

If the magazine is removed from the cocked rifle with closed bolt assembly, the safety slide (cocking slide) will automatically decock into safe position. The main spring will also decock. If the magazine is removed when the bolt assembly is open and cocked, the safety slide (cocking slide) will remain cocked. The main spring will remain cocked.

CAUTION:

Only cock rifle immediately before firing, at all times. When no shot is fired, lock (de- cock) rifle again immediately.When a shot is fired and the rifle has been repeated, the rifle should be decocked again immediately, if the next shot is not required.

4.2. The optional Atzl Match-Hunt-Trigger

General:
The Atzl Match-Hunt-Trigger provides the possibility of choosing between a light, com- petition orientated trigger pull and a heavier, hunting orientated trigger pull. Selecting the trigger pull is performed without use of tools by using the selector on the magazine frame with the magazine removed (refer to Pic. 4.2.1). Besides the exchangeable magazine with selector, a special trigger unit in the receiver is also required (refer to Pic. 4.2.2). The fitting of the Atzl Match-Hunt-Trigger may not under any circumstances be fitted by anybody else than Blaser Jagdwaffen GmbH in Isny.

When using calibers .375 Blaser Mag., .375 H&H Mag., .416 Rem. Mag. and .458 Lott, the cartridges cannot be used in the Atzl Match-Hunt-Trigger, if the total length (maximum cartridge length L6) exceeds the length of 90.5 mm.

With the specific weight of the currently fitted trigger unit. The selector will have no function. The use of an exchangeable magazine without selector in a receiver with the Atzl Match-Hunt-Trigger is not possible, the exchangeable magazine will not engage.

Function:
Choosing which trigger pull is achieved by moving the selector:
• Position “Match”
• Position “Hunt”

Advice: The Atzl Match-Hunt-Trigger exchangeable magazine can be used without limitations in an Blaser R8 without the Atzl Match-Hunt- Trigger unit. The trigger pull will correspond

The Atzl Match-Hunt-Trigger reacts sensitively when selected on “Match” because of the low trigger pull. If the trigger blade is pushed forward and quickly released, this could cause an accidental discharge.

Precaution is required when the trigger finger contacts the trigger blade and general safety regulations should be strictly followed when using a loaded and cocked rifle.

CAUTION:

The Blaser R8 bolt action rifle model is equipped with a direct pull trigger. Its setting can and may only be changed at the factory. Please check the trigger regularly for smooth movement, with the rifle unloaded and locked (decocked). Hardended oil and/or foreign matter may affect proper functioning of the trigger and cause malfunctions.

7. Exchanging Barrels

There are 6 caliber groups (refer to table on p. 32). When changing from one caliber group to another during a barrel exchange, the bolt head has to be changed as well, so that it corresponds to the caliber group of the interchangeable barrel actually mounted. Please refer to the table on page 32 for proper allocation of suitable interchangeable barrels. Furthermore, bolt heads and barrels are imprinted with a symbol for the respective caliber group. These markings have to compare after assembly is completed.

Within one caliber group, barrels may be interchanged at random, without having to exchange the bolt head.

9.6 manual utilizare blaser r8

Note:

In order to avoid an impairment of shooting performance and ensure flawless function please pay careful attention to the following requirements:

  • The Stutzen forearm must be connected and screwed together with the stock cor- rectly.
  • Always make sure that the barrel bedding is clean! Please also make sure that the supporting surface in the Stutzen fore- arm end is clean! Residues of oil and gun grease between barrel and action have a negative effect on the rifles accuracy.

Safety Instructions:

  • WARNING: A permanent magnet is fitted in the Stutzen forearm tip to hold the forearm in position (refer to pic. 9.6). The magnetic field from the permanent magnet can disrupt the function of cardiac implants or pacemakers. The Stutzen forearm tip therefore should not come into close contact (5 cm or less) with a cardiac implant or pacemaker.
  •  ATTENTION: Permanent magnetic fields can also erase data from ma- gnet storage mediums, e.g. com- puter discs, hard drives, bank cards and credit cards, making them useless. Therefore permanent ma- gnets should not come into close contact with such storage mediums.
  • ADVICE: The Blaser R8 Stutzen with barrel and the Blaser R8 Stutzen without barrel were examined by TÜV Süd accor- ding to “Packing Instructions 953 for UN2807 Magnetized Material”. The product is not classified as UN2807 Magnetized Material. The product may be transported by commercial and cargo aircraft.

Since 06/2014 the Blaser Safari Sight is also adjustable. Adjustment is carried out using an Allen key SW 2 analog to the open sight (refer to above).

Older safari sights are not adjustable, but are zeroed at the factory over 30 meters with a standard front sight height of 6 mm. Other heights and rear sights are available at extra cost.

The Blaser bolt action rifle model R8 is pre- pared for installation of the Original Blaser Saddle Mount (DBP). We assume that your scope has been mounted correctly by your specialized dealer on the barrel assigned to it.

11.1. Installing the scope

  • Open lid of rear and front holding elements and swivel both to the front/up with your thumb.
  • Hold scope with your right hand at the center tube, above the mount, so that you can reach the holding element at the front with your thumb.
  • Hold rifle at the forearm with your left hand, support buttstock on your thigh.
  • Insert the two round studs at the scope mount carefully into the two oval holes sunk into the upper right side of the barrel, tilt scope to the left onto the barrel and hold it in this position.
  • Press the opened holding elements, first the one in front and then the one in the back, backwards/downwards with your thumb, until they reach their stop position (tension!). (If this is too easy or requires force, then the mount is maladjusted. Have your dealer correct this according to the factory instruc- tions. The ideal pressure for closing the holding elements is roughly the same as the pressure required for the safety slide (cocking slide) of the rifle).
  • Now close the two lids of the holding ele- ments.

Please ensure that the engaging surfaces are clean and free from grease!

11.2. Removing the scope

Barrels
• General information on barrels:
Blaser barrels are made using a high quality, quenched and tempered steel. The highest require- ments are fulfilled in regard to purity, homogeneity and mechanical properties – particularly in the high dynamic sector. The materials quality is monitored and documented by various factory inspections and permanent quality control.

• Barrel external:

The barrel surface is externally plasma nitrated and blued, which is a excellent protection against scratching and with correct maintenance – a high corrosion protection, not however a 100% corro- sion protection.

ATTENTION:

The firearm should not be stored with a sealed muzzle or a muzzle protector!

CAUTION:

Under all circumstances, oberserve instructions and warnings given by the product manufacturer for use of product.

Metal parts:

Keep all metal parts of the rifle clean and slightly oiled at all times.

Stock preservative is not suitable for polishing metal parts!

Spare magazine:

Always keep the spare magazine clean and free of contaminants!

Stocks:

All wooden stocks of Blaser hunting rifles are oil- rubbed. We recommend to polish them regularly with standard stock care products.

Gun oil is not suitable for stock care!

Care instructions for Blaser R8 Professional Success with leather inserts:
The leather is impregnated and regular care is not necessary. Cleaning should only be required if con- taminated:

• Use glass cleaner for light contamination

• Use a soft eraser for heavy contamination.

Optics:

Please refer to care instructions of the optics manufacturer.

CAUTION:

When oiling hunting rifles, care has to be taken that no oil or grease gets into the trigger and action system. Under certain conditions,oil and grease can resinify (harden), causing dangerous disruptions of functioning. Please have your rifle checked by your specialized dealer prior to each hunting season or hunting trip. Every rifle is a piece of technical equipment requiring regular checks.

We recommend that the surface is kept clean and that a thin application of suitable gun oil is regu- larly applied. Especially, when the barrel is moist or has sweated inside a synthetic gun case. Here, the barrel should be wiped dry and as written above – lightly oiled.

• Barrel internal:

The internal surface of the barrel is cold forged and has a very good surface quality. The smooth sur- face improves the corrosion protection, does not however substitute proper care and maintenance. We strongly advise that the chamber and barrel are free of oil before use, so as to ensure there is no difference in the point of impact.

After the barrel has been fired, the barrel should be cleaned and conserved, as the powder residues in the chamber and barrel will attract moisture. Special attention should be applied to the cham- ber: Hand sweat is transported into the chamber by the ammunition. This can react aggressively and cause corrosion. If ammunition residue (carbon/ copper fouling) can be seen, then we recommend that the barrel be chemically cleaned.

After chemical cleaning, the barrel and in particular, the chamber should be wiped dry and oiled

16. Warranty Conditions for Blaser R8

1. Manufacturer’s warranty

Warranty of Blaser Jagdwaffen GmbH is provided in addition to statutory warranty claims by dealers, provided, that the enclosed firearms certificate is filled in completely and received by Blaser Jagdwaffen GmbH within ten days after the date of sale. Warranty is provided exclusively for the first purchaser having his residence in the country of purchase.

The warranty applies to the metal and plastic parts of the rifle only, including original Blaser riflescope mounts, but not the rifle scope. Wooden parts of the rifle require special care and, being natural pro- ducts, are subject to natural changes. Warranty for wooden parts is excluded.

The warranty period amounts to ten years, start- ing with the date of sale. It includes any defects of and damages to the rifle (metal and plastic parts), which are proven to be due to faulty material or manufacturing. Within this framework, the manufacturer shall bear the costs for material and working time. For performance of work under this warranty, the rifle has to be returned to the specialized dealer or the production company in Isny.

Risk and costs of transportation of the rifle (out- ward and return) shall be borne by the customer. Warranty is performed in the discretion of manufacturer by repair or replacement of defective parts; replaced parts pass into manufacturer’s property.

2. Warranty for gun efficiency

The firing precision of a gun depends on a multitude of factors. The most important factor is the ammunition. Not every barrel fires equally well with every type of ammunition, there may be considerable differences in efficiency. The scope and its mount are of the same importance. Parallax, loose reticles, defects in reticle adjustment and faulty mounting are the most common causes for unsatisfactory gun efficiency. For these reasons, you should use branded scopes, mounted by a specialist, and you should tune in the ammunition to your rifle by testing several types of ammunition.

Ammunition of the same make and charge may exhibit different efficiency and impact point characteristics from one manufacturing run to the other and from one rifle to the other.When the optimum of ammunition, rifle scope and mount were selected, we provide a warranty for the excellent efficiency of our rifles. Complaints regarding gun efficiency have to be brought forward in writing within 20 days after the date of sale. We reserve the right to submit the rifle to an independent institution for verification (DEVA or Staatliches Beschussamt) [government proofhouse]. If excellent gun efficiency is confirmed there, we are entitled to claim the costs incurred for the tests from customer.

3. Scope of warranty

Work performed under warranty does not cause any prolongation or renewal of the warranty period for the rifle or built in spare parts. The warranty period for installed spare parts ends at the same time as the warranty period for the entire Blaser R8 rifle.

4. Guarantee exclusion

The guarantee shall be excluded with:

• Damage that is caused as the result of normal wear and tear, with non-observance of the operating instructions or improper use or handling and if the gun shows mechanical damages of any kind.

• Damages that are the result of force majeure or environmental influences

• Repairs, treatment or changes to the gun performed by third parties.

• Use of reloaded or non-CIP-permitted ammunition.

• Blueing carried out by a third party.

More extensive or other claims, especially those that refer to compensation for damages that go beyond the Blaser R8 gun itself (consequential damages) shall be excluded (provided liability is not legally ordered as compulsory).
