Gun Room: Blaser's Custom R8 "German Hound" - A One-Of-A-Kind Piece!

Having worked with Blaser for decades now, the level at which they operate with both the functionality of the firearm and the aesthetic of the firearm continue to astound us at Somarriba, Inc. till this day.

The combination of impeccable German engineering and master engravers with decades of experienced have produced this gorgeous, unique piece, the R8 "German Hound"!


Before going into the game scene engraved into the receiver, let us remind you of the practicality of the R8's modular design.

  • Modular system that allows for easy take-down, cleaning, and increases overall reliability

  • It is easily stripped down and reassembled in a matter of seconds without the slightest change in the point of impact.

  • Hammer-forged barrels and precise-machined parts ensure the highest precision on every shot

  • Desmodromic trigger mechanism guarantees your trigger will function even when iced or heavily soiled

  • The R8 system ensures that stock deformation due to extreme weather can never affect the position of the barrel

As gunsmithes and hunting outfitters we have range-tested the R8 countless times for clients and over many years the results have been consistent with less than 3/4" groups at a hundred yards. When it comes to taking that perfect shot you rest assured that the R8 leaves nothing to chance.


Now for the game scene, both sides of the receiver feature a hunting scene with German hounds along with leaf engravings on the borders as well as on the bottom of the receiver and on the trigger guard. When it comes to engravings of this caliber, it's best to let the picture tell the story.
