    Blaser r93 308 or R.E.M. Mag.

    Hi all wouldn't mind trying a blaser so if you have one that you would be looking to part with I would like to hear from you. Would also look at part trading with a sako finnlight in 260.

    Get another Sako or a T3. Seriously you ll end up there Not being rude. It's not worth it . @BRADS

    If you want multiple calibers and to own multi calibers then own multiple rifles it's way easier
    If you are set on one or five calibers get one or five rifles
    If you want one caliber and one only in Blaser and have decided which one by all means go for it as it's good kit
    I had 5 calibers 5 barrels multiple scopes and mounts and it was just too hard.

    Mind you bought smart sold smarter so it didn't hurt like it should have

    Iv only got one cal, and scope and red dot and I would recommend it to any one
    It great having close range and long with the one set up

    All of you that moan its to heavy need to really harden up
    One less pie a day would save just as much weight

    On try one of your fathers or grandfathers gun,that will show you what weight is

    Well I did read that the r93 has a appx weight of 3.2kg bare. So thinking a new tikka t3x is 3.1kg and a R.E.M. Mag finnlight is still 3.2kg I can't see it being any heavier than most others?

    I suppose the saddle brings weight up? But I've the R8 and it's a great rifle.
    Wanting to buy a second barrel soon in 7x64.

    I've just brought a R93 in 6.5x55, amazing rifle. 223 barrel has been ordered also. My sako has been chucked in the corner now the blaser has become my main hunting rifle, and it's lighter and in my opinion, safer. Not trying to upset anyone, just my 2 cents worth.
