Blaser --- Model BL821, Luxus Grade, Falling Block Single Shot Rifle --- .243 Winchester
23 1/2" barrel fitted inside an exterior tapered octagon outer "barrel" with ramp front sight, sling swivel, and integral matted quarter rib with standing express sight. Fully figured, oil-finished Turkish walnut stock with schnabel forend-tipped splinter forend, black-capped pistol grip, point-pattern skip-line checkering, fluted Bavarian cheekpiece, hinged trap for four cartridges, and maker's original black composition buttplate. Stainless steel, falling-block action cocks on the last half-inch of closing the underlever, would normally be carried safely in the field, loaded, but with the underlever just a half-inch short of being cocked, and may then be safely de-cocked with the press of a button on the top tang. An almost-redundant cross-pin safety, mounted to the loading lever behind the trigger, at the shooter's option, locks out the lever from closing fully and cocking the rifle. With Swarovski Habicht 2.2-9x42mm Nova rail-mount scope with 30mm tube and fine 4A duplex reticle on ERA Recknagel Classic steel quick-turn-off mounts fitted discreetly to the rib. Coin-finished action engraved with oakleaf-bordered game scenes of baying elk over a fallen comrade on left, a buck and doe on right, another pair on the grip cap, and oakleaves covering the cartridge trap. Pull: 14 1/4" from adjustable trigger. Weight: 8lbs, 4oz scoped; 6lbs, 15oz without. Built 1982 - 1990. Little used and with excellent bore.
