German made Blaser handgun?
Please correct me if I am wrong but did not Blaser make a specialty handgun for a very short time about a decade or more ago? I seem to recall that there was some write up but then it disappeared.

Yes, they did. It was based on their R93 bolt action rifle action. I don't know if it actually made it into production-barrels were to be interchangeable.

Yes; the Blaser R93 HHS (Handgun Hunting System)

From my understanding, the feds weren't too happy with it, so it was dropped. Too bad, it was a neat system, though pricey.

Pretty interesting. Here is an article I found written by a familiar face on here. If Mark sees this, maybe he can add some more to the history.

Yes they did indeed. Mine has three barrels-243, 308, 300 win mag. I use the 308 almost exclusively. Taken whitetail at over 400, and the Javelina pictured at 200. Love this pistol, shoots very accurately with any loads it's given and seems to point and fire with very little effort. GREAT handgun!

Bigsheep,

What is the length of your 308 barrel?

Sorry for the late reply -- I just returned from Pakistan. I remember the Blaser handgun well -- took it to Zambia & Zimbabwe and shot several head of game with it. The gun was accurate and had a great trigger. Like a fool -- I returned the gun. Thought I'd pick one up at a later date. Another one of my foolish decisions!

I hate to admit this, but if it came with a RH bolt, I would really want one.

Ernie, according to blue book of gun values it was available in RH or LH straight pull bolt. Better start counting your pennies. laugh

Well, finding one in a chambering I would use is probably a completely different story.

just like the rifles, you can get left or right bolt head configurations and can swap between the two. Also, I believe the barrels are set up exactly the same as their R93 rifle barrels, so you'd have a wide variety of calipers and be able to cut them down and brake/thread them.

Ernie, it might be inevitable, if you can find one available. I'll keep an eye out for you Big Grin

Between Mike, you, and others on this forum that have helped me spend my money, I just thought I would return the favor. laugh
