Can Blaser AR8 be just as convincing as its role model, the hunting rifle Blaser R8? I tested it for you.
Specifications of Blaser AR8
Blaser AR8 made by Diana features the NTEC gas piston technology. This technology has the advantage that it is easier to cock since you’re not compressing a spring. In addition, the recoil is reduced compared to spring-piston rifles. This doesn’t make much difference with the 7.5 joule model, but if you get the Blaser with 32 joules, this issue quickly becomes interesting.
Of course, you need a gun permit to buy the more powerful model. So, you’re limited to the 7.5 joule model which I tested here.
Blaser AR8 has a synthetic stock. The butt plate as well as the cheek piece are rubberized.
The T06 trigger
Like most of the top air rifles in the Diana Performance Line, Blaser’s AR8 features the T06 trigger. The first stage travel, trigger pull, and trigger weight are adjustable. The trigger weight is adjustable from 14.1 to 17.6 oz (400 to 500 g)
The open sights are also special. They are contrast sights. You can see exactly what this looks like in the video below. I like it.
I hope you liked my post.
