Re: Blaser R93 rifle

Yes, I too have furthered the question with some Australian gunsmiths, including some from our fine defence force ( the boys that service and maintain our Tac 2's.)
Mention Blaser barrel steel, and the proposed works, and they run a mile.
However, there is a solution of kinds.
If your prepared to deal with the Australian importer, ( many are not ) and pay the $800 surcharge, then wait six months for a reply from Blaser, before they accept your order.
Blaser will build just about anything you want, it's really just a dollars game.
Thomas Haugland has a huge following in this country, and is an alround good bloke.
Hitting the fly three times in one detail at my rifle club, is referred to as a Hauland. LOL, but its usually only the Blasers that can do it in hunter class.

Re: Blaser R93 rifle

Here is my blazer r93 LR rifle...
.300win mag 65(63cm) match flutted barrel 1-11"twist with a professional stock and harris bipod. The scope is a Schmidt&bender 5-25x56 PMII mounted with ERA Recknagel rings on a picatinny rail and ADI inclinometer. The muzzle brake is original from blaser.
I will put a match trigger from Bix'n Andy and I am planing to change the bipod for something better, because mine is the standard BR 6"-9"

Re: Blaser R93 rifle

Very handsome rifle ...on my professional [ since it is a synthetic stock ] I added a big palm swell and then to add length had a Hogue recoil / butt pad installed. You have assembled a wonderful combination and the bipod up grade is smart...I actually like the highest bipods or African style shooting sticks for hunting in the sage brush and the long grass prairie.

Re: Blaser R93 rifle

Yes...it is harder to add to a wood stock...can be done but... with a synthetic stock like the R93 Pro, I just put in a couple small screws to anchor a glob of auto body bondo shaped to fill my large hand and draw my trigger finger back to where it did not extend so far into the trigger guard. After it was dried ...I painted the area and the forend grip area with a krinkle finish paint[ my Professional model is an early one before the non-slip inserts came along ]...I am about 1/2 inch from a camo paint job like Thomas Haugland did to his R93.

I would be very interested to hear how your gunsmith goes with the cutting and re-clambering of your old Blaser barrel.
When I have swapped barrels on my rifles, and given them a knock, they positively RING. There steel is harder than the hobs of hell. ( Australian saying ).
I suppose anything can be cut with the right tooling, or an EMD machine ? But getting an acceptable finish would be the trick.
It's called stubbing. This guy does it on TC barrels all the time. You might talk him into doing a Blaser. Custom Built Rifles and Hunting Handguns
