Assuming I had a time machine that could only fit one sniper rifle to take back 10 years to the past during my service as a Navy SEAL sniper then the rifle I would choose would be…. wait for it!
The Blaser R8 Ultimate Silence.
Why Go With Blaser and not HK?
I struggled with choosing between Blaser and the HK MR762A1 because I love what HK builds. (After all, their rifle killed Osama bin Laden, and what’s not to like about that!?) However, out-of-the-box, the Blaser sniper rifle is built as a lightweight hunting machine.
On the other hand, HK has gone a little tactical-retard these days with miles of heavy rail and metal that is not conducive to hunting men. Their weapons are just too heavy. And if you’ve seen the movie Tropic Thunder you know that never — I mean never — go full retard.
