Blaser Model BL821 Luxus Grade .243 Win. $7,250

Falling Block Single Shot

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

duplex reticle on ERA Recknagel Classic steel quick-turn-off mounts fitted

discreetly to the rib. Coin-finished action engraved with oakleaf-bordered
