Blaser has been one of the leading manufacturers of hunting rifles and shotguns in Europe for 60 years and is delighted to donate the latest addition to its range, the F16 shotgun, in either the gents or ladies model, fully fitted and presented in a deluxe travel case. Passionate about perfection, the F16 marked the launch of the next generation of game shotguns for Blaser. This perfectly balanced over and under shotgun has the lowest profile receiver on the market, giving it an exceptionally low centre of gravity, and making it extraordinarily pointable and dynamic. The F16 action features the Inertial Block System (IBS) that enhances shooter safety and comfort by preventing the ability for the shotgun to fan fire or double. It has been extremely well received by the shooting press and has already won a series of awards including The Shooting Industry Awards Best Shotgun 2017. Your shotgun can be left or right handed and custom fitted in Guildford, Scotland or Northern Ireland.

Donated by Blaser.
