When Blaser saw the Javelin bipod earlier this year they really understood the potential of this new concept; a lightweight bipod system that could be integrated into their stock and attached when needed. This echoed their philosophy of leading through innovation and they understood our passion for creating high quality, game changing products.
Blaser asked if Spartan could create an integrated version for their R8 bolt action rifle. We said yes yes yes and set about designing a solution.
It's been a very busy and exciting summer preparing the design, manufacturing and the launch of this prestigious new product.
We wanted to create a new bipod exclusively for Blaser which was as unique as the R8. The Blaser Bipod design has all the details of our Javelin but includes many new features.
The shape reflects the curved R8 stock so there are no edges or angles to be seen. The head section which is made from 12 components is smooth and rounded with a wider stance of 55 degrees. Every metal part of the Blaser bipod is machined from solid billet using 5 axis cnc machines; there are no castings or pressed metal parts.
The adapter is housed in the fore end of the R8 Professional Success stock. Only the sling stud protrudes to maintain the beautiful lines of the stock. Replacement for existing owners is a quick and simple procedure by removing 2 screws in the stock and swapping the fore end.
This is currently only for the Success, but we're working on a solution for the Professional too. The kit is either a retrofit for existing owners or can be specified as part of your build from Blaser.
We're very proud to have been chosen to provide bipods for one of the world's best rifle manufacturers. We can all be proud that the Blaser bipod was designed, manufactured and built in Britain. You can read about the new Blaser Carbon Bipod on their website
