ACSR8U is suitable for Blaser’s R8 Ultimate and Standard models with wooden stocks. Left-handed and right-handed versions all makes and models. It is a drop in upgrade chassis, this means that you would require the following parts to complete the rifle: barrel, bolt with bolt head, receiver and magazine (both magazine versions fit the ACSR8U)
The chassis of ACSR8U is machined out of 7075 T6 aluminium billet and has a black hard coat anodized finish and features QD sling swivels sockets on both sides above the pistol grip. The fittings (grip, central part cover, cheek piece, buttstock side panels) are optionally made of walnut wood, polymer (synthetic) or composites (carbon).
Either of the two available foreends is a separate piece attached to the chassis. Handguard Lite was made with maximum functionality and weight optimisation and features M-LOK™ interface on all 8 sides while Handguard M on 6 sides as well as ARCA rail on the 6 o’clock. Both foreends feature QD sling swivel sockets at the very front, at 3 and 9 o’clock.
Both AKILA buttstocks are machined out of 7075 T651 aluminium billets and have a black hard coat anodized finish and features QD sling swivels sockets on both sides. Both buttstocks offer a possibility to adjust the cheek piece height and side, the length of pull, recoil pad height. Besides that Buttstock M features a built-in quick deployable and fine adjustable monopod and buttstock Lite has one MLOK™ slot to mount a monopod or a custom bag rider. The buttstock mounting point of the AKILA chassis is compatible with AR-15 receiver extensions, which will allow installing AR butt stocks. The buttstock folding can be user configured and folds to left or right sides of the chassis.
