The Tactical 2 is the most advanced version of the precision rifle developed by Blaser. Each design element was driven by the requirement to create the best shooting platform possible.

Exceptional accuracy was one of the key principles during development, with effective engagement ranges of 1500 meters or more, depending on caliber and ammunition. Advanced engineering and uncompromising quality are evident in every facet of design. The Tactical 2 is a bolt-action rifle featuring Blaser’s revolutionary straight-pull action. When the bolt is closed, the 360-degree radial collet expands into the locking groove in the barrel – the bolt head is auto-centering and self-headspacing. The straight pull action features no rotating parts and assures rapid reloading with minimum movement. The rifle can easily be converted for left- or right-hand shooters. The design allows for the exchange of calibers by replacing the barrel and bolt head, in under a minute, without special tools and no change in accuracy. The Tactical 2 is offered in .223 Remington, .308 WIN, .300 WIN MAG and .338 LAPUA.

Barrels are cold hammer-forged, fluted and plasma-nitrided to provide maximum resistance against corrosion and abrasion. An M1913 Picatinny rail is fixed to the barrel, ensuring full compatibility with a wide range of optical sighting systems. The muzzle end is threaded for an optional muzzle brake. The receiver is machined from aircraft-grade billet aluminum alloy and is the interface for the barrel, bolt assembly, trigger assembly and magazine. A recoil lug of hardened steel is integrated into the receiver. The entire unit is fixed to the stock, eliminating temperature-induced distortion.

The outer surface is hard anodized. The ergonomically correct stock is injection molded out of fiber-reinforced polymers and is absolutely stable, even under extreme temperatures.
