Its straight-pull bolt action is designed to withstand pressures exceeding the Straight-pull bolt-action Action Mauser 98-type bolt-action-rifles significantly. The manual cocking system, Feed system 3-4 rounds internal box magazine locking the bolt when uncocked, offers aperture type iron sights, telescopic sight Sights the shooter to securely carry the weapon until cocking just before the shot. To avoid accidents with set triggers, Blaser offers the R93 only with a direct trigger. Blaser also constructed a new scope mount, the Saddle mount, in which the mount is held by two specially formed holes in the receiver. By changing magazine, barrel and bolt head, a multitude of calibers can be used in the same R93 chassis. After a shooting accident near Koblenz in 1994, the R93 was criticised not to withstand high pressures and the bolt to unlock with excessive pressure.[1] An investigation by the DEVA concluded that the handloaded ammunition used, however, greatly exceeded the maximum legal gas pressure.[citation needed ] The R93 was upgraded to the Blaser R8 with a detachable box magazine / trigger combination. Parts for the R93 do not fit the R8 series, however. In 2009, Blaser and Carl Zeiss AG began offering a scope that switches on a red dot when the R93/R8 are cocked ("Zeiss Illumination Control / iC").
