The function and practical value of a firearm is in no way influenced by its appearance, whether engraved and made with rare high-grade wood or produced in a plain standard version. Regardless, nearly every hunter who buys a Blaser rifle invests money in engraving and precious wood. Ultimately the firearm reflects the hunter’s personality, depicts his way of hunting and embodies his passion. Over the course of time, hunting and gun making has always had a strong culture. Hunters recognize that the firearm is much more than a tool.
