Bockdrilling BD 14
New lockup, new barrel adjustment, new elegance. Blaser redefines the concept of a “Bockdrilling”.
The innovative design of the thermostable barrels makes the BD 14 a state-of-the-art masterpiece: a skillful combination of tradition and technology. The “Bockdrilling” is, put simply, an O/U Rifle-shotgun combination with a smaller caliber rifle-barrel that blends in harmonically on the side. The barrel arrangement has been perfected by Blaser allowing for an extremely slender receiver and making the BD 14 exceptionally huntable.
The brand new Vertical Block Lockup is an absolute stunner which has been filed for patent. It combines an extremely compact and solid block lockup in a closed system within the monoblock with the comfortable handling of a classic break action rifle.
The double lock permits, if needed, a rapid second shot, the front trigger always releasing the large rifle-caliber. The blind palable barrel selector actives the shotgun barrel when in position “top” and activates the smaller rifle caliber in position “bottom”.
The Blaser precision triggers with a trigger pull of 650 grams (1lb 7 oz) and the excellent, crisp characteristics are the essential prerequisite for accurate shooting.
With the ergonomically perfected stock and the moderate palmswell at the pistol grip the BD 14 can be smoothly mounted and aimed. Especially comfortable is the fact that hunters with smaller hands can reach both triggers without any difficulties.
The barrel for the large caliber is free floating and only held by a front hanger. The contact surfaces between barrel and hanger are hard chrome plated and hence well protected against corrosion. The small caliber barrel is positioned in a front hanger and a separate hanger below the forearm where also the height adjustment is performed. The lateral adjustment is realized via front hanger. This method of barrel regulation is especially reliable and the source of highest possible consistency.
With a total weight starting at app. 3.3 kg (7 lb 4.4 oz) the new Blaser Bockdrilling lives up to the expected versatility and is first choice for stalking.
