I saw Steve Scott on TV tonight shoot an elephant and a few other critters with a Blaser R-93. I've never seen one in person but have read stories that they have a lot of plastic in them and shouldn't be used for dangerous game. I know they are a very expensive gun but are they worth all the money?
Thanks,
Sam

SamC i have handled a few different Blaser 93's and I didnt see any plastic on them. If i had the money to buy a 9.3 x 62, it would definately be a Blaser 93 Attache. So in my opinion yes if you can afford it, they are worth the money.

No plastic in them, would be an individual choice about the dollar value. I don't think they are. If the same consumer in Europe had a choice between something like a custom Neiska bay action, etc. I doubt if they would too.

place in SLC called Heritage Arms that is a dealer, look at them every once in a while--when bored looking at their doubles. Can't say from experience, but see rumours about the bolt not stopping back on cycling and don't believe it. They come up and point well, just think they aren't competitive, but then in this price and purpose catagory buyer probably doesn't care.

Yes.  Anybody can post anything they want on the internet and there's nothing enforcing the truth.  You should take anything you hear on the internet with a healthy grain of salt unless it comes from a trusted source.  That applies to here as well.   
 
The Blaser R-93 is made of aluminum, steel, and wood (unless it's a synthetic stock model).  There may be a few small, noncritical parts made of plastic I'm not thinking of at the moment, but there are no major plastic parts on the rifle.
 
I think the Blaser is a clever design, with its unique straight pull, expanding collet locking bolt.  It also has a good trigger, and I've seen some that look really nice, stocked with stunningly beautiful wood.  Apart from its appearance and uniqueness, I wouldn't buy one personally and I don't think they are worth their asking price.

Are they more of a status symbol rather than a product of great engineering?

Looking at them on TV and in photos, I don't think they are a nice looking rifle they look blocky to me but like I said previously I've never seen one in person.

Looks are subjective.  Some of the most spectacular wood I've ever seen on factory rifles have been on the Blasers and high end Dakotas.  I agree that the Blaser is both a product of some out-of-the-box thinking and a status symbol.  They appear to be well made.  Action function is very smooth, and besides the collet style bolt lockup, the trigger design is also unique.  They appeal to the well healed shooter who has to have something different.  Other than appreciating their design concept, I have no interest in them because I don't think they are worth what they cost.

If a Blazer would reload the case after firing, before ejection, It would be well worth the money and a great value.    Big Grin
