Blaser and Carl Zeiss Optics Announce Illumination Control Terminology
San Antonio, Texas - Launched by two innovation leaders Carl Zeiss and Blaser, Illumination Control (iC) represents a technology connecting the control of the reticle illumination to the operation of the rifle. A sensor in the eyepiece recognizes the position of the cocking slide and automatically regulates the on/off function of the Varipoint illuminated reticle.

The advantages of the iC system are crystal clear: even when being under great pressure, forgetting to switch on the illuminated dot cannot happen. A small magnetic encoder in the cocking slide of the R93 is connected to a sensor on the underside of the Varipoint ocular thus activating the illuminated reticle. Right hand shooters will appreciate the ergonomic design of the R93 iC cocking lever because there is no need to remove your forward hand to activate your illuminated reticle. This innovative feature also benefits left hand shooters because they do not need to release the pistol grip to activate the illuminate reticle. Shooter and rifle are connected as one unit.

"Every R93 in the global market place can be retrofitted to accept the iC system", says Norbert Haussmann, Blaser CEO. "The Blaser dealer will simply send the bolt assembly to the Blaser factory where the iC cocking slide can be fitted" continues Mr. Haussmann. Complete details on the iC system can be found at
