Blaser F16 Pro Series Shotgun Now Shipping

San Antonio, Texas – Blaser is pleased to announce its new F16 Pro Series over-and-under competition shotgun is now shipping. Designed by Blaser Pro Staff and World Champion shooter Cory Kruse, and available in right-handed and left-handed models, the 12-gauge F16 Pro Series is a tricked-out version of the standard F16 Sporting shotgun and ready for competition right out of the box.

This new model was designed with the sole intention of reducing recoil and muzzle jump for easier transition to the second shot. New features include an adjusted pitch angle which allows for a more comfortable flush fit mount on the shoulder while further dispersing felt recoil. Added weight in the stock and barrel deliver perfect balance while aiding in recoil reduction in conjunction with the new Kick-EEZ® butt pad.

The F16 Pro Series shotgun 32” barrel comes with RHINO’s patented 13-port “pigeon porting” system and RHINO G1 series chokes with GP30 nonstick coating, exactly like those used by Cory Kruse in competition. These new features, combined with the improved pitch angle, added weight and Kick-EEZ butt pad, significantly reduce muzzle jump and felt recoil, even with heaviest target loads.

“We worked closely with Cory to add key features, that have aided him as a national and world-champion shooter, into a more moderately priced competition shotgun that is truly tournament ready out of the box,” said Jason Evans, CEO, Blaser Group. “The reduced recoil and balance of the F16 Pro Series make it a dream to shoot.”

“The teamwork between Blaser and Rhino, and their trust in my recommendation to produce this special shotgun, has been fantastic. It’s rewarding to see our vision finally come to fruition,” said Kruse. “This F16 Pro Series shotgun will help any competitor reach a higher potential of success, while making clay shooting more fun.”
