The following is a press release from Blaser
Only through the restless pursuit of perfection is it possible to create a perfectly balanced over and under shotgun with the lowest profile receiver on the market. The exceptionally low center of gravity makes the new Blaser F16 extraordinarily pointable and dynamic. Innovative development processes were used in the monocoque construction providing the ability to give the borders of the receiver a softened appearance much like a round body game gun and further benefits the shooter with a seamless transition between barrel and receiver. You will immediately feel the difference when handling the shotgun. A prerequisite to becoming a better shot!

Aside from the intuitive pointability a newly developed tapered rib supports better peripheral vision and results in faster target acquisition. The Triplex bore design and the proven ejection ball system (EBS) borrowed from the championship winning F3 allows the shooter to focus on what is really important: Hitting the next target.
The mechanical trigger mechanism of the F16 is the direct interface between shooter and shotgun. With a crisp trigger pull of 3 pounds,10 ounces, there is no delay between thought impulse and action. The Inertia Block System (IBS) adds to shooter safety and comfort by preventing the ability for the shotgun to fan fire or double.

Performance and reliability can only be attributed to the quality of materials used, individual craftsmanship and the relentless pursuit of technological perfection Blaser is so well known for.
From the clays field to your favorite hunting area, the F16 has become the new Gold Standard for others to measure against. The MSRP for the F16 game shotgun begins at $3,795 and the F16 sporting model begins at $4,195.
