I paid a visit to the Blaser booth at SHOT Show specifically to check out the S2 and came away thoroughly impressed! That is a fine piece of hardware. Well, I was thoroughly impressed with the S2. The one and only guy in the booth, not so much. A complete jerk to the point of actually being rude. WTF?With just a bit of looking, you can find a Blaser S2 for just a third more. It doesn't look traditional, but it is accurate, ergonomically a joy, has the Blaser protective finish, shoots every time the trigger is pulled, and uses Blaser mounts for either a scope or red-dot sight. Did I mention you can get additional barrels that fit without needing a gunsmith?
Anyway, one time to the shoulder and I was getting hooked. The big white bead front sight just naturally found it's way into the cradle of the rear. This fine double mounts with natural ease and balances very nicely. Even though the rifle was chambered in .500 NE and I'm not exactly a bruiser at 5'8" and 160, it felt very comfortable and natural. I really wanted to shoot that gun
Even though the S2 may be a little unconventional as double rifles go, I would own one in a heartbeat! Hopefully it will be an option someday. Until then I guess I'll have to just fondle one once a year
