About Blaser in New Zealand

Welcome to the home of Blaser in New Zealand and the South Pacific.

Stäger Sport is the appointed exclusive agent for Blaser in our region. Hugh Bradley, Gunmaker, and past Managing Director, first laid eyes on a Blaser rifle while in Switzerland in the late 1980's with his Wife, Ruth, who hails from Murren Switzerland.

Hugh knew immediately that he had come across something unique and special, and soon after introduced them to our market.

Blaser firearms are unique and ground breaking. For some they are so revolutionary they may not understand them. For others they will be the rifle with the features they have always wanted. For us, they are the pinnacle.

Stäger Sport is now directed by Hugh and Ruth's Nephew, Joel, and continues to support and drive Blaser forward. We are a very busy company, we do our level best to provide prompt service, always operate professionally and strive to provide high quality experiences.
