Haenel CR-series semi-automatic rifles now also available in 6.5 Creedmoor & .300 Blackout

A few years after its market launch, the CR semi-automatic rifle from C.G. Haenel is widely used by law enforcement units and sport shooters. An indirect gas-operated firearm, Haenel combines it with cold hammer forged barrels produced in-house. The civilian offshoots of the Haenel CR family are now being extended by two additional calibers: in addition to the CR300 in .300 AAC Blackout, a CR 6.5 version in the popular 6.5 Creedmoor caliber is being launched. Thus, with the already existing .223 Remington and .308 Winchester versions, the German semi-automatic rifle is now available in four calibers.

New: Haenel CR in .300 Blackout medium caliber

The .300 AAC Blackout is a sought-after medium caliber, which is also particularly suitable for suppressed firing. It offers the possibility to shoot the heavier bullet of a 7.62 mm cartridge from a compact weapon system. The Haenel CR in caliber .300 AAC Blackout will be available from September 2020 for 2927 euro (all prices in this article may vary in your country due to VAT and import duties

New: Haenel CR in 6.5 Creedmoor for long-range shooting

The 6.5 Creedmoor, on the other hand, is a fast medium caliber with an elongated trajectory, which has its justification both for hunting and sport shooting and is probably one of the most successful new developments of the recent past. It's used for accurate long-range shots. It's being introduced for both the CR semi-automatic rifle and the RS8 precision bolt-action rifle. From September 2020, the Haenel RS8 will be available in 6.5 Creedmoor for 6402 euro, the Haenel CR semi-automatic rifle for 3303 euros.
