C.G. Haenel redesigned its precision rifle family RS8. In 2016 the RS9 was introduced to the German army as sniper rifle G29. Now there are modifications at the whole rifle family inspired by the successful German military model: The Ilaflon-coating in the colouring RAL 8000 of the G29 was taken up for the RS8 models. The adjustment of the buttstock without tools will be identical with all models of the Haenel RS8 and therefore makes the changing between the variants easier. Furthermore the pistol grip of the rifle was improved: It fits to the interface M4 and thereby opens opportunities of an individual adjustment to the shooter.
