I just picked up a late-80`s/early 90`s A-Bolt in 30/06. Walnut stock, some kind of wood forend cap in wood, gold trigger and floor plate with a built in box. Very unique. Anything I should know about these rifles as in quirks, quality, etc before I fire it? I know nothing about Brownings. Thank you.
Great rifles for PA. I know an outfitter in Kodiak who absolutely hates them. He's never had one make it through a full week in the rain there. He says the triggers and safeties are prone to rusting and becoming inoperable. That's a SE Alaska issue though and you'll love the rifle in PA.

Great guns. I have a .222 stainless stalker and a .260 rem wood and blued. The .222 is the most accurate gun I've ever owned and has accounted for piles of whitetail. The .260 was a grice special run and it is still NIB.

I worked in a sporting goods store and sold Browning rifles back in the late 80's. they are a nice rifle but are a little light for my taste. ive also shot them and found that recoil can be a little hard if shooting heavy bullets. they are for the most part accurate shooting rifles. good luck.
I have a composite stalker in 7mm mag that I bought in '89/'90. Very accurate and has never failed in PA or out west. I would say the only drawback in the magnums is the 26" barrel as it gets banged around during bear drives. I always thought it was a fairly light gun, that is until I got my hands on a Tikka T3 in 7mm mag. I would suggest purchasing a 2nd magazine just in case.
