Re: Browning BLR

Best action of all the lever actions. Pistol grip stocks are awkward for me, I like the regular stock. Loved the short action ones, .308,.358 etc...

Re: Browning BLR

I have a 1989 model in .358 Win. Very accurate, short and quick handling. Not to mention beautiful.

Alrighty then!

Re: Browning BLR

I have a Belgian BLR in 308 and a Japanese BLR Lightning in 243. Magazines are different.

Re: Browning BLR

I have two. A .308 and a .243. Both shoot great. I love the action and the detachable magazine. Killed my first deer with the 243. It was my fathers. He since gave it to me. I liked it so much I bought the 308 in 1979 when I was 14. I had to mow a lot of grass for that rifle along with the Redfield scope I topped it with. I will never part with that gun. Between my daughter and myself we killed many deer and now three bears with it. It is her favorite rifle to use.
