Default Lever action 30-06

Have any of you ever heard of a browning blr lever action 30-06? Someone has one for sale for about 470 dollars and I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on them.

Just making sure that I don't buy something and then hear that they always jam up or are not accurate or something flawed with the design.

The rifle is like 95% condition. Very good.

I have friend who purchased one and, it has the worst trigger I have ever felt. We could never find anyone who would do a trigger job on it. Make sure you try the triggers on as many of these rifles as possible, and pick the one with the best trigger. Good luck.

I've had two Browning BLR 81's and can testify to you that they are about as fine a &quot;walking around the woods&quot; gun as money can buy. I did find a gunsmith in California who could work on the trigger and he adjusted it for me and made it adequate. I gave one to my brother (a 7mm-08) and I sold mine (a .284 Win). I will forever regret the day I did... <img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>

Good Dogwork and Good Hunting

i like them alot. i had one in order but was a 7mm-08rem. the reason why i did not try for one in 30-06sprg was being the stock was to long for me and felt uncomfortable.
if you are looking for one. i would go with the 308win shorter action and the 308win is just as good as the 30-06sprg. a new one runs for $550.00 where i buy my guns.
as seatlesears said &quot;one of the finest alking around the woods guns &quot; they do feel good. if i was you pick it up. very good price.
