Default Browning BAR lightweight stalker

I am looking at buying a new browning BAR Lightweight Stalker in the synthetic. I know the guns been around awhile and browning has a good quality reputation. I am just wondering if anybody who owns one or knows anybody who does could tell me what they think of them. I do hunt in some pretty cold weather situations in WI so I wonder if there receiver can hold up to it. I don't plan on putting a scope on it. I do some sitting some stalking. When sitting, my shot yardage is usually within 125 yards and I get into some thick stuff when stalking so I thought this would be a good all around set up. Im getting it in a 308. Any opinions would be appreciated.

The BAR's are decent. My buddy has one that I've shot. The trigger was not great, but it shot pretty well...minute of deer. Be careful of the lube / over lube in very cold weather. I'd still mount a low power (or fixed power) scope on it though. Good luck.

I have the BAR Lightweight Stalker in .308 and I love it. Mine has the wood stock and is still very easy to carry and the recoil is very minimal. In fact, my 12 year old son would rather shoot it than his .243 . I agree that the trigger isn't the best in the world so I put a trigger shoe on it and that made all the difference in the world. Hope this helps!!!!!

I have one in .270. Nice rifle, accurate, etc. I mounted a Leupold 2.5*8 on it. In the field I have never taken it off 2.5. I have had it a few years and have taken a few deer with it. No complaints here.
