Short Action. Long Action. Ready for Any Action.
As a rule, lever-action aficionados have always had to trade away power and accuracy for quick handling and easy carrying. With the Browning BLR those compromises are a thing of the past. The design of the BLR is as modern as tomorrow with an aircraft-grade alloy receiver, glass-smooth rack and pinion system and multi-lug rotating bolt that handles many of the most popular magnum cartridges.
You are never limited to flat nose bullets.
Most lever-action rifles suffer from accuracy problems caused by the limitations of the flat-nosed ammunition for which they are chambered. Not the Browning BLR. The BLR utilizes a reliable box magazine that protects bullet tips and allows it to fire powerful game-dropping magnum cartridges. An extremely smooth rack and pinion-driven bolt locks tight to the barrel and gives the BLR the kind of superior accuracy that rivals many bolt-actions.
Gloss walnut, checkered grip, Schnabel forearm, polished blued barrel & aluminum receiver, detachable magazine, iron sights, tapped for standard scope, lever-action.
Timeless beauty that’s more than skin deep. The gloss finish on the Walnut pistol grip stock contrasts beautifully with the deeply polished blue finish on the receiver and the barrel. The detachable box magazine allows it to be chambered for modern hunting calibers and it's tapped for scope mounts to take full advantage of its range and accuracy. This is what a serious lever-action rifle should be, and what every other lever-action wishes it was.
The barrel’s standard sights include a Low-Profile adjustable square notch rear sight and a high-visibility front blade with gold bead fitted on a raised ramp-style base. The pistol grip BLR stock is contoured for maximum comfort and the flared Schnabel fore-end tip adds a classic touch of style. The BLR’s stock has a deep, glossy finish that brings out every nuance of the wood’s warm color and grain. The well-formed recoil pad helps reduce felt recoil and flinching.
