    Browning blr-81 Lever action

    G'day.

    I am trying to find a BLR. I am looking for a blr-81 with the flush magazine and a steel receiver.
    Ideally 223 but 243,308 etc would be ok, (Do not want long action), and any condition considered. There are lots of alloy receiver jobs around, but not many steel.

    Anyway if anyone has one they are thinking of selling, I am keen to hear from you.

    Thanks

    If you cannot find the 81, my long action 30/06 takedown (flat flush mag) will be back on the market I think.......

    See what else pops up and I can flick the link to my earlier listing just before Christmas. I was going to hang onto it a bit longer, but with all this crap going on I am now considering motorbikes instead....

    Thanks anyway but I don't want a long action. I have had a 308 before and shouldn't have sold it years ago. After they took my BARs in the buy back in oz,
    I bought a 270 BLR but did't like it.

    But you might be onto something with the motorbike idea.

    "and shouldn't have sold it years ago" I bet there's a few more than one or two of us on here that have said that about a rifle!

    The reviews on them are really good. I'm seriously thinking about getting one. A bush and open country gun in one package!

    There are a couple of new ones on trademe, but I don't want an alloy receiver. If you have a worn out one I might be keen as I was
    going to re barrel any way. As long as the action is still good, I'm am not too bothered about the barrel
