    WTS- Browning Shorttrac 308

    Right'o punters, I posted this up a few months back and then put it back in the safe. Now I need to free up some space for a new toy that's on it's way and why I love this rifle I haven't shot it stuff all in the pass two or three years and it's basically just been sitting in the safe for the last few years. From memory I brought it in 2008, had it threaded (1/2"UNF ) & suppressed by Dan Hardy ( gas port was opened up ) and it shots mint, have regularly shot rapid 5 shot 1moa groups. Rifle has fired around 300-400 rounds

    Heres a vid from few years back- 500 yard Gong, 8 from 8 - YouTube
