    The price is a little to much for me so if I need to I'll just rebarrel my BLR in .358

    Hahahaha @kiwijames Says the Blaser owner

    Yes I have one in 308 & Yes it's a Browning. Mine's getting a timber make over at TJ's ( the finish was a bit milky ) can't wait to get it back as I really like it.

    Good points - Nice timber & shape, points like a shotie, Solid self enclosed "BAR" action ( which is spring loaded ), great safety, Comes with a nice flutted barrel, good weight & well balanced & mine is very accurate ( with handloads )

    Bad bits - Not probably the best "in the scrub gun" as has a few moving parts ie - The double front spring action is quite complicated and the trigger is the normal Browning poo ( but I'm a good enough marksman so it's not an issue )

    LOL. I thought you cashed up that fugly thing? That's why I bagged it
    Is it not noisy as hell with the spring loading (I'm too lazy to push a bolt 70mm forward) part?

    A friend of of mine has one in 9.3x62 for wild boar shooting in France. He can shoot and reload faster with it than with his blaser.
