by Scott Crawford - August 10, 2021
- This is the Browning Gold Medallion BLR!
- Available from: 2021
- Cartridges: .243 Win, 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Win, .270 Win, .30-06 SPFLD, .300 Win Mag
- Notes: Lever actions have a long history of beauty and embellishment. This is right at the top of the BLR list when it comes to elegance. It's aircraft grade aluminum receiver with a blued finish and high-relief engraving with gold enhancement is a sight to behold. The grade IV/V walnut stock and forearm are extraordinary and gloss finished to perfection. Rosewood fore-end and pistol grip caps with brass spacers and a high-quality recoil pad complete this bold package.
Top quality, adjustable iron sights are included, but the gloss-finished aluminum alloy receiver is drilled and tapped for scope mounts. The steel barrel has a handsome gloss finish and a precision crowned muzzle to protect the rifling.
A feature unique to the BLR is the folding hammer that provides an extra margin of safety when placed in the half-cock position. Hammer has four positions: Full cock, half-cock, folded and the dropped (fired) position.
Unlike most lever-action rifles, the BLR uses a detachable box magazine rather than a tubular magazine. The box magazine allows the BLR to be offered in a wide variety of modern calibers that use pointed bullets. The stout multi-lug locking bolt design improves accuracy. A rack and pinion lever-action is glass smooth and the trigger travels with the lever to minimize the chance of finger pinch.
