Re: Why do people hate Browning Firearms so much
I have a Micro Medallion in .284 Win.
First of all, the mag is too short to allow the bullet to be seated anywhere near the lands.
Second, the machine finish in the barrel was atrocious. It fouled so bad, so fast, that I nearly sold it. It would pile up the copper so bad that ripped patches and hours of pushing blueberries were the norm. I paid to have it "lapped" only to find out later that it pretty much just got a scrubbing with JB's bore paste. Eventually it seemed to smooth out and would hold at 1 to 1.25" groups at 100. My dad loved it, and never really shoots, so I gave it to him.
I did kill my best black bear to date with it, and my son, his first antelope.
I like the 60° bolt throw, and the trigger seems pretty good. Just scared of buying another bad barrel.....
