Re: Why do people hate Browning Firearms so much

Some folks may take exception to Brownings advertising that claims to be
"the best there is". All kidding aside I have 2 Browning rifles and love them both.
One is a BLR lever gun in 270 that I've taken a truck load of whitetails with also my wife took an antelope at 300 yds. The other is an XBolt in 300WinMag that shoots
3/4 inch with factory ammo took a nice bull elk with this year.

I've shot several deer this year over 500
Yards with a 270wsm using berger bullets
And a huskemaw set up I've done the same
With black bears with a 325wsm both with
X bolts

Made in Japan

Made in Japan is what people hate...........if John Browning were alive today I don't think it would be in Japan.

Really like if Browning would go back to Belgium Made!

the Browning FN Safari is one of my most prized and used rifles.

Even have a few Japan Browning rifles in the safe!

No hate from me, the Belgium guns were so nice they just lost all respect when
they moved production.

"Why do people hate Browning Firearms so much "

Their guns are as good as any and better than most, on average anyway. Some people don't like much of anything, a LOT of people simply pile-on, perhaps in an effort to sound "knowledgable"? And it's only a few silly enough to "hate" them and make a lot of noise so they sound more numerous than they are! Fergit 'em and enjoy your nice rifle.

Rems are by far the most popular bolt rifles ever produced and I really like 'em. The ease of modifying them attracts a lot of gimmicky owners the after markerters cater to but that doesn't mean they or others are in anyway 'better' factory rifles than Browning.

All makers throat their chambers longer than the magazine. That's done to keep foolish reloaders from blowing themselves up and the survivors sueing.

Re: Why do people hate Browning Firearms so much

My appologies for being so harsh. But people were hurt trying to customize abolt actions because of the cheap pot metal. They are easy to crack and can cause severe catastrophic failure. I have not worked with them in over ten years and they may have a better product now. They have a great design but very poor metal that does not do well when customizing.
