Why don't you hear much about Browning on the forums?

I have heard that the browning stainless a-bolts are difficult to rebarrel due to the soft stainless used - apparently the threads in the reciever are very easy to damage, so many gunsmiths won't rebarrel them for fear of messing up someones rifle.

Not sure how much truth there is in this

I've also heard Brownings are very difficult to re-barrel, which really limits the appeal to precision shooters who may go through a barrel a year.

Don't know if that's true. Maybe a rifle-builder will chip in here with info on that?

Otherwise the Browning seems to be a fine looking rifle that tends to shoot well in factory form.

Thanks, Guy

Not known for good accuracy or resale plus my Smith who specializes in accuracy would not accept one into his shop. If you already have one and it shoots good don't give it a second thought..
The Truth Is Not Always Good For Business!!
