    Browning 1885 45-70 in like new condidtion. Gun has adjustable trigger, octagon barrel, swivel studs, recoil pad, iron sights, exposed hammer and beautiful wood. The scope that is currently mounted on the gun is a 3-9x compact leupold that cost over $320.00 with leupold mounts. This gun is extremely accurate. I killed 5 deer with this gun and the last kill was just under 200 yards. This gun qualifies as a "primitive weapon" for the Louisiana black powder season. I also have over 50+ rounds of custom 350 grain ammo that I will include with the gun for free on a face to face delivery for cash anywhere between Dallas and Shreveport-I cannot ship the ammo. Payment by USPS money order only or cash FTF.

    Gun only $1,150.00 shipped
    Gun and Scope $1,300.00 shipped

    Thanks, I priced it well under all the similar guns on gunbroker to offer a forum member a good deal, but no sale yet. I also have dies, brass and over 300 bullets that I could also offer with the rifle.

    The last time I shot mine off the bench at 100 yards all three shots were touching using my pet 350 grain Hornady Load. The only reason I purchased the gun was to be able to use it during the Louisiana "black powder" season. LA allows hunters to used exposed hammer old cartridge guns during black powder season. We are moving to Texas and Texas does not allow such weapons during black powder season, so I am selling this gun to buy a long range hunting gun.

    That's a nice rifle. I had one once, I should never have traded it. Wish I had the cash for this one.

    Is this rifle the BPCR with a Top Tang, or the Sporter without?

    Thanks, Terry Harper

    No top tang sight and no brutal metal butt plate. This one has a very nice recoil pad, which is why I purchased this model.
