Default Blr?

Anyone here have any experience with a Browning BLR? Guy here at work has an older one in .243 that he's wanting to let go for $600. It'll need a new scope and rings, and the stock shows some use, but other than that it's a good looking gun.

Thoughts?

Never owned one, but I have shot a few different ones. I've never been a lever action fan because I never cared for the high mounted scopes, but the guys I know that have them seem to like them. I just recall they seem heavy.

That sounds like a good price and you can always offer less.

Looks like it's not Belgium based on the date. Looks to be made in Japan. Going to check it out tonight and see if we can work a deal.
