Re: Any love for the Browning BLR?

The early BLR magazines , pre 81 models , are hard to come by (hence expensive if you do ). I don't think that is a problem with later ones.IMO the long actions one are bulky defeating the purpose. Love mine in .308 but it does kind of puts a crimp in needs department for another rifle.

Re: Browning B92 barrel thread size vs original Winchester 92

The outfits mentioned for the liner would be than likely be able to handle export and a good smith could install it without any outward appearance change of the rifle once done.

Re: Browning B92 barrel thread size vs original Winchester 92

I think the first problem would be going through customs, if so you may want to see if someone like Green mountain Barrels can export one to him. Hopefully someone will come along with a better idea of customs rules.
