BLR

Post by Shakey Jake » Mon Sep 09, 2019 10:56 am

Going down to the LGD later in the day after clients to get my Marlin .44 bore scoped. I saw this for sale on their web site and may have to take a look at it while I'm there. .243

Oh man -been looking for one of these myself in .243.
Hope its in good condition and you do not hesitate!
Do you know what year model it is?
I am keeping an eye out for a pre '96 as they were all steel then.

Yep, you're right. BLR in .243 and it's a take down model to boot! The scope is a Leupold 2.5 X 8.

Early 80's I think. I'll look it up to make sure. They haven't made the pistol grip in a while I don't think. Correct me if I'm wrong. Not as old as I thought. 2001 BLR Lightning. Looks like a closet queen. Looks to be all steel to me. What parts weren't?

The receiver.
They were steel up to 1996 I believe.

This one is steel so maybe I'm not dating it correctly.
