Our Assessment: This is a very nice looking Browning A-Bolt Medallion bolt action rifle built by Miroku in Japan and chambered in 22 magnum. It features a high gloss finished walnut stock, a high luster blue barrel and scroll engraving on the shoulders of the receiver and the magazine floorplate. The stock has a high gloss finish with rosewood tipped forend and a rosewood grip cap. It was made without iron sights but has a Leupold scope mounted on the receiver, so all you have to do is sight in with your preferred load and you’re ready to go. The rifle is in Fine-Excellent condition with about 97% of its original finish remaining. This rifle looks to have spent more time in storage than out with little evidence of use. Please see our photos and good luck!
