Our Assessment: This is a nifty little Browning BPR. These were only made from 1977 to 1982 so you won’t see many around; especially in this condition. This example is from the first year of manufacture in 1977. This rifle is in Fine-Excellent condition with a great bore and excellent mechanics. This would make a terrific little plinker for a young one, or an addition to a collection for the Browning enthusiast. Please see our photos and good luck!
