BLR Lightweight '81 Stainless Takedown

Browning model BLR 81 Lightweight Stainless Takedown

The Browning model BLR ’81 Lightweight Stainless Takedown is a lever-action hunting rifle chambered in 15 different cartridges.

The Browning Lever Rifle ’81 Lightweight is made of a lightweight aircraft-grade alloy. It is available in a variety sizes, but each sub-model uses the same action. The lever controls a rotating bolt, which rotates when the firing pin punches forward then the shooter must pull the lever down and back to reverse action and reset the firing pin.

It allows the shooter to fire rapidly and accurately while controlling the chambering. It comes with a detachable magazine and has a recoil pad on the butt. It comes with a TRUGLO/Marble’s fiber optic front sight, which uses bright colors that are easy to align and are adjustable. It is a “takedown” model meaning it breaks down easily for storage and transport.

Browning recommends the BLR ’81 Lightweight for hunting hoofed animals and large game.
