I bought this rifle last spring to use primarily in a "Running Deer" contest and for hunting. I wanted something light weight with low recoil and a fast action. This one in 7mm-08 does it. It is very, very pleasant to shoot with both factory loads and my reloads (which I don't load to max in any case.). And a beautifully finished rifle!
Some people don't like glossly, pretty wood finishes, nor slick bluing. But I do. And this is a nice-looking piece!
Able's got it to me (from Houston to WV) within a week for only $17.00 (then).
I researched a lot on the Internet and local gun stores before buying this rifle at Able's. Firstly, they were the only one to have this "non-81" version with the Schnaubel fore end and pistol grip (note that the other BLRs listed are the Western version with a barrel band and straight stock). Few dealers could even find this particular model. And Able's had it, and also at the lowest price of any place that I had looked.
Can't say enough about the product nor the service. Well done, Able's!! - G. J.
