Straight grip, gloss walnut, polished blue barrel and aluminum receiver, iron sights, tapped for scope, detachable magazine, lever action rifle

With a timeless beauty that’s more than skin deep. The BLR Lightweight ’81 is ready and waiting to be your next lever-action hunting rifle. The gloss finish on the walnut straight grip stock contrasts beautifully with the deeply polished blue finish on the receiver and the barrel. This is what a serious lever-action rifle should be, and what every other lever-action wishes it was.

A few details about this model.  You will need to look close in person, but when you do you'll notice that the stock is sculpted from fine Walnut and the cut checkering in the grip and fore-end is crisply executed for lasting good looks and a more solid grip. The straight grip BLR stock is true to the classic lines of the lever action rifle and has a traditional carbine strap at the fore-end.

Nuances of select walnut. The stock has a deep, glossy finish that brings out every nuance of the wood’s warm color and grain. The well-formed recoil pad helps reduce felt recoil and flinching. 

The exceptional accuracy of the BLR comes from its precision machined, button-rifled barrel that puts those fast-stepping magnum bullets exactly where they're wanted. Add in the advantages of several great stock designs and finishes, a detachable box magazine, low profile adjustable sights and a wide, grooved trigger that travels with the lever to avoid pinching fingers and it's clear the Browning BLR is ready for any action.


You are never limited to flat nose bullets. 

Most lever-action rifles suffer from accuracy problems caused by the limitations of the flat-nosed ammunition for which they are chambered. Not the Browning BLR. The BLR utilizes a reliable box magazine that protects bullet tips and allows it to fire powerful game-dropping magnum cartridges. An extremely smooth rack and pinion-driven bolt locks tight to the barrel and gives the BLR the kind of superior accuracy that rivals many bolt-actions.

Hammer

The fold-down hammer has two positions at half-cock so the status of the rifle is readily seen. The folding hammer provides an added measure of safety when the hammer is at half-cock. The hammer has four basic positions: Full-cock, half-cock, folded hammer position and dropped, or fired position.

Action

Advanced, lightning fast, glass-smooth rack and pinion lever-action. Strong rotating head, multiple-lug breech bolt with a recessed bolt face and side ejection.

Receiver

Lightweight, sturdy machined aircraft-grade aluminum. Drilled and tapped to accept scope mounts.

Sights

Low profile, square notch, screw adjustable rear sight aligns easily with a highly visible gold bead on raised ramp front sight.

Barrel

Individually machined, precision button-rifled, heat-treated chromoly steel. Crowned muzzle. Barrels are triple checked for interior finish, straightness and air-gauged for uniformity.

Trigger

Wide groove design trigger with short, smooth pull of approximately 4½ lbs. Trigger travels with lever.

Stock and Forearm

American walnut, straight '81-style with classic round forearm or pistol grip stock with Schnabel forearm. High-gloss finish. Checkered.

Magazine

The flush-mounted detachable box magazine has a capacity of three magnum or four standard rounds, plus one in the chamber.

Safety Lock

All Browning firearms are shipped with a free trigger lock, cable lock, padlock (shown) or chamber lock, depending on model, to assist in the safe storage of firearms.

Recoil Pad

Deluxe recoil pad standard.
