  • Browning Straight pull Maral - anyone else keen to get one ??

    Been eyeing this beautiful rifle off for the past 6 months - thinking of trading in my Sauer for it , but yet to be released in this country in 2014 , has anyone been luck enough to get one early ? your thoughts on this rifle ?

      If and when they get in to Australia, on a Cat B licence, I may be persuaded.

        Not keen. The bolt handle looks too far forward to me but what would I know, without handling one? I like the idea of a quick shooter and priced a Heym but at $G4, it's out of my reach.

          I think they look great & are good value imo.
          They have been on sale for pre orders for a while.

        Not keen either. What's the advantage over a pump?

          What a good question. Easier to clean?

          i got to handle and work the action on a demo one at melb shot show this year and i was very very impressed.
          how ever the action wasn't even remotely as smooth as it looks in the promo video, it required a huge amount of force and felt like i was using a pull start chainsaw but i think the reason was the return spring was stupidly overpowered which would cause the gun to jump forward when i let go of the bolt.
          still would buy if i could afford spending 2.5k
