Browning 1885 BPCR High Wall 45-70 Mint  Guns > Rifles > Cowboy Action Rifles Misc.
Description: I have for sale my Browning 1885 High Wall, BPCR (Black Powder Cartridge Rifle)Falling block action in, 45-70 Gvmn't. I am a retired/disabled police officer. I bought this rifle new, it has not been fired more than 50 times because, 1 month after obtaining the rifle, I sustained a severed injury to my neck while tackling a suspect while on duty, resulting in 3 herniated cervical disc. The 2nd, 3rd & 4th disc down in my neck. I can no longer shoot larger caliber firearms such as this one. I shot smokeless cartridges through it only, no black powder loads. This is a beautiful and very accurate rifle, that I swore I would never sell. However, it has sat in my gun safe ever since my injury. So I have decided to offer it for sale to someone who can get some use from it as it is an extremely accurate rifle. The bore and rifle is mint. The only mark on the rifle is on the rear stock where the long range sight folds down and rest on the top of the stock. It has a small dent where the little nut on the sight rest against the stock. This can easily be fixed with a dab of colored wood putty if it bothers you, but it is likely to happen again if you fold the sight down. I do not have the box for the rifle. I do have the plastic box that came with the rifle that contains the long range Soule sight and accessories. Following is a detailed description of the rifle. By the way, this is the BPCR that Browning stopped making some time ago, maybe in the early 90's? I'm not sure when they stopped making it. Below is the information about the rifle. 1)30" Badger made barrel, half round/half octagon 2)Fiddle back, hand rubbed walnut stock 3)Soule, long range rear sight with 3 eye cups. 4)Spirit globe front sight with bubble level and 6 inserts. 5)Falling block, color case hardened receiver 6)Excellent trigger, approx. 2Lb. This is about all I can think of. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Buyer pays actual shipping cost. If you will send me your zip code, I will get an estimate on the shipping cost with insurance. I accept money orders, personal checks "personal checks must clear before rifle ships." I also have a Pay Pal account. I will also send more, detailed pictures to anyone interested in the rifle. Just let me know what you would like. Thank you for your consideration!
