This is the last of this caliber rifle that Browning’s distributor had in stock. It is NIB. The rifle features a high gloss stock and high gloss blued metal finish. It comes with low-profile sling swivel bases with quick disconnect sling swivels and a nice Pachmayr butt stock recoil pad. The 1885 receiver features an automatic ejector system, adjustable shell deflector and is adjustable for trigger pull. The receiver and barrel are drilled and tapped for mounting a scope. What may appear to be scratched or blemished in the photos are due to reflections. I understand Browning is not planning on manufacturing any more.
Although the action is similar to the B-78 model and Browning is calling the rifle a B78 Sporter, it is not a reintroduction of the “original” B-78 model. The rifle actually has an 1885 High Wall receiver & action. Browning’s justification in calling it a B78 Sporter is based on the features and design/contours of the stock, forearm and barrel. Although I personally have a problem with Browning nomenclature, if you are looking for a really nice 1885 High Wall in .30-’06 caliber, this is the rifle for you.
