Rifle is Japanese made, some light blue wear and stock dings, still looks nice. The rear sight is gone, :( so I'd have to try to find a replacement. Guy is asking $450 for it, does this sound right? I admit having reservations after readings someones post that Browning no longer has parts for these.

I'd buy it, in a New York Minute.

I'd gripe about the missing sight as a price bartering tool, then either peep or scope it anyway & forget replacing the sight - since it's stamped anyway.

I would try and barter a little also but that price doesn't sound too bad any way . I know i wouldn't sell my mdl 81 steel 358 for that price or at all for that matter. Superdown

Demented: Don't worry about parts - BLRs don't break. Besides, if it is a '81 BLR model, many of the internal parts are the same as current models. And, by the way, the price is in line with what I was paying for one a couple of years ago.
