We don’t want to leave objectivity completely at the door, but TTAG hearts Wild West Guns. Last year they sprinkled some pixie dust and transformed my deplorable Marlin 1894 into a cowboy race gun, and now they’ve opened a new shop in Nevada and turned their attention to Browning’s top-shelf BLR.
The combination package starts out with a .300 Winchester Magnum BLR. The BLR gets a Wild West tune-up until it’s slicker than snot on a doorknob, and then it gets an additional custom Wild West barrel and fore-end in your choice of .375 Ruger or .416 Ruger. The .300 Win. Mag barrel has a cantilever scope mount which retains zero, and the big-bore barrels have a hooded front sight and Wild West’s home-grown BLR ghost ring aperture rear.
Globe-trotting hunters are often restricted in the number of firearms they can travel with, and the Wild West BLR Combo will smoke-check anything from antelope to elephant. In style.
