Browning A-Bolt Micro Hunter

Postby DUCK-DAWG » Mon Oct 17, 2011 3:29 pm

Any of you guys shooting one? I found a good deal on a used one, and was considering it as a birthday present for my dad. My only hang-up is the fact that it's smaller than the regular A-bolt. Is this a kid's rifle, or just a shortened-barrel version of the standard rifle?

It has a slightly shorter LOP and shorter barrel but otherwise I believe it is your standard A-Bolt. If it was a good deal it wouldn't keep me from buying it.

They are great lightweight and compact rifles. However one must take into consideration the shortened LOP when dealing with mounting optics. Many an eyebrow cut has come from scopes not being mounted forward enough to provide a proper eye relief and the short stock places your head that much farther forward on the gun...this not only reduces the effective exit pupil of the scope but places said eyebrow within striking distance.
