I like the 88, plus they grow in value every day!

I'd take the 88 in a minute. The Browning is just too ugly for me.

Never cared for the looks/feel of the BLR, but I hear good accuracy reports. The 88 is overly complex on the inside. Vote Savage 99, but that was not on OP's ballot! jack

I like the feel of the Win 88 much more than the BLR. The front locking action action of the 88 leads to less case stretch than the 99 also. The early BLR stock design did not seem to fit me well with a scope, the later BLR stock was different.
