You have a nice Browning rifle, don't be in a hurry to make a mistake by cutting the barrel. Totally unnecessary.
Your Browning also will NOT have an extra tang safety-which you do not need. Just like the original 86/71
designed by John Browning. Sights like the Lyman 66 are perfect.

You will enjoy the 348 WCF, it is close to a lever actioned 35 Whelen. I only have 6 of the Winchester versions made
in the 30s and 40s. Good shooting. Viel vernugen beim Browning!!

The Brownings were made by Miroku and are very well made and no extra safeties on them

Nice gun by the way, you will not be disappointed. As for barrel length, I had a Browning carbine and now have a rifle length Winchester 71 and the longer one handles better in my opinion.

My Miroku was slicker than my Winchester.


Obey lawful commands. Problem solved.

I like my Browning carbine. I handled the original Winchester's and, IMO, the Browning's are put together better. Mine currently wears a Burris FF3 sight.

They are very good guns in a great cartridge...but...the trigger hole in the lever is so small that it's really tough to get your trigger finger into if you have any type of glove on.

Thank you all for the replies. I've now got a Lyman 66 in the mail for it and have ordered 100 cases as well as a box of the Hornady FTX bullets and some dies.
Compared to the Marlin it definetely rattles less and it has a much shorter bolt throw as well as a steeper grip. I have a feeling this rifle and I are going to get along just fine.
