I purchased a Browning A bolt in 325 WSM about two years ago. I guess the biggest problem I had with the rifle is it is made in Japan. How long have they been doing this I always thought browning was American. Oh yeah if it would not be for me reloading I would have not purchased this weapon $58.00 a box two years ago. I am however very satisfied with it. I use 150gr Hornady psp and have shot deer on out past 300yds with it. I would put a 300win mag up against it any day though. I bought this rifle with the thought of taking just one rifle weather I wanted to hunt elk, bear, mule deer, or whitetail.

Browning firearms have been traditionally made in locations world-wide. John M. Browning's first rifle, the Single Shot, was made in Ogden, Utah. The next guns carrying the Browning name were made in Belgium. This continued for many decades. This was the result of John M. Browning's lasting relationship with Fabrique Nationale, in Herstal, Belgium. Most Browning guns were made in Belgium by F.N. until the mid '70s when some production was shifted to Miroku in Japan. Today's Browning firearms are made in either Belgium, Portugal, Japan or in the United States.

the triggers are there weak point. when i got mine i almost had to tie a string with a brick on it to the trigger, throw the brick over my shoulder ,aim ,and wait for the brick to hit the end of the string to get the gun to go off

Haha, just had a mental picture of this process. But one question, what kind of knot did you tie around the trigger?

half hitch or slip knot. its sucks when you forget to take the saftey off . I tryed fishing line . had some 17 pound test but it broke before the trigger went off and i looked even stupider when i had to go find my brick in the tall grass.

The trigger on mine feels fine. But I have felt guns like you mentioned. That would be an interesting way to shoot.

I've been shooting a Japanese abolt in 308 for years. The trigger is tuned down to about 3.5 lbs. It's a fine shooter

I may get kicked out of MSGO for saying this but I've learned to trust Japanese products. The seem to take more pride in their manufacturing. I shoot a few Japanese guns. My wife and I drive Japanese cars and I carry a Japanese knife. The stuff just doesn't wear out
