    Semi autos in 300 win mag - Options ?

    My Browning BAR (Safari MK2) bolt wont open. Something let go and its locked up solid. In order to disengauge the lugs from the barrel, Id have to take the barrel off. In order to do that, youve got to get the forestock off. In order to do that, you have to open the bolt......blah blah blah...around and around we go.

    I was thinking of buying another BAR since I have 2 mags already, and just using this one as a parts gun. Then I got thinking....whats available out there these days ? Maybe try something new ?

    My only absolutes are non-restricted, semi-auto, and 300 win mag. I know about the Benelli R1, but I dont see much else out there in the gun world that meets those 3 requirements. Anybody know of anything else ? No, it doesnt have to be in current production. Im not closed to the idea of used guns by any means.

    The Benelli R1 is one good looking rifle. There’s been one in 270 WSM at the corner shop for quite some time wearing a gorgeous chunk of walnut. I keep hoping he’ll mark it down one day.... My reading indicates that they’re a bit finicky on ammunition, but once you get the load worked out, reliable and very accurate.

    The Merkel semi auto can be had in 300 WM. Not sure where you’d find one here or what they might be worth.

    Rare beasts for sure. I like the Verney Carron and the Merkel. Unfortunately nobody seems to have them in 300wm in Canada. The Sauer is nice too. I didn't find any listed in Canada (maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place). I did find one listing on the web. Only $3000 USD !!!!

    Is yours the type you have to take the butt stock off to drop the trigger group? Or is your the one that you can see the 2 pins to pop out to lower the trigger group?

    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because thatís the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"
