Pennsylvania Game News - December 2020 - 25

Browning's 1996 BPR, or Browning
Pump Rifle, was a short-lived attempt at
providing an alternative to Remington's
M7600. It was finished nicely, accurate,
and lighter than the Remington. But the
BPR had a few design glitches and was
closed out in 2001 before any refinements
were made.
Several foreign manufacturers stepped
up to the plate in this era with some great
model lines, notably Tikka, Howa, CZ,
Mauser, Steyr and Sauer.
Sako, which owns Tikka, brought out
the Model 75 and later, the superb Model
85. All these makers continue to expand
their lines and have become mainstays,
standing tall among the major American
brands.
Ruger's lever-action rotary magazine
Model 96/44 in .44 magnum was a nice
little whitetail gun that was dropped after
a decade.
Winchester, meanwhile, reissued limited editions of early lever guns: the 1895,
1886 and 1892.
The long shadow of the defunct Remington Model 600 stretched across three
decades and emerged in 1997 as the boltaction Steyr Scout rifle as defined by Col.
Jeff Cooper.
The scout concept is notable in that it
influenced several new designs of shortbarreled hunting rifles, including the
Savage Model 11 Scout with its " Accutrigger. " The Ruger Model 77 Mk II
Frontier also was a lightweight, compact
design, as was the Ruger Gunsite Scout.
I had one of the M77 Frontiers with a
target-gray metal finish in a salt-andpepper laminate stock, chambered for the
wonderful .358 Winchester, and I consider
it one of the finest woods rigs for deer and

bear I've ever used.
The Model 600's influence popped up
one more time in Remington's Model 673.
The number designation was a salute to
the 600, the Model Seven action and the
year 2003. The M673 featured the old
ventilated rib, slab-style laminated stock,
and among other chamberings, was once
again offered in the potent .350 Remington Magnum, as well as the 6.5 Magnum.
The most surprising news from Remington in 2006 was its Model 798, a Serbian
import with a pure 98 Mauser action.
The cartridge that would not die,
the .45-70, burst upon the scene again
in the stubby 1895 Marlin Guide Gun.
Likewise, the .444 Marlin surfaced in the
Marlin Outfitter and Winchester's Timber
Carbine. The Marlin Guide Gun served
as the basis for much customization by
many specialty shops. There are at least
10 variants of the Marlin today, even a
" Dark " model with a modern tactical
influence. Henry USA also is making
serious inroads into the levergun market
with many new models.
There exists a large market for compact
ultralight rifles, pioneered by Melvin
Forbes at what is now the New Ultra Light
Arms. Of all the mainstream manufacturers, Kimber has answered the ultralight
call time and again with variants of its
84M. One of my favorites when going
way back in is the Kimber " Adirondack "
in 7mm-08. At 4 pounds, 2 ounces, and
with a 20-inch barrel, this stainless,
camo-clad wand is a liberating change
from hauling around a 9-pound gun. It
just makes sense when hunting our steep
Pennsylvania hills.
The main thing to remember about
these ultra-lightweights is that it takes
