I don't think the BBR is a collectors treasure or anything. However there is something neat about have a 34yr old rifle that has never been mucked with. Still as beautiful as the day it was first sold.
Knowing me though I will shoot it. For what purposes...... I'm not yet sure. I don't expect a target rifle and for hunting I have workhorse Tikkas to fill that role.
I am really curious to know how well it shoots though. From what I have read, other BBR owners say they shoot great.
