Just shoulder the BLR Lightweight '81, Long Action rifle and you can feel the difference. The original '81-style straight stock has returned. It makes even a long-action quicker handling and gives this advanced lever action a distinctive, traditional look that a lever-action rifle should have. The aluminum receiver and rotating bolt combine to make the BLR lightweight, yet magnum tough.
