Thoughts on the Browning model 78 High Wall clone?
« on: July 04, 2022, 05:57:48 PM »
While scanning through Gunbroker for a possible trapdoor purchase, I ran across the Browning 78 in .45-70, a Highwall clone.  I have a Browning-Miroku 1895  in .30-40 that I am happy with.  Wondering if the 1883 clones are just as good.  It has a 24 inch barrel which might wrok well for my Cody Dixon rifle.   I have been using a Sharps, but find the loading process too slow to be competitive, even against trapdoors.  Thinking maybe moving the Sharps over to the long range bench.

The Brownings and Winchester Highwalls are outstanding rifles.  I have one of the Browning BPCR's I've used for long range (1,000 yards) for many years.  I also have a Winchester Highwall sporter in 45-70 that I use for Cody Dixon. I have also used the Winchester sporter out to 600 yards with excellent results. I love them both.

I also have several friends that have the Winchester sporter version in both 38-55 and 45-70. Also one of the Low Wall versions in 22 LR.   All shoot exceptionally well.
