Talked to the shop owner, the BAR is NIB. Comes with the box, paperwork and all that good stuff. It sat in the box for most of its years as overstock at a place that went out of business and sold it to this shop.
Here in Denver it seems there's not much demand for a semi-auto 30-06 and even a couple people looked at me weird for telling them its what I was getting. I'm a glutton for punishment according one of them. Hippies...am I right?

Why would someone look at you weird for that? It's a fine rifle.

The semi auto action will remove a great deal of the felt recoil. Whomever is telling ya it is going to kick harder doesnt know much about rifles

Check the Mag follower. Browning put a drop of Red paint on the follower, if the rifle has been used very lightly, it will show wear. If it has some use, it will be gone. NIB means just that.

I've owned a few older Brownings. Just because it has the box and original papers, not to mention great condition does not make it NIB. LNIB, like new in box should knock $75.00 to 100.00 off the price.
These guns are very desirable though. I bought a 1980 Steel receiver BLR in .308 a 5 years back. I paid $475.00 for it and the paint was perfect on the mag follower. Not a scratch on the rifle, no box. I had a guy that was coming over to buy my Bushmaster DCM. He offered me $825.00 for the BLR. I gave him a 200 round battle pak of German DAG 7.62x51 w/ it. I took the 19.95 price tag off it 1st! In 5 years, that was what happened to the Browning market. I have a well used A-bolt Gold Medalion in .22WMR that I paid $425.00 for new Many years ago, it is worth $700.00 now.
