I don't know about a Hog Stalker but the "nitestalker" could take out a Hog at 600 yards. The Sharps 45-110-500 Straight can take anything on the planet. The only problem is we don't have hogs here.

To my knowledge the Hog stalker was introduced at the shot show. That ws 2 weeks ago. Even if someone has bought a hog stalker they haven't owned it long enough to have an opinion. Another issue with Brownings is the composite stocks do not hold their value. The hog stalker might be an exception. I can go to the high dollar gun shop to buy a used black synthetic stock with a blued exterior for $600. Some of the used synthetic guns have a nice scope.

You can't find a graded Browning in the same shop.

For the prices I'm seeing on gun broker, I'd buy an m1a scout or socom 16 first.

I would ask the clerk in the gun shop if he has sold any. Maybe he can introduce you to someone that owns a hog stalker. I would find out if you can get a proper magazine as well. Otherwise you are going to be putting a pop rivet the magazine to be legal.

I think they are better now. The black or mossy oak polyuretanish-looking ones, they are solid and scratch resistant. "Weather something"? can't remember the name. Way better than The Remy SPS or Savage plastics.

This is just a rebadged FNH -USA FNAR,that has been hydro dipped in camo. It isn't anything special,and they are a pain in the a$$ to take apart and clean.

I'll stick with an AR-10 style platform,they are a lot easier to maintain,and easier to modify with aftermarket accessories if you want something different.

Default Browning shortrac 308 hogstalker semi auto

Ya but in canada a ar 10 is hard to buy as for cleaning i dont mind the extra work actually i find taking it apart and cleaning the gun and reassembling kinda fun and a good chance to go over it . Its also nice to know it has good heritage being a rebadged fnh . The gun i hate to clean the most would be my svt 40 after using corrosive amo but it to is fun to shoot.. in canada i paid 300$ for the svt 40 and 1100$ for the hog stalker as per the comment nothing special lol. Its special to me
No mods for me and the only extras i need are a good scope and a nice sling
