Went and picked up my new Browning BLR TD in 308 cal. After seeing and shooting one at my gun club, I just had to have one. It is a work of art!! Metal and wood fits together perfect. Note that the trigger comes down with the lever. You can see the gears on the bolt. In the photos below, you will see the hammer in half cock, plus a photo with the hammer tip flipped forward forming a foolproof safety. Therefore making it very safe to carry a round in the chamber. I will be mounting a scout type scope on it. As a take down, it will easy to carry in a backpack. I have also ordered the Browning Take down carry case.
