The 97D is a small frame single shot rifle that's
suitable for big game as well as small game and varmint
hunting. It originally evolved from our World Champion long range silhouette pistol
action and accurate gun making process. The 97D action itself
is inherently accurate and simple... no vibration or stress
inducing machinery hanging out into the forend. Onto this we
fit an EABCO Accuracy Barrel, precision turned and threaded
between centers at a rate that keeps stress and flex out.
Barrels are snugged and sealed rather than torqued onto the
frame... again, to minimize induced stress. Each chamber is
individually reamed on-center and individually head spaced. We
feel the crown is so critical to accuracy that we leave it
until after the gun is finished... our 11 degree target crowns
are cut last and left bright... Our trademark finishing touch. Shootability... the user friendliness of the Brown 97D is
superb. Rifle stocks are designed intentionally for scope use
and position your eye naturally. These rifles balance and point
as though they're part of your anatomy.
The Deluxe 97D Rifle is configured with our most popular, custom options. It features a 24" blue barrel,
French Gray Receiver, 2-Ring KeyLock Magnum scope mount, and
swivel studs. The Base Model All Blue 97D rifles are always in production so
they are either on the shelf for immediate delivery or less of a wait. You can
add custom features to a Base Model (at extra cost) to make it uniquely your's.
