  Developed from our World Champion BF Silhouette Pistols, the Brown Model 97D Rifle delivers superb accuracy. Standard or built- to-order, the 97D can be personalized with custom options we install during the manufacturing process. * Please, Click on the Photos to Enlarge and Show Detail *
  Unique Falling Block Action - The entire firing mechanism including the hammer is contained in the block. When you open the action the block slides down and the ejector throws your spent cartridges straight back. The design is simple and direct and results in a very fast locktime... an inherent accuracy feature. Take the BF Action Tour and see a photo essay of how the action opens, closes, cocks, fires, and ejects... it's neat!

97d01.gif (91379 bytes)  EABCO Accuracy Barrels are used in all of our standard chamberings. Each barrel is turned and threaded On-Center and given a Concentric, 11° Target Crown. Into this barrel, the chamber of your choice is reamed and individually headspaced. Chambers are dimensioned properly tight... insuring good alignment with the bore.
  We use a process of Zero Stress Barrel Mating. Our barrels are threaded to fit snuggly onto the actions without torquing. Then, they're sealed into place with an industrial Loctite®. Finally, we don't stamp our markings into our guns, they're electronically etched. Stress-free barrels shoot better. 

Standard Models Only - No More Made-to-Order Service

Delivery, Deposit, and FFL Dealer Pricing - Model 97D Rifles are built-to-order with approximate delivery 6-12 months after we receive the order. A non-refundable deposit of 50% is required when the order is placed with the balance due upon completion of the firearm. Firearms must be shipped to your local  FFL Dealer to qualify for the FFL price. You can place the order, pay the price, and arrange for your FFL Dealer to accept delivery. Or, you can give the order details to your FFL Dealer to place the order for you. Either way, we need a signed copy of your Dealer's "FFL" (Federal Firarms License) before we can ship. If you order through our Shopping Cart System we'll contact you for your FFL Dealer information.
