Check your local store flyers.
My store preview for Campbellford store has the Browning Leverage for 249 (150 off CT inflated price) which makes it a competitive price to any I have seen before. Great gun. Search the forum for some reviews of it but I love mine.
Its a solid under lever and the one I got has a beautiful wood stock.

Also this store has stack-on safes and a cabinets up to 1/2 off..... for your new gun.

Hmmm....I don't yet have a Browning or a leverage air rifle in my collection yet.
And I haven't bought anything in a couple of months.

Now where did I put my Cdn Tire Money?
Maybe I have $250 worth.

There are trigger mods - but basically this has a typical Chinese single stage trigger.
Polishing, shimming, and spring trimming. Trigger is definitely not its strong point.
I did a review a while back. Its a nice underlever, even with the trigger.

PM me for more details, if you like.

the leverage is a great rifle, IMO its close to the top for chinese made

the trigger is not a T-06 or a rekord, but very good, you get a pseudo first stage (if i can call it that), hit a wall, pull a little more and it breaks, some people would call that creep but i don't cause you can at least predict it, and its nowhere near as bad as a crosman

i had a chance to inspect the internal components, its not german quality but its at least on par with say a Ruger air rifle

the included 3-9x40 scope is very usable, not an ultra thin reticle, but not that thick either

the rifle is heavy so stable, it is pellet fussy, mine likes JSB's but likes the express a little bit more

very long break in period, i'm talking a tin and a half, but once broken in and with the right pellet, 20 yard groups will blow you away

I checked the online sales flyer for Cdn Tire and it expires today.
So I checked my local Cdn Tire store and the don't appear to have any air rifles on sale however when I asked about the Browning Leverage I was told it was on sale in the computer so I snatched one up.

The rifle I bought appeared to have been removed from the original packaging but undamaged and complete.

My initial impression, the wood stock is pretty nice, not high quality but not that bad either.
I've only shot a few pellets through it so it's a bit too soon to say how accurate, consistent or powerful it is. I did notice that it didn't have the vibration that most of my springers have.
Cocking this air rifle is complicated but I'm sure it will become second nature quickly.
The large "breech" where pellets are loaded is nice.
The neon glo sights are nice. I don't think I'll bother mounting a scope on this rifle.

This will soon become my new favourite air rifle.

I had one of those, payed $119us for reconditioned unit

to describe it with one word: garbage

no parts for it, underlever broke in 1 week, Mike from flying dragon was nice and donated one, trigger sear made from sheet metal stamped together and shown signs of wear in 2 weeks, underlever safety catch never worked, trigger pull feels like you dragging nail on asphalt (no joke), took 2 weeks to polish internals, wood is soft and gets damaged easily, rear spring guide is plastic, rear sight to low, replaced factory screw with alen key longer screw and nut...
it was accurate at the end, yes, and I'm happy to get reed from it

do yourself a favor and get HW77 and enjoy it
