Most manufacturers come out with a new list of merchandise around this time every year. It will include everything they plan to come out with during the next year, including things that won't see the light of day until October or November.

I hope they follow thru with the new ones. I really liked the originals except for the factory trigger, maybe they can do better with the trigger this time.

The B78 was Browning's first effort at bringing out a "modernized" Highwall maybe 30 years ago. They upgraded it a bit and reintroduced it as the 1885.

Looks like they are just resuming the use of the B78 model designation as a sales technique. Actions are probably the same as recent 1885s.

No experience with the B78, but I love my Browning 1885. Spectacular rifle. I just wish they would follow Ruger's lead and offer more obscure chamberings. IMO it is a better looking, better handling, and better shooting rifle than the No. 1 (or No. 3).

I have an 1885 in 7 mag and two B78's in 45-70. They are all GREAT rifles but the one B78 I have with a scope is a deer killing machine! Shoots groups well under an inch at 100 yards with my souped-up handloads. I'd hope they make the new ones as good or better.
