I'm still in the process of buy my wife a rifle and found the caliber 308. After shooting a few guns she wants a auto loader. She is 5'1" and her lop measures 11 1/4" nobody makes a rifle in that measurement. So do i buy a used winchester 100 and make sur thats what she wants or cut down a 900.00 browning for a trial run. Any suggestions please.

Why not pick up a aftermarket stock. Not as expensive and you can put the original back on if you decide to sell it.

If you go with a Remington 7400, 7600 or 750, you can install a Knoxx or ATI adjustable buttstock (  870 units fit 7400 / 750 ) . This will allow you to tailor it to her size.

The Winchester 100s were supposed to have some kind of a trigger problem that prompted a recall of them--YEARS after they stopped making them---I would not get one.

Why not just buy the rifle she likes and cut the stock to fit.  Not a terribly difficult process and unless it is a mega-bucks model no big deal.

Browning's short-trac auto might be your best choice with it's changeable recoil pads.

If you're set on getting an auto...... go with the BAR..... I have 2, .243 & 30-06...... neither one has EVER jammed!   You should be able to find a used one that is less than $900.  If you find one for less than $550, I would just cut the stock down on it......... if you can't, then I would think about a  second stock to cut down.  Good luck!

I second the Browning BAR.  They are fantastic guns, I have a .243 and a 7mm and love both of them.  I just put a Bell and Carlson stock on my 7mm and it is a nice stock.  You can get them with shorter lengths of pull as well.  http://rifle-stocks-order-page.easystorecreator.net/items/bell-and-carlson-rifle-stocks/two-piece-rifle~shotgun-stocks/two-piece-rifle-and-shot-gun-stocks-detail.htm?1=1

I would go with a BAR myself. A good smith can cut the stock to fit with a good recoil pad with no problems at all with less the 100 to 125 in the stock work and you will not ever worry about it again a done deal.

................Without question; go the BAR and have the stock cut down..........Browning makes the 308 BAR in the "lightweight stalker." Comes in @ 7.2 lbs., w/ a 20 " barrel. The LOP is listed at 13 3/4" which will be too long for her......Cut that stock down and she`ll have a real winner there.

I also have a Winchester 100 in .243 that my dad got as his first deer rifle and he gave to me as my first deer rifle,  it is a fine rifle as well.  It is lighter than the BAR and it a great deer hunting and carry rifle.  I actually really like that rifle as well.
