My 700 Mountain Rifle (bought in 1988) does not have a detachable magazine or "clip". It has a hinged floorplate. The newer 700 Mountain Rifles were coming out as only "DM"'s for a little while. Those had the removeable clips with no floorplate. The 700 Mountain LSS that they sell this year is back to the hinged floorplate....no clip. They also sell a 700 KS Mountain out of the custom shop that has a Kevlar stock and a blind magazine...no clip....no hinged floorplate, big $$$$$, low weight. I always thought the DM model would be convenient but it kind of goes against the "lightweight" concept. IMO, the DM was also a little uglier. The Browning clip is hidden by the floorplate and should be "prettier", if that counts for anything. I think the Browning also has a 60 degree bolt throw if that matters to you. All in all, my 700 Mountain is my favorite rifle to carry. Mine is a .280 Rem. I don't own any Brownings so I can't compare them for you.
