Browning Expands X-Bolt Line

    Browning is expanding their X-Bolt line, the line they’ve claimed is “the new benchmark in bolt-action rifles.” Among other improvements upon their other bolt-actions, the X-Bolt line has Browning’s adjustable three-lever Feather Trigger and is lighter-weight overall. The company says the two new additions promise superior accuracy and being immediately hunt-ready.


    From Browning:

    Browning will expand its X-Bolt rifle line for 2015 to include the new X-Bolt Eclipse Target and Eclipse Varmint models. Both models feature a laminated gray satin finish stock that has a thumbhole grip with Monte Carlo cheek piece.
