Visually, the gun jumps out at you because of its finishing. The barrel and action are finished in burnt bronze Cerakote finish. The synthetic stock has an A-TACS AU (arid urban) finish that is designed to blend into a wide range of environments.
However, the gun is more than just a standard X-Bolt with a new coat of paint. According to Browning, the new gun also has a new fluted and free floated, heavy barrel that is supposed to be quite stiff for improved accuracy. The receiver is glass bedded.
The company added a muzzle brake on the end of the threaded barrel for softer shooting. If you prefer to shoot without it, it easily removes, and the company does include a thread protector with the rifle.
