SHOT Show 2019 – The Browning X-Bolt Pro bolt-action rifle is now available in three brand new variants with a GRS laminated plywood stock, a carbon fiber stock, and a Grade 5 American walnut stock
The Browning X-Bolt Pro bolt-action rifle was developed with a simple principle in mind: a perfect shot is only possible if a shooter and his or her firearm are in perfect symbiosis; the gun, scope and ammunition must comply with the will of the person pulling the trigger. New for 2019, Browning introduces three new variants of the X-Bolt Pro design, that keep even more faithful to this principle and provide accuracy, stability, and reliability for any use – be it at the shooting range or the hunting field.
The Browning X-Bolt Pro Long Range GRS is built around an extemely rigid, highly ergonomic GRS Sporter laminated plywood stock featuring a 4-way adjustable recoil pad; the 61 cm (24") long-range semi-heavy fluted barrel is hand-lapped for maximum accuracy and features an M14x1 threaded muzzle; a flush muzzle break and a thread protector are provided from factory.
Available in .308 Winchester and 6,5 Creedmoor, the Browning X-Bolt Pro Long Range GRS rifle also comes equipped with a 20 MOA Picatinny rail for optics.
The Browning X-Bolt Pro Carbon is an ultra-lightweight variant of the design conceived for hunting, and sports an ultra-rigid carbon fiber stock with a compressed high-density foam core, a 353mm / 13.8" buttstock and an Inflex II recoil pad. The fluted, hand-lapped barrel offers an M14x1 threaded muzzle; other features include a fluted bolt, a tungsten Cerakote finish on all metal surfaces and on the magazine buttplate, and a Super Feather trigger.
Available in .243 Winchester, 6,5 Creedmoor, .30-06 Springfield, .308 Winchester and 7mm Remington, the Browning X-Bolt Pro Carbon rifle is issued with accessories such as a set of 30mm scope rings and a 7mm stock spacer.
The Browning X-Bolt Pro Grade 5 bolt-action rifle stands out from the crowd thanks to an oil-finished, Grade 5/6 American walnut stock, with rosewood and metal inserts on the handguard and pistol grip and the usual Inflex II recoil pad (available in 12, 20 and 25mm variants) on the 375 mm / 14.7" buttstock.
The standard-profile, fluted, hand-lapped barrel of the Browning X-Bolt Pro Grade 5 bolt-action rifle is available in 56 cm / 22" and 61 cm / 24" variants, and features a threaded M14x1 muzzle. Other features of the Browning X-Bolt Pro Grade 5 rifle include a Super Feather Trigger, a fluted bolt and a butt swivel ring; calibers available include .30-06 Springfield, .308 Winchester, .300 Winchester Magnum and .243 Winchester.
