The X-Bolt builds on the proven successes of past Browning rifles and adds numerous improvements certain to place the X-Bolt at the top of the pack. The bolt unlock button works with the top-tang safety to offer enhanced safety while unloading. Updated styling features more compact dimensions for a smaller, quicker, sleeker look and feel, while trimming weight. To ensure the stability of optics, scope bases are attached to the receiver using four screws per base. For precise shooting in the field or off the bench, there’s absolutely no substitute for a good, predictable trigger. The X-Bolt’s three-lever Feather Trigger provides a clean, crisp pull with no take-up or creep and minimal over travel. The trigger is screw adjustable from 3 to 5 lbs. and factory preset at approximately 3.5 lbs. An alloy trigger housing contains the hard chromed steel components that are highly polished on all critical contact surfaces. Precise engagement angles mean the X-Bolt Feather Trigger feels light and right and stays that way through many thousands of rounds.
