Browning A-Bolt M-1000 Eclipse

Description

The Browning A-Bolt M-1000 Eclipse is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered for different six cartridges. What sets the M-1000 Eclipse apart from other A-Bolts is its laminated gray stock with satin finish. The stock also has a a thumb-hole grip and an integrated Monte Carlo cheek piece, which is slightly raised. The M-1000 Eclipse also offers Browning’s Ballistic Optimizing Shooting System barrels. Browning describes a BOSS barrel as an adjustable threaded barrel attachment that promises to completely tame barrel vibrations in order to maximize accuracy.

Other features include a free-floated barrel, so when the barrel heats and swells it won’t press against the stock. Browning’s Top Tang safety, which places the safety on the tang (or the back of the pistol grip where the action hand’s thumb naturally falls). It also has a shortened 60-degree bolt lift and an adjustable four-pound trigger.

Browning recommends the A-Bolt M-1000 Eclipse for deer and larger game.
