Browning A-Bolt Stainless M-1000 Eclipse

Description

The Browning A-Bolt Stainless M-1000 Eclipse is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered for .22-250 Rem., .308 Win., .300 WSM, .270 WSM and 7mm WSM. What sets the M-1000 Eclipse model 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. And the Stainless M-1000 Eclipse has, of course, a stainless steel barrel and costs about $300 more compared to the other Eclipse with a blued barrel.

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 Stainless M-1000 Eclipse for deer and larger game.
