Browning X-Bolt Hunter

Description

The Browning X-Bolt Hunter is a bolt-action rifle chambered in 16 calibers. The X-Bolt Hunter is also offered in a left-hand model and is one of 18 variations on the X-Bolt rifle series offered by Browning. Unlike the composite stock of the X-Bolt Stalker, the Hunter utilizes a walnut satin-finished stock that makes the gun slightly heavier. The rifle is finished in a low-luster blue, as opposed to the matte blue finish of the Stalker. Browning recommends the rifle for hunting.

The X-Bolt Hunter features a steel receiver that is drilled and trapped for scope mounts. The rifle’s barrel varies from 22″ (with smaller calibers) to 26″ (on magnum calibers) and is also finished in low-luster blue. One of the X-Bolt series’ signature features is Feather Trigger system, an adjustable three-level pull that comes factory set at 3.5 lbs. The weight can be changed from 3-5 lbs. based with a screw adjustment.

The rifle features a custom build recoil pad that Browning says has been engineered with directional deflection to pull the comb down and away from the face of the shooter. The X-Bolt Hunter also features a top-tang safety with bolt unlock button, which allows the bolt to be unlocked and opened with the safety in the on safe position.

Browning Arms Company is a Utah-based firearms maker that produces a variety of a wide variety of shotguns, rifles, and pistols. The company is currently a subsidiary of Fabrique Nationale de Herstal.
