The X-Bolt builds on past Browning rifles, and adds numerous improvements that place the X-Bolt at the top. The X-Bolt’s new three-lever Feather Trigger provides a clean, crisp pull with no take-up or creep and minimal overtravel. The X-Bolt is free-floated by bedding the front and rear of the action for stability and to help maintain barrel to stock spacing for consistent accuracy. A recessed muzzle crown helps protect the rifling from damage. The Inflex 2 recoil pad has proprietary construction and material to promote a directional deflection of recoil forces, pulling the stock comb away from your face to reduce felt recoil and muzzle climb. The bolt unlock button works in conjunction with the top-tang safety to provide an added measure of safety during checking and unloading of the chamber. The X-Bolt Max Varmint/Target features a matte black Max composite stock with adjustable comb, length of pull spacers and vertical pistol grip; ideal for long range shooting, match grade stainless steel bull barrel with fluting, extended bolt handle and fore-end rail.
