Browning's X-Bolt rifle series continues with this bolt-action hunting rifle complete with a durable matte black composite stock coated with Dura Touch® armor coating and then paired with matte stainless steel action and barrel to create a package that's strong one eye appeal. The Feather Trigger® is adjustable from 3 to 5 lbs. After the shot, the bullet passes down a button rifled barrel and past a recessed crown that enhances accuracy by sending the bullet off on a steady launch. Other features on this Browning hunting rifle are a low profile action, 60-degree bolt that's easy to operate with a scope mounted, and a top tang safety. A detachable rotary magazine aids with cartridge management. The special bolt unlock button permits opening the bolt without disengaging the safety. The rifle comes with sling swivel studs installed.

I purchased 2 of these for a brown bear trip to Alaska. both were accurate. They were both in 375 H&H that Bass pro custom ordered for me. They are described by browning as " WHEN YOU'RE HUNTING DANGEROUS GAME THE RELIABILITY OF YOUR RIFLE SUDDENLY TAKES ON A WHOLE NEW MEANING". Both of these rifles had a serious flaw in that if you went to cycle the action very fast it would stick . The more force you put on the bolt the harder it would stick. This was with or without a round in the magazine. They both eject fine but if you put any kind of force on the bolt pushing it forward then it sticks to the point you can't push the bolt forward to feed another round. I have had both rifles actions polished by a local gunsmith and Browning. Neither has completely resolved the issue. I have a Sako Kodiak in 375 that does not do this (I loaned it to my son for the same trip). I also have a Winchester model 70 pre 64 super grade 375 that doesn't do this. t would not buy this rifle if intended for dangerous game. By the way I did shoot a brown bear. Hit it through the heart lung region and it still ran 50 yards. My bolt stuck while trying to slam the bolt forward for a second shot. Never got one off as could not slide the bolt forward. I have been fortunate to have numerous rifles by many different makers. I don't have a problem with the accuracy of these guns but the action has a flaw that does not make it a dangerous game gun as touted. Would not buy these again.
