Browning Rifle Reviews – A-Bolt Composite Stalker

1 Jun

The Browning A-Bolt Composite Stalker is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in 11 calibers. The Composite Stalker is just one of many in the A-Bolt series, but what separates it from other A-Bolt models is its composite stock, of course, and the availability of Browning’s Ballistic Optimizing Shooting System barrels on select calibers. BOSS is a threaded barrel attachment that promises to completely tame barrel vibrations (harmonics). It’ll improve accuracy because when a round is fired the initial explosion sends violent vibrations throughout the gun and can throw off the projectiles trajectory..

Otherwise it has common A-bolt features including a free-floated barrel, where the stock won’t interfere with the steel barrel’s action. It uses Browning’s Top Tang Safety, which places the safety on the back of the pistol grip or where the action-hand’s thumb naturally falls. The feature also locks and unlocks the bolt. The bolt itself requires a short 60-degree lift instead of 90. And, it has an adjustable 4-pound trigger.

Browning recommends the Browning A-Bolt Composite Stalker for deer and varmint hunting.

Browning Rifle Reviews – A-Bolt Hunter, Left-Hand

16 May

The Browning A-Bolt Hunter, Left-Hand is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in .300 WSM, .270 WSM, .325 WSM, 7mm WSM and .223 Rem. The A-Bolt, Left-Hand is identical to the best-selling standard model, but, of course, is designed for left-handed shooters. The A-Bolt’s action is known for its smooth reloading capabilities. It has three locking lugs that secure it in place and provide it with a short 60-degree bolt throw.

Features include a high-gloss walnut stock with a straight comb. The barrel is relatively long compared to other A-Bolt models at 26″ and free-floats, so the stock won’t interfere with the barrel’s action. On the end of the barrel is a crown, which helps maintain barrel harmonics so the rifle doesn’t vibrate too much and throw off the round’s trajectory. It uses Browning’s Top Tang Safety, which places the safety on the back of the pistol grip or where the action-hand’s thumb naturally falls. The feature also locks and unlocks the bolt. And it has an adjustable four-pound trigger.

Browning recommends the Browning A-Bolt Hunter, Left-Hand for hunting or leisure shooting.
