By Press Release
Morgan, Utah - Browning has added twelve new offerings to their T-Bolt rimfire rifle line that are sure to please left-hand shooters. All the new models incorporate the basic design of the T-Bolt rifle but with the bolt on the left side to accommodate those who shoot left handed.
Initially introduced in 1965 and discontinued in 1975, the T-Bolt was once again reintroduced in 2006 in right-hand models only. With improvements to the design including materials and manufacturing methods, now lefties can own the smoothest little system on the market. The new T-Bolt is more accurate, reliable, lighter and smoother operating than ever.
The T-Bolts straight-pull bolt cycles fast and locks up solid in the receiver that is machined from steel barstock. Receivers are drilled and tapped for scope mounts. Barrels are free floated and have semi-match chambers and recessed crowns. The three lever trigger design combined with a short travel firing gives a crisp break, quick lock time, and no travel take up. The trigger pull weight is adjustable with an external screw. A top tang safety is thumb operated without changing from a shooting grip.
