Left-hand shooters now have three models of left-hand X-Bolt rifles to choose from in the new Browning X-Bolt rifle line. These new rifles have the same innovative features as the popular right-hand models.
The three new left-hand models include the X-Bolt Medallion, X-Bolt Hunter and X-Bolt Micro Hunter.
The Medallion model has a steel engraved receiver with a blued finish. The barrel also has a blued finish and is free floated in the stock. The stock is a gloss finished checked walnut with a rosewood fore-end cap.
The Hunter model steel receiver and barrel have a low-luster blued finish. The stock is a satin finished checkered walnut.
The Micro Hunter model has the same finish on the metal and wood as the Hunter model but the stock is sized for a smaller framed shooter and barrel lengths are shorter.
Each of the new left-hand models have a steel receiver that is drilled and tapped for the X-Lock scope mounting system. The bolt action has a 60â—¦ bolt lift; a popular Browning design. The Feather Trigger is easily adjustable to give the shooter a clean, crisp trigger. The detachable rotary magazine lines up each shell in the middle of the magazine for positive, consistent feeding. An Inflex Technology Recoil Pad reduces felt recoil and muzzle climb. All three left-hand models are available in a number of popular short and long action calibers.
