    A-bolt owners

    After constantly singing the praises of the Browning A bolt I found myself seriously peeved tonight.
    For not only did I only see loads of shootable Fallow does and not the damn Roe buck which has been trashing loads of trees but also I saw something on my A bolt which made me curse.
    Bugger me if the stock isnt cracked from the bolt reciever to the trigger plate, and its a synthetic stock.
    Yes my rifles are tools of the trade but they arent abused and yes im well peeved off.
    So if you own one keep an eye on it.....Bell and Carson time I think grrr

    Is the stock the same as an X-Bolt?

    I had an A bolt for a couple of years- whilst the stock remained intact, the dammed thing would only have to hear it's raining and it would start rusting in the barrel - no matter what i did it rusted never-the-less.

    Swapped for Heym now and never looked back...

    I've had it from new for just over 2 years and no there wasnt any signs of it cracking, its a mystery and the gun shop had never seen one do it before

    If it's a Bell and Carlson , then it's some sort of composite and can be fixed.
    I've fixed a few weatherby vangaurd stocks.
    Can you take a picture of the crack and maybe highlight it?
