Thread: Browning A bolt ?

  1. #1

    Browning A bolt ?

    I handled one of these today and I was very taken with it's small size and low weight.

    I know the T bolt is more feature rich but the .223 A bolt was lovely in the shoulder.

    Anyone got any experience or comments ?

    Thanks for looking

    Had one for years in .270 for the Highland hills, its a pleasure to carry round all day as it is so lightweight. I've always shot 130g ammo through it and don't have any concerns about the recoil that some complain about even without a moderator. Great killing machine.

    They are really nice and handy, a crisp action that chambers and extracts with effortlessly, a chrome plated trigger and sear which is very smooth, and they are quite accurate. My son has a .308 Winchester synthetic. I have an A-Bolt .22 Gold Medallion, and am looking for a .223 to match it.

    I have an A Bolt Medallion in .243, love it, in fact I like it so much I've just bought a Euro Bolt in .270(same gun, just a different stock and bolt handle) can't wait for my variation to come back so I can pick it up, the .243 A Bolt is light, accurate, not ammo fussy and has a great mag design and tang mounted safety.

    Many thanks for the rapid and positive feedback

    I like light guns - that is, I like them better than a heavy gun when I have to lug one around all day

    With a moderator and Meopta scope it was still a featherweight...

    DONT START

    Have one of these in 243, its a gem does all that is expected of it, don't shoot lighter ammo weights but she digests most in the 75-100g range, cycles very smoothly, loves Remmington ammo, shoots 1 hole groups with the 75g & 95g accutips, handles well & puts up with being worked & getting dirty..
