Browning Steps Up The Game With The New X-Bolt Pro Rifle

Browning has introduced a rifle that many are calling a “semi-custom production rifle.” What gives the X-Bolt Pro this classification is the level of specialized finishing touches and higher-end construction that is above the already top-tier X-Bolt family of hunting rifles.

The new Browning X-Bolt Pro has many features that set it apart from the average production rifle. Most notably, the stock is a second generation design that is constructed using a full 360° carbon fiber wrap with a compressed foam core. The stock is extremely lightweight, rigid and includes textured gripping panels, a palm swell and is coated with Cerakote Burnt Bronze finish for added protection.

The receiver of the rifle is corrosion-resistant stainless steel with the durable Cerakote Burnt Bronze finish applied. It is glass bedded into the stock for accuracy and is drilled and tapped for the solid X-Lock scope mounts.

The fluted barrel of the X-Bolt Pro is a lightweight sporter contour and features a new proprietary lapping process that provides consistent, superior accuracy, reduced fouling and easier bore cleaning. The barrel lapping also allows customers to avoid the need for a time-consuming break-in process. The muzzle of the barrel is threaded to accept the included muzzle brake or thread protector cap. This rifle is ready to go, right from the box.

The X-Bolt Pro has a classy looking spiral fluted bolt and enlarged fluted bolt knob that aids in sure operation. Like the stock, the barrel, bolt and bolt handle are coated with the Cerakote Burnt Bronze finish that looks great and mutes the color of the gun for better concealability from keen eyes.

Other Features:

Feather Trigger
Free-floated barrel
Bolt unlock button
60° bolt lift
Rotary magazine
Tang safety
Inflex recoil pad
Sling swivel studs
