All Business. No Nonsense. The X-Bolt stalker isn't flashy, but it is durable, accurate, simple and has all the elegant lines and curves you'll find on its "prettier" siblings.
Composite works harder. More and more hunters are turning to the composite firearms for many reasons. Probably the biggest is that they no longer want to bang up that pretty Walnut stock. The X-Bolt Composite Stalker is an excellent rifle choice for deer hunting in conditions where a hunter may not wish to take the traditional Walnut stocked rifle. The X-Bolt Composite Stalker's stock is made from tough, Composite material that can take a beating. Don't think it would be slippery, unattractive or uncomfortable to fire. The stock is textured for a secure grip from forearm to pistol grip. It also has a comfortable palm swell and a Dura-Touch Armor Coating over a flat, black finish.
Finished to perfection. The barrel, bolt and receiver are also finished in a flat, durable non-glare surface. This is a rifle with all the deluxe features of the X-Bolt family, but rugged enough for the demanding hard-core deer, elk and sheep hunters.
A very special rifle indeed. A maple stock harkens back a few years, but the beauty has always been the king of style. And this rifle is no exception. Take one of these to the range and you will have a lot of visitors. The beautifully figured AAA maple is a joy to look at. Maple is nothing like walnut -- it has a look of its own. And the way it contrasts with the various X-Bolt components is striking. Not to mention the classic rosewood fore-end and pistol grip caps that finish the look down to the last detail.
The perfect features too. RECEIVER – Steel; Polished blued finish; Engraved; Glass bedded; Drilled and tapped for scope mounts. BARREL – High gloss blued; Free-floating; Hand chambered; Target Crown. ACTION – Bolt-action; 60° bolt lift; Adjustable Feather Trigger; Detachable Rotary magazine; Top-tang safety; Bolt Unlock Button. STOCK – High gloss AAA maple with rosewood forend and pistol grip cap. FEATURES – Inflex Technology recoil pad; Sling swivel studs installed
The X-Bolt Stainless stalker is anything but high maintenance. With Dura-Touch Armor Coating and a matte Stainless steel barrel and action, it will endure punishing weather and terrain and still give you the throuroghbred performance you can expect from a Browning rifle.
Stainless is the big difference. This attractive and weather-resistant bolt action rifle is similar to the X-Bolt Composite model, except for a Stainless steel receiver, barrel and bolt. It has a comfortable palm swell for right-hand shooters, textured gripping surfaces for keeping your hands where they should be on the stock, even in wet and cold conditions. This model also features a deluxe Inflex Technology recoil pad and sling swivels. If you are looking for a hard core bolt action rifle that you can rely on, in the rugged areas and inclement weather conditions hunting deer, elk, varmints and the like, the X-Bolt Stainless Stalker is your rifle.
