We didn’t hold back when designing the X-Bolt Speed. This is a true mountain-style rifle with the features that send it straight to the top of the peak for hunters looking for proven performance and accuracy.

The sporter contour barrel is fluted and comes in standard barrel lengths to keep the rifle light, maneuverable and easy to carry. The muzzle is threaded M13x0.75 to accept the included radial muzzle brake or thread protector cap. For additional performance, the Browning Recoil Hawg Sporter muzzle brake can also be added. The barrel is free floated for consistent accuracy.

The Cerakote Smoked Bronze finish is applied to the action and barrel and offers metal protection that is better than traditional bluing or stainless steel. The lightweight composite stock features the concealment of Browning OVIX camo. This pattern offers excellent concealment in a variety of terrain and environments.

Features:

  • Versatile Browning OVIX Camo®
    • Browning OVIX™ camouflage is a unique configuration of shapes and natural colors that displace the hard silhouette of the human shape. This innovative design creates a consistent pattern of concealment that is suitable for a variety of environments. The optimized color pallet creates high contrast break-up at close range. At greater distances the shapes blend together to create a natural mirage. The combination of atmospheric optics with white light color scattering creates the essential background for this revolutionary camouflage pattern.
  • Cerakote Finish
    • When compared to the traditional blueing process, premium Cerakote finishes offer the combination of increased durability, corrosion resistance and abrasion resistance.
    • Cerakote Smoked Bronze finish protects better than traditional bluing or stainless steel
  • Fluted, sporter contour barrel for the ideal blend of accuracy and weight savings
  • Threaded radial muzzle brake reduces felt recoil (thread protector included)
  • Weather-resistant composite stock
  • Barrel Accuracy
    • The X-Bolt is free-floated by bedding the front and rear of the action for stability and to help maintain barrel to stock spacing for consistent accuracy. A recessed muzzle crown helps protect the rifling from damage.
  • Feather Trigger
    • The X-Bolt’s new three-lever Feather Trigger provides a clean, crisp pull with no take-up or creep and minimal overtravel.
  • X-Lock
    • X-Lock scope mounts feature an all new four screw per base design that replaces the traditional two screw system. The benefits are obvious, with the bases being secured at all four corners.
  • Inflex Technology
    • This recoil pad has proprietary construction and material to promote a directional deflection of recoil forces, pulling the stock comb away from your face to reduce felt recoil and muzzle climb.
  • Bolt-Unlock Button
    • The bolt unlock button works in conjunction with the top-tang safety to provide an added measure of safety during checking and unloading of the chamber.
  • 60° Bolt Lift
    • The bolt unlock button works in conjunction with the top-tang safety to provide an added measure of safety during checking and unloading of the chamber.
  • Rotary Magazine
    • An all new detachable rotary magazine is incorporated into the X-Bolt. Constructed from a durable lightweight polymer, the magazine is designed to feed cartridges directly in-line with the bolt.

A New Benchmark in Bolt-Action Design

The bolt-action rifle was forever changed with the introduction of the Browning X-Bolt. The X-Bolt builds on the proven successes of past Browning rifles, and adds numerous improvements that place the X-Bolt at the top of any side by side comparison. Most notable are the adjustable three-lever Feather Trigger™ system that offers the best feel on any Browning rifle ever and our proprietary barrel manufacturing systems which produce barrels recognized for their custom-class accuracy.

Barrel Accuracy: The X-Bolt is free-floated by bedding the front and rear of the action for stability and to help maintain barrel to stock spacing for consistent accuracy. A recessed muzzle crown helps protect the rifling from damage.

Feather Trigger: The X-Bolt’s new three-lever Feather Trigger provides a clean, crisp pull with no take-up or creep and minimal overtravel.

X-Lock Scope Mount:X-Lock scope mounts feature an all new four screw per base design that replaces the traditional two screw system. The benefits are obvious, with the bases being secured at all four corners. Securely mounted optics are essential to the accuracy and precision of any rifle. To ensure the new X-Bolt rifle has the most stable mount possible, it features the X-Lock scope mounting system. The X-Lock system uses four screws per base, replacing the traditional two-screw system. The benefits are obvious, with the scope bases being secured at all four corners rather than only held at the center of the base. This allows for more accurate placement of the bases on the receiver. This revolutionary X-Lock system holds the base tighter to the rifle than ever before.

Inflex Technology: This recoil pad has proprietary construction and material to promote a directional deflection of recoil forces, pulling the stock comb away from your face to reduce felt recoil and muzzle climb. The new Inflex Technology recoil pad is the most comfortable, effective pad available. That’s because Inflex Technology is more than a mass of recoil absorbing material, the innovation is engineered into the pad. Underneath the material, an internal skeleton has been designed using the concept of directional deflection. When a Browning with the Inflex recoil pad is fired, the pad collapses, but instead of simply moving to the rear, directional ribs pull the comb down and away from your face for even greater shooting comfort and faster follow-ups.

Bolt Unlock Button: The bolt unlock button works in conjunction with the top-tang safety to provide an added measure of safety during checking and unloading of the chamber. It works in conjunction with the top-tang safety to provide an added measure of safety during checking and unloading of the chamber. Conveniently located on top of the bolt lever, the bolt unlock button allows the bolt to be unlocked and opened with the safety in the on safe position. The safety blocks the trigger sear and features a firing pin block for added safety. This feature is likely one of the most understated and under appreciated of Browning features until you actually use it. Then it becomes an integral part of the use and operation of your rifle.

60° Bolt Lift: Short 60° bolt lift is fast cycling and allows you to work the bolt quickly without the scope getting in the way. A 60º bolt is something you want. Many competitors’ rifles incorporate a 90° bolt lift that is not only slower and cumbersome but places the bolt near or on the rifle’s scope, making the bolt more difficult to operate. The 60° bolt lift has been a hallmark of Browning bolt action rifles for over three decades.
The comfort and convenience of the added clearance between an open bolt and a large scope cannot be overstated. You will appreciate it.

  • Short 60° bolt lift is fast cycling and the hand easily clears the scope.
  • The bolt is machined from solid steel bar stock for strength and custom rifle precision.
  • Three locking lugs provide exceptional bolt strength.

Rotary Magazine: An all new detachable rotary magazine is incorporated into the X-Bolt. Constructed from a durable lightweight polymer, the magazine is designed to feed cartridges directly in-line with the bolt, instead of offset as with traditional leaf-spring magazines. They are distinguised by the fact that the cartridges make a circular path as the move from the “bottom” of the magazine to the top position. The advantage of a rotary magazine, versus one which offsets every other round to the right and left it that the cartridge is always presented perfectly in the middle. There is no left/right bias similar to a single stack magazine. An ergonomic magazine-mounted release lets the magazine rotate directly downward and into your hand. The magazine sits flush with the bottom of the rifle for a sleeker appearance. Additional magazines can be kept loaded and carried in your pocket or pack for easy access.
