The Browning X-Bolt Eclipse

The Browning X-Bolt Eclipse is possibly the closest thing you can buy to a custom made rifle off the shelf.

The new Browning X-bolt eclipse is a new variation on a tried and trusted product with some major improvements. The trigger system is now the super feather trigger that comes in all new X-bolt rifles and makes it much more sensitive and crisp to fire. The rifle comes in .243, .308 & .30-06 and currently only in right handed but to fire it as a left hander is ok.

Browning have worked on developing a new stock for the X-Bolt and they have done a truly wonderful job here, with a true thumbhole laminated finish that would put most custom stocks to shame. The rifle mounts perfectly and your head mounts to the exact same position every time because of the Monte Carlo cheek piece.

We tested the X-Bolt eclipse in .308 and using Winchester ammo the accuracy was fantastic with sub ½ inch groups at 100 yards. The rifle with a scope and moderator is light enough for hill stalking or evening being on your should all day in the woods. As a package the X-Bolt eclipse with its almost custom stock, detachable magazine and screw cut barrel is exceptional value for money at around the £820 mark.
