A-Bolt’s comeback


Browning A-Bolt rifles are back at 2011 prices for 2012 on a special build commissioned by Winchester Australia as demand in Australia continues despite the factory having officially superseded the rifle.

Hunter, Composite Stalker and Stainless Stalker models will all be available for $920, $880 and $1040 respectively, covering a large range of calibres.

Hunters will arrive during July and August in .22 Hornet, .223, .22-250, .243, .270, .308, .30-06, .300WM, .300WSM and .338WM.

Composite Stalkers in .22-250 are here now, with .223, .243, .270, .308, .30-06 and .300WSM due in July and August.

The Stainless model is here now in .223, .325WSM and.375H&H (left and right handed), while .243, .270 (left as well), .308, .30-06 (including left-handers), .300WM, .300WSM and .338WM are due in July and August.

Winchester is promoting the A-Bolts primarily on the budget-priced rifle’s many strengths, particularly the fact it is made in three action lengths, super-short, short and long.

“This bespoke philosophy means the rifle is built around a particular calibre from the beginning unlike competitor products such as Tikka which are all built on the same action length,” Winchester says.

A-Bolts also feature a 60° bolt lift, three locking lugs, tang-mounted safety catch and a detachable magazine mounted in a drop floor plate which allows for easy single- or multi-round loading.

They’ve also developed a reputation for good hunting accuracy.

Only limited numbers will arrive in coming months, so Winchester is encouraging buyers to place orders with dealers, and reminding us that the three-year warranty only counts if you purchase from an official Winchester dealer.
