The next generation in Browning's legendary A-Bolt line maximizes accuracy and performance by focusing on improving quality down to the last detail. Button-rifled barrel is triple-checked for straightness and then air-gauged to ensure a consistent diameter throughout the bore's length. Every AB3 barrel is individually finished with a hand-reamed chamber for tighter tolerances and more precise headspace. Barrel's target-type Crown enables the uniform release of gas as the bullet exits the muzzle, helping prevent any unwanted shift in trajectory. Crown is recessed to protect it from accidental impact damage that can degrade accuracy. Free-floating barrel eliminates contact interference from the fore end, enabling the barrel to perform consistently and accurately to reach its full potential. Mount your scope close to the center of the bore using the precision-machined standard-length steel action to minimize the offset between the bore centerline and optical centerline. Fast 60° bolt lift keeps your thumb and fingers clear of the scope when cycling the action. Use the bolt unlock button to unload the chamber with the safety in the safe position. Top-tang safety allows easy accessibility without removing your firing hand from the stock. Generous trigger guard allows easy access, even while wearing gloves. Detachable, staggered box magazine has a rugged formed steel body and feed lips for added durability. Magazine has a four-round capacity. Innovative Inflex technology recoil pad uses directional deflection to pull the stock down and away from your face when firing to reduce felt recoil and flinching. Durable matte-blued steel finish on all external surfaces minimizes reflection and corrosion resistance. Pre-installed steel sling swivel studs for easy mounting of your sling or bipod. Receiver is drilled and tapped for scope mounts.
