Been doing a bunch of reading around on this rifle. Having not fired this rifle myself my views are from the experiences of others. The rifle is a great! According to the 20-30 reviews that I've read, some being more extensive than others. Ive been reading on the TC Encore, Weatherby Vanguard, Tikka T3, Marlin XL7, Browning X Bolt. Tons of good reviews on the net. Good luck to you on that.

I have shot the new x bolt in 270 and handled a couple 300 wins. If you like the A bolt (one of my favorite rifles) you will have no problem falling for the x bolt. Silk bolt! very fine trigger. all around very nice rifle! can't go wrong!

My buddy got one last year in 7mm mag. Great gun. I like that the long action magnums come with a 26" barrel (like a real magnum rifle should).
Sharps, the rifle that made the west safe for Winchester!

Real tractors have two cylinders and hand clutches.

My rifle is mine, it isn't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like.

I have had no luck at local gun shops finding one to handle. All the user reviews has tweaked my intrest to the point of having to own one.

I dry fired an X-Bolt at a local shop (with the owner's permission). The trigger is outstanding. I'd love to have one.

How many X bolt,s models does he have and what calibers ? I could make the 2-2 1/2 trip if he has what I am looking for .
