    Wanted to Buy

    Hi Guys
    Ive decided to purchase an X bolt in .280 but hit a snag the other day when the local dealer said he doesn't have one and it would be a long time before he could get one, i got in contact with Gun City who said 4 to 6 months wait.
    So has anybody seen one at their local shop on the off chance? I dont mind waiting but id rather get it sooner than later.

    Cheers
    Mal

    You should be able to get a 270.

    Giles at Taihape Sports told me he can get XBolts in March. Give him a call. He does a good deal too.
    Hunting & Fishing in Blenheim have got a few. Not sure what calibers.

    Fair enough. 280 is a great cartridge for NZ hunting. Good luck.
    Are you after stainless?

    Yeah stainless Stalker, they are a cracker gun IMHO feel great and seem to just fit when you bring them up.

    Get hold of the NZ agents, think it may be Cameron's, they are bringing them in all the time. You will need to put it through your local gunshop tho. Or try John @ Ashburton Firearms, 03 3088498, he will bend over backwards to get you one asap. The problem we have now is that there are a number of retail outlets importing direct [bloody H&F!] and if it doesnt fit in with their order system, they cant be bothered to make the effort. Good choice of rifle, good calibre, hope it all comes together real soon.

    I walked into a gun shop a few weeks ago and picked up a browning xbolt for the first time. I had no intention of spending any money but it was just such an awesome rifle to hold and came up perfect, not to mention quite light. Highly rate them, by far the most ergonomic and all round awesome factory rifle I have picked up

    That is the exact answer that should be given every time someone asks what rifle to buy.
    If it feels good then it sure as hell is going to shoot good

    Its a shame most importers only bring in such a limited range of calibers, except for Tikka, too bad about all the cheesy plastic parts on them.

    You just want to be like me...


    When you get one, you'll be able to load all of my ammo for me
    Happy likes this.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.
