Browning has announced the introduction of the AB3 bolt-action rifle for 2013. Designed to offer top-of-the-line accuracy at a value price, the AB3 will retail at $599.99.
The AB3 features a bolt lock override button that allows shooters to unload the firearm while leaving the top-tang safety in the on-safe position. The steel receiver has a matte blue finish and is drilled and tapped for scope mounts.
The rifle will be available in a Composite Stalker model in four calibers: .30-06 Sprg., .270 Win., .300 Win. Mag. and 7mm Rem. Mag. The composite stock is matte black and features textured grip areas. An Inflex recoil pad reduces felt recoil.
