Looking for a Browning Abolt Long Range Hunter in 300ultra

The gun was a 2011 shot show gun. It has grey laminate stock with a stainless fluted barrel. If you happen to know of where one is, please let me know. Thanks

I actually called Browning about these a few months ago and they informed me the only ones that exist are those that were ordered at the shot show, they were a specail run deal and dont plan to make any more. I would keep an eye on gunbroker they may pop up

Re: Looking for a Browning Abolt Long Range Hunter in 300ultra

I don't understand Browning's logic on their Shot Show Specials. I called Browning looking for a stock for a X-Bolt Varmint Special and they said that they didn't make them but gave me the info for the company that did. I called the company that makes the stocks and they said that they had problems making the stocks and still hadn't done it production yet. What really confuses me is that I've seen a few Varmint Specials on sell in the local classifieds and they all had stocks, how's that possible if the stocks aren't even in production? hahaha

Good luck finding a Long Range Hunter cause they look freaking sweet. I just wish the average guy could find and buy their shot show special firearms.

Yeah the shot show guns are just crazy hard to get your hands on. I called a browning rep and they told me that some have shipped and gave me the names of stores that got them. I call the stores that they gave me and they tell me they haven't even got them yet... Oh well I guess this is a hopeless battle.

Guess today was my lucky day. Went to drop some deed meat off at the processor which is a pro shop as well. Low and behold they had the 300 ultra on the shelf. It is a fine gun. It is sitting in the safe now!!

That was quick! Why did it set you back? Can you take a few pics? I'd like to see it a little better than the Browning site shows.
