I like the A-Bolt as well. Great fit and polish. I think you do not here alot about them because of the lack of after market parts.

    Resale value about like a Yugo is the main reason most shy away from them.

    "It seems like Browning makes good products. How come thier rifles don't seem to be very popular at all? "

    Those that have 'em, love 'em. Who cares about the rest?

    Had an A-Bolt in 7mm Rem Mag and never could get it to group closer than 2.5" @ 100yds. Tried Factory and Hand loads, nothing worked. Checked a neighbors 7MM Rem Mag A-Bolt and his would not shoot as good as mine. Sold mine and bought a Weatherby Vanguard in 7MM Rem Mag and with the same 160 Gr Nosler BT and H 1000, it shoots 3 & 4 shot Groups -.5" groups. Anyone would have a hard time giving me an A-Bolt, but the new X-Bolt seems to have been improved. Have shot several and the accuracy has improved tremendously. Not sold on them yet.

    There is a reason there are very few aftermarket parts. My builder did not work on them when he had his shop open. I have a friend who has one in 284 and it shoots pretty good for a factory rifle --- in the 1 inch range at 100 yards.
