    Not Sure about the X Bolt questions. The medalist stocks are typically 22-30oz depending on the configuation you choose. I would recommend calling Stocky's Stocks at (561) 584-8500 they know everything there is about B&C and will help you custom order if need be. I have done a couple B&C Medalist custom orders through them and their customer service is awesome.

    I second this. I've been bugging Stocky's with questions lately in my quest for stocks and they have been pretty helpful. I also called Bell and Carlson and bugged them for info on medalist stocks and they were nice as well. I even called Winchester when they had noone there to help me and they told me they would get tech support to call me back....The following monday I got a call from Browning. The guy was really friendly and helpful and could probably answer your quiestion about the X-Bolt. But, I can tell you that from what I've seen, the X and the A are probably gonna be different. I know the floor plate between my 1993 A-bolt and the X-Bolts is way different. I'm not sure about the recievers.

    I did recently handle some X-bolts and to confirm....they are gonna be inletted differently than the A-bolt. My A-bolt has been hunted hard for a couple of decades+ and is a fine rifle, might I add. I haven't picked it up in a couple of years but I did the other day, and decided that I am gonna invest in it. I am gonna get it Cerakoted and put some new glass on it. A tangent I know, but I love my guns and might just love that one the most.
