Looking for a rifle to take coyotes or prairie dogs at long range? You need a heavy barreled, accurate rifle when setting up for long-range shooting. This type of rifle is usually called a target or varmint rifle because of their heavy barrels which insure better accuracy. A heavy barrel causes the rifle to lay in the rest or on a bi-pod with much more stability. The X-Bolt Varmint Stalker bolt action rifle is just that kind of rifle. The heavy barrel also controls barrel whip, vibration and recoil, further enhancing accuracy. The Varmint Stalker also has a weather-resistant Composite stock with textured gripping surfaces and a Dura-Touch Armor Coating which allows you to hold on to the rifle without slipping or losing your grip. It's a very stable rifle with all of the deluxe X-Bolt rifle features.
- Heavy barrel causes the rifle to lay in the rest or on a bi-pod with much more stability, also controls barrel whip, vibration, recoil and barrel heating/cooling, further enhancing accuracy
- Durable matte finish reduces reflective glare
- Dura-Touch Armor Coating provides positive gripping surface that is both comfortable and easy to hold onto during all weather conditions
- Button-rifled barrel is triple checked for quality and individually hand chambered and air gauged to ensure consistency and accuracy
- The target Crown enables the uniform release of gas as the bullet exits the barrel, preventing a shift in trajectory. The Crown is recessed to protect it from accidental damage that degrades accuracy.
- Free floated barrel eliminates contact interference from the fore-end, enabling the superior barrel craftsmanship to perform consistently and accurately
- Drilled and tapped for X-Lock scope mounts that use four screws for each base to provide a rock solid optic platform
- Adjustable Feather Trigger minimizes the "human factor" by eliminating creep and take-up — providing a crisp trigger pull that "breaks like glass"
- Low profile action allows you to mount the scope extremely close to the center of the bore to minimize the offset between point of aim and Point of Impact
- 60° bolt lift keeps the thumb and fingers clear of the scope when cycling the action and allows the bolt to be operated in a smoother/quicker motion
- Top-tang safety offers easy accessibility without removing your firing hand from the stock. The shooter can quickly manipulate the safety, or verify the position of the safety, without losing your sight picture or cheek weld.
- Detachable Rotary magazine is built from tough polymer and is designed to stop forward movement of the cartridge by contacting the shoulder of the case rather than the tip of the projectile. This prevents bullet tip deformation and recoil induced bullet seating depth change.
- Bolt Unlock Button allows the bolt to be cycled with the safety engaged
- Innovative Inflex Technology recoil pad uses directional deflection to pull the stock down and away from the face to reduce perceived recoil
