Browning Xbolt Speed Ovix SR

Browning rings in 2022 with a new bolt-action rifle that is set up right from the factory for suppressor use, with the Browning X-Bolt Speed Ovix Suppressor Ready. Modeled after Browning's popular and successful Speed rifle line the new Speed SR rifles are largely similar, with exception to the fact that its barrel selections are 4" shorter than the standard models. This reduced length is meant to help keep the rifle's length manageable, even when using a suppressor.

The barrels are slightly belled at the muzzle to accommodate 5/8-24" SR threading, and comes with both a thread protector and a radial-style muzzle brake for those who wish to use the X-Bolt Speed SR unsuppressed. This results in a handy, shorter-than-normal rifle ideal for use in the brush. Other features of the match-grade barrels are a lightweight contour along with fluting for increased heat dissipation. Available barrel length are 18", 20" and 22", chambered for 11 different calibers including .223 Rem (18"), 6.5 mm Creedmoor (18") and .300 Win. Mag. (22"). 

The action features eight screw holes and mounting points for scope rings pre-machined in and is fed from a detachable five-round flush magazine. Both the steel barrel and action of the X-Bolt Speed SR are topped off with a Smoked Bronze Cerakote finish. The composite stock comes topped off with Browning's OVIX camouflage applied to help break up the rifle's outline in brush.

The Browning X-Bolt Speed Ovix SR has a retail price ranging from $1,379.99 to $1,459.99 depending on caliber selection. For more information on it and other Browning firearms, visit
