NRA Gun of the Week: Browning T-Bolt SPEED Rifle

by
posted on November 9, 2019
When it comes to American sporting rifles, turned-bolt bolt-action designs dominate the market. Browning Arms broke that mold in 1964, when it first introduced its T-Bolt rifle—a true straight-pull rimfire—though it took another 10 years for the company to catalog the design for consumers. Advancing to the modern era, the T-Bolt has received slight design changes, with the T-Bolt SPEED demonstrating the company's most advanced example. With a Burnt Bronze Cerakote finish on the barrel and receiver, and a polymer stock adorned in A-TACS AU camouflage, the rifle features a double-helix magazine with capacity for 10 rounds of .22 Long Rifle. The machined bar-stock receiver is mated to a  steel, 22” sporter-contour barrel, which features a polished chamber and match-grade fluting. Additionally, a user-adjustable trigger is included, along with space for a single additional magazine stored within the buttstock. To learn more about the Browning T-Bolt SPEED, watch our NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by American Rifleman’s Brian Sheetz.
