Chain Stores are a terrible place to buy quality firearms, I would definitely avoid them at all costs.

What ever you are looking for - you can find at Grice Gun Shop in Clearfield PA.

A little out of the way - a lot less to pay!

Pennsylvania's largest gun shop.

Gunsmith on site

Lowest prices you will find anywhere on a new gun!

You have been fed a complete total line of BS. All the manufacturers will be coming out with some new items without doubt but Browning is far from out of business and most certain is not dropping all past and current lines to come up with new ones for next year.

Now they will be drastically increasing prices just like all the other makers and maybe the store you were in wants to wait until the price increases to sell you a gun so they can make more profit. Dunno but if they told you what you told us they you got fed a lot of BS.

As in many other areas, there are gunshop folks who are helpful, friendly & knowledgable, and then there are those who either act as if they're doing you a favor or will say almost anything just to hear themselves talk.

Then too, we aren't always privy to what's going on behind the scenes.

Once upon a time, I was in an adult night-school business law class with the local area salesman for a major firearms distributor - who, co-incidentaly, was the rep for a few local FFL dealers I am very friendly with.

One of the dealers confided to me that his wholesaler (my classmate, unbeknownst to him) was avoiding taking some of his orders & giving various questionable excuses. (I didn't say he was a "good" salesman)

When I queried my classmate, he told me that a different local dealer - with a much higher volume of business than my other dealer/friend - had told him that he would stop doing business with his distributorship/house if the salesman continued to supply that particular (same town) competitor!
After conferencing with his boss, the salesman/distributor complied with the (underhanded, IMHO) request.

The new rifle is the X bolt. I was unaware that the A bolt was no more

I just love uninformed gun dealers.

I have seen the 2008 Browning dealer catalog and the Gold shotguns and A-Bolts are still in it.

Now, There are more models of the Silver than the Gold in 2008.

Looks like most if not all of the A-Bolts are available.

I don't doubt that as the years go by the A-Bolt models will gradually disappear, but not next year.
