Hey Guys,

I saw one of the new Browning T-Bolts in a shop. They look pretty nice.

I have never fired or operated one.

What are the pros and cons of the T-Bolts?

Thanks, Mannyrock

I like the T-bolts, but i have heard of trigger complaints. Seems there's plastic in it? and it's hard to make any changes in them.

My BIG complaint of them is, the LH models aren't completely left handed! They kick the empties to the right, and there's no excuse for it, as the "origional" T-bolts were/are real LH weapons!

Here's my "origional" LH T-bolt,



No plastic, and it kicks empties to the left as it should.

If Browning would get their act together, i would buy a new T-bolt in Win. mag., but i'm NOT going to pay browning price for a halfazz gun...

Pros and Cons of the T-Bolt?


Pros: Good speed, fantastic high-altitude performance, will outdive anything. Lots of firepower.

Cons: Expensive, thirsty, buggy & poor climb in early models, turbosupercharger on the R2800 requires a fair bit of maintenance.

I have a Belgian T-Bolt, so:

Pro: VERY accurate. Rapid operation. NO plastic - just steel/walnut.

Con: My shooting buddies keep asking to shoot it, 'steada their brand-x rifles. ;)

Howdy,
I hope your Belgians weren't built with salt-wood stocks like mine was. I found out the hard way and had to have it rebuilt. This was my NRA Junior program rifle. It still drives tacks, but looks a whole lot different.
I don't think the new one is that much of an improvement. What the market needed was a solid, accurate, adult-sized .22LR in LH and RH. I think it could have been done for less than $600.
