    Browning t bolt .22 and hmr sporter composit

    I've got two of these , one in each calibre. Now that I've had them for 8 months and now that the rabbits are slowing down a bit thought I'd do a review on them.

    firstly they are a small and light gun with a lop of 13.5 inches and an unscoped weight of just over 4Lbs. They also have a relatively heavy trigger pull and as a result you will need to learn how to shoot this rifle at distance.

    The bolt is a straight pull design and comes in left handed too. It's extremely quick to operate and is great for fast fire bunny bashing out of a truck.

    And I think this is where this rifle excels over its rivals . Yes it is light with a puny stock and he trigger is heavy but these can be fixed but it's the inherent speed and ease which which it can be used from a truck that makes it a better choice for me.

    I do a lot of rabbit shooting at night from a truck. Because it's light, short and has a flush magazine the t bolt is Easy to manuver . And because it has a tang safety , a straight pull and back up mag in but of the stock you are never left fiddling for anything , it's all there for you exactly where it should be.

    It's accurate too and I've taken shots out to just over 130 yards on hare with the hmr and bunnys out to 70 yards with the .22lr.

    I think in time I will probably fiddle with the triggers and add some weight to the stock but I am happy with them and as an out and out hunting rifle the are superb. Buy one you won't regret it..

    I like my .22 Tbolt. Its as accurate as my CZ and a lot lighter to carry around. Still a bit stiff at the mo but hopefully it will ease up a bit on the bolt.
    I altered the trigger pull just by removing a lip where the spring sits so its now sitting flush with the housing.

    Did the trigger mod make much of a difference ?

    I think so but havent got anything to measure the pull.
    I used a hot Stanley knife blade to cut the lip off. When you back off the adjuster screw the lip stops the spring from fully unwinding.

    Thumbs up

    Ok thanks that's good to know, I presume that the trigger group is fairly easy to take apart?

    yes, its all plastic and unclips. Security foil seal tape to undo. Pretty naff really considering its made by Browning and Miroku. Usual polish of sears helps to smooth the action out a bit.
