Did you mean an A-bolt Stainless Stalker by Browning?
X-bolt is a new model from Browning. Its supposed to replace the a-bolt. Its basically and a-bolt with a better trigger, more screws holding the bases on, removable clip instead of a hinged floorplate, and a better recoil pad. I think the safety is changed so you can work the bolt while the safety is still on. Overall its the same action as the a-bolt with those changes.

AWWW, I guess I am out of the loop. I like my A-bolts. Own 3: 25.06, 280, and 338. I am looking at another in the 300 Win Mag. I like the tang safety. I also like the bolt locked with the safety on. I lived in Sitka, Alaska with the Brown Bears too many years. Always traveled with a round in the chamber. Saved my life once. The clips were a weak spot in my opinion, sometimes the bullets would not seat and stack well in the clip. God bless, Paul...<><
