Browning X-Bolt Western Hunter, MAX-1 XT, 7mm Rem Mag

A superbly accurate straight shooter, it is lightweight and easy to carry and rugged enough for anything the hunting environment can throw at it. Features a 26-inch free-floating, hand-chambered, matte blued barrel with target crown and a composite Realtree® MAX-1 XT camouflage with palm swell and Dura-Touch Armor coating to stand up to the elements out in the field. The RMEF logo is proudly featured on the grip cap.

Powered by award-winning Crosscentric™ Cam system, and featuring the all-new 3D Damping technology, the TRIAX is built on a 28-inch ATA platform with a 6-inch brace height and delivers up to 343 feet per second for the ultimate stealth rig. The design and location of the new Enhanced Harmonic Stabilizer (EHS) diminishes all three paths of that residual vibration, drastically reducing post-shot noise and virtually eliminating felt recoil. This new location also transfers weight in front of and below the grip for a lower center of gravity, resulting in increased stability and easier aiming. The TRIAX is a compact, maneuverable bow that’s deadly accurate and insanely quiet. It is the quietest, most vibration-free bow Mathews has ever built.
