Looking at one of these in 6.5 creed. I like the longer 26" barrel but not sure about the muzzle brake. Anybody have a review on these guns?

I'm curious as well. I like the X Bolt, wonder what others' experience has been.

GREAT, ACCURATE, only drawback is if you can live with a 3.5# trigger, no aftermarket , yet/

my daughters x-bolt micro in 7mm-08 is a deadly, accurate, killer, the featherweight trigger breaks very clean. she loves it!!

I have the Xbolt Hells Canyon in 300 Win Mag. I have yet to sight it in but wanted to include that the muzzle break is removable AND they send a thread protector with the rifle.

I considered that same rifle but Buzzsaw is correct about the trigger. I ended up with a vanguard weatherguard in 6.5 CM. This trigger did not need any adjustments and the rifle shoots VERY well. Costs less too.

THIS is VERY interesting. I looked at the manual, and it seems to be an easy "drop in"...hummmmm

I did too. I'm sure I could install it, but I actually like the factory trigger on my White Gold Medallion in .270 Win. If I was to get an X-Bolt model more for long distance precision use I might consider one. cheers
