My dealer informed me that the new Browning A-Bolt Medallion I recently ordered has been discontinued.  His distributors are telling him that Browning is updating the A-Bolt next year with a new trigger assembly among other changes.  Is this news or is this common knowledge in the gun trade?

First I've heard of it.  You might try calling Browning and asking them.

I believe they are going to use the same trigger as the new Winchester 70 when it comes out.

I think this may be the replacement for the A-Bolt: http://www.browning.com/products/catalog/firearms/eb_new.asp ?value=023b

 

It looks like Browning has gone the modern route with the stock design and has made the same (IMHO) mistake as Sako by trimming too much in the buttstock.  I also don't care for the look of the magazine - sort of like a Steyr look.

   Did Browning buy out Winchester? I went to this link yesterday and saw them listed together. Maybe this is old news but its this first time I seen anything about it.

Herstal, a Belgian concern owns Browning and FN.  FN will be manufacturing the new Model 70's in Columbia, South Carolina.

looks a little too " futuristic" for me.. I have a stainless stalker now and like its lines better. I wonder if the new trigger will 'drop in" to a current A-Bolt ?
