Excellent review!
Personally I just don't see buying this rifle when the abolt or xbolts are not even $100 more.
The binding issue I've seen a lot in cheaper rifles and i like to use a small amount of Grease.

I have found grease and guns don't mix. The price difference between the AB3 and the Xbolt was about 340.00. Both composite stalkers. The AB3 is the lower end rifle. That's what I found at my local store.

Grease works excellent with manually operated weapons.

Grease is a dirt magnet I have found. My local store doesn't have a web page, so can't check to see if my memory was working. However a quick Cabela's check has the X Bolt Composite Stalker @999.99 and the AB3 Composite Stalker @659.99. The X Bolt at my local store was 950 I think. AB3 were on Sale before Xmas at 499.

In your link the top AB3 has a scope, rings and mount included in the price if your comparing one gun to the other. When you handle the two, the X Bolt is a much better gun. That's just what I have found.

Yeah the one does come with a scope and a Nikon too! That happened to be the website I was visiting today after watching his review. You're correct about the dirt magnet part!
