    Does anyone know how to remove the Butt Stock from a new Browning XT? It looks like a regular bolt head but I can't find anything to fit it.......is there some secret?

    Included in the box with my new XT was a very large hex key wrench that fit the stock bolt. No problems with stock removal so far.

    Some have a hex bolt and some have a slotted screw head. I have no idea why Browning has two different ones.

    The "normal" head for a Browning stock bolt is the slotted head. The hex head is used where you have a factory adjustable comb. I think that this is because the vertical posts for the adjustable comb stick down in the stock bolt hole, which would prevent you from accessing and turning a slotted screw. Mike
