Rotary magazine


Several Browning firearms feature a rotary style magazine. The most famous is the Detactable Rotary Magazine on the X-Bolt. This is an all new detachable rotary magazine design that is incorporated into the X-Bolt from the first -- not as an afterthought.

Constructed from a durable lightweight polymer, the magazine is designed to feed cartridges directly in-line with the bolt, instead of offset as with traditional leaf-spring magazines, for a straight shot right into the chamber. An ergonomic magazine-mounted release lets the magazine rotate directly downward and into your hand. The magazine sits flush with the bottom of the rifle for a sleeker appearance. Additional magazines can be kept loaded and carried in your pocket or pack for easy access.


The T-Bolt rifle also incoporates a variation on the rotary magazine. In this case, a dual design allows a very trim magazine while still offering the maximum rounds practical.

The Tech-Term "Rotary magazine" is referred to in the following products:
