Default browning x-bolt micro hunter vs. micro midas

I'm thinking of buying my girlfriend one of these rifles in 7mm-08 I'm just wondering which would fit her better she is only 5'2 and weighs around 120lbs. If anyone has any experien ce with either of these I would like to hear your opinion

Not familiar with the x-bolt but I have the browning a-bolt stalker in the .270. Mine has the perforated BOSS on it and has the recoil of a .22... It's absolutley amazing how much the recoil is reduced to almost nothing.

My wife doesnt hunt, but that's what my children will shoot. The x-bolt may have that option.

Edit: Just saw that the BOSS is 400.00 extra and only available in the A-bolt. Wow, It's gone up in price.

Love my Browning, though!

Yea on the Browning website the description both say they ate good guns for women but the micro midas is a little shorter and lighter and is more for young kids as well and my girlfriend is pretty small

BOSS is Ballistics Optimizing Shooting System Lessens recoil, but makes it loud as hell.

Have you shot a .270 with a BOSS? Ok, .22 might be a slight exageration, but it's got to be cut in more than half. It will bust the eardrums of anyone standing next to me though.

I have the Browing 7mm X-Bolt. First gun for me and I LOVE it. Being female and scared of the kick I thought any gun would produce, I can say that I was so happy with this gun! I got it last year for christmas and killed 2 with it after that! Nothing to worry about at all! My first time shooting it (target practice) was a little intimidating, but after the first shot, it was all good! If you think she might let you use it, get ready! AINT GONNA HAPPEN!! Mine tried that with me! NO WAY!!! Get your own gun!
