Technology. Since Winchester last introduced a new bolt-action rifle design a half-century ago huge advances have been made in metallurgy, materials and manufacturing processes. At Winchester Repeating Arms, our engineers were tasked to design a rifle that capitalized on these cutting-edge technologies and create a high performance bolt-action that was tough, reliable and accurate. The result is an innovative rifle that meets the performance expectations of today’s demanding hunters.
Rain, snow, sleet or mud — you name it and the XPR can handle it. It’s a rugged, no-nonsense game-getter that will put meat in your freezer for many years to come. Most of all, the feature-packed XPR bolt-action rifle embodies the lasting quality you’ve come to expect from Winchester Repeating Arms.
Creating a Superior Trigger System. How do you obtain a light, crisp, clean trigger pull? A trigger that will make all the difference in how accurately you can shoot? We believe this is found in the new XPRs advanced M.O.A. Trigger System. The trigger is the heart of every rifle. And the XPR has a lot of heart. Below is an outline of what sets the new XPR apart, point by point. If you are considering a new rifle, take the time to know this rifle inside and out.
Hardened steel components. The trigger housing and all internal components in the XPR™ rifle’s M.O.A trigger are constructed of polished and hardened carbon steel, with a blued finish for added durability and corrosion resistance
Safety features. Every XPR rifle has a TWO-POSITION SAFETY that’s convenient to operate with the thumb of your firing hand. The safety’s design fully retracts the trigger away from the actuator. Located just in front of the safety button, the BOLT RELEASE BUTTON allows the action to cycle unfired cartridges while the safety is on. The COCKING INDICATOR on the bolt shroud gives you both a tactile and visual reference of the rifle’s cocked/uncocked condition.
