For hunters that prefer the appearance and warmth of a wood stock, Winchester Repeating Arms has introduced a new Sporter model to the XPR® bolt-action rifle line.
The new rifle features a close-grained Grade I walnut stock with crisp checkering on the pistol grip and fore-end for a classic look and feel. A flattened fore-end profile provides added stability when shooting from sandbags or a rest.
At the heart of any accurate rifle is the barrel and the XPR Sporter does not disappoint. The top-quality chromoly steel barrel is button rifled and thermally stress relieved. A target-style crown protects the rifling. The action is precision bedded to ensure the barrel is free-floating.
The XPR Sporter comes in 12 popular calibers from 243 Win. to 338 Win. Mag. — including the 6.5 Creedmoor round. Barrel lengths are 22" for short action calibers, 24" for short magnum and standard long action rounds and 26" for magnum calibers.
The XPR Sporter sells for an MSRP of $599.99 and includes the following features:
- M.O.A. Trigger System
- Bolt unlock button
- Nickel Teflon™ coating on bolt body
