U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- 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.

Features:

  • M.O.A. Trigger System
  • Bolt unlock button
  • Nickel Teflon on bolt body
  • Detachable box magazine
  • Close-Grained Grade I walnut stock
  • Perma-Cote matte black metal surfaces
  • Inflex Technology recoil pad

    1. Bummer, Winchester was always my favorite guns. I did not know they sold out to a foreign company. I was getting kind of interested in this rifle until I read that. Ring up no sale on the old cash register.

      1. Bought a model 70 in .458 Win mag a few years back. IT was just before Winchester sold out to FN. The gun was so bad Winchester ended up replacing it with another rifle. The replacement was almost as bad as the original so it was sent back, as well. Winchester was bought during that time and I was advised that it would take over a year to get my replacement rifle. When it finally arrived, it was a pretty nice rifle with lots of improvements over the original model 70’s. The barrel was marked ” Manufactured by BAC (Browning Arms Company) Ogden, Utah. The rifle shown in the photo looks more like a Browning than a Winchester. FN has made a lot of guns in Portugal over the years.
