Bentonville, AR – -(AmmoLand.com)- Somewhat atypical from Escort, who is well-known for their unique shotguns, is a new .22LR bolt-action rifle. Simply named the 22LR, this magazine-fed bolt-action rifle will make a great hunter, plinker, and/or trainer at an excellent price. This rifle is simple to operate and easy to maintain. The hard chrome-plated steel alloy receiver and barrel resist rust and corrosion while the smooth chrome-plated bolt moves free-yet-precise. The safety mechanism is easy to operate, even for the most inexperienced shooters.

The rifle includes a 5-round and a 10-round magazine to suit a variety of hunting and plinking needs. The magazine bodies are made from a lightweight, durable polymer with a stainless-steel follower that is easy to load. The threaded barrel is fitted with a protective cap and is ready to accept a variety of popular muzzle accessories. Mounted studs are ready to accept a wide array of slings.

The Escort 22LR is available in two stock variants. The Turkish walnut stock offers fish-scale textured grip areas and a recessed magazine well. This stock also features Hatsan's DuoTex buttpad for consistent, easy shouldering. The synthetic stock model features texturing of the grip areas and a Picatinny accessory rail under the forearm. The buttstock also has a storage slot for a spare 5- or 10-round magazine and is equipped with a soft ventilated buttpad.

Where is this made? What is the accuracy at … say… seventy-five yards?

Those sort of prices for 22LR bolt action rifles still make me gag. I have to force myself to remember how much the dollar has been inflated and then they begin to make sense..
