Among the new bolt-action rifles on display at SHOT Show 2015 is a new entry from the folks at Winchester Repeating Arms, officially named the XPR. The new rifle represents an "entry level" addition to the company's line.
The rifle features Winchester's M.O.A. Trigger System, which the factory sets at 3½ pounds. 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. The receiver is constructed from chromoly steel barstock that is precision machined and through-hardened during heat-treating. The ejection port is oversized to make for a more reliable ejection and easier access. The bolt has a short 60-degree lift for improved scope clearance when cycling.
A 24" barrel version of the XPR will be offered in .270 Win. and .30-06. The 26" barrel model will be available in .300 Win. Mag. and .338 Win. Mag. It'll ship with an MSRP of $549.99.
