Already well-known for their line of shotguns, Escort has added a new bolt-action rifle to its firearm lineup. Chambered in .22 Long Rifle, this magazine-fed bolt gun would make for a great small-game hunter, trainer or just all-around pinker. Easy to maintain, the receiver and barrel are of hard-chrome-plated steel alloy, to resist rust and corrosion. The smooth chrome-plated bolt, meanwhile, moves with a free precision.
To load, the rifle includes both five- and 10-round magazines, constructed from a lightweight-but-durable polymer with a stainless steel follower. The barrel is threaded with a protective cap, and ready to accept a variety of muzzle devices. Mounted studs, meanwhile, are sling ready.
The Escort .22LR has several stock options available. The first option is Turkish walnut, with a fish-scale textured grip area and a recessed magazine well. It also boasts a Hatsan DuoTex buttpad for easy shouldering. The second option is a synthetic, with features textured 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.
