Springfield Armory has debuted the 2020 Redline rifle, a lighter-weight counterpart to the full-sized 2020 Waypoint. Available in .308 Winchester and 6.5 Creedmoor, the rifle boasts a Grayboe Trekker stock for effortless portability. The Grayboe Trekker utilizes a uniquely shaped buttstock, which is designed to promote not just lightness, but also strength and rigidity. A distinctive cutout in the buttstock removes all material that is unnecessary in the field, while leaving all crucial components in place. Further, it has an adjustable length of pull for additional personalization, while a vertical grip yields a comfortable hand position. Finally, a bubble level is integrated into its rear just behind the action, so the shooter can ensure the gun is completely flat before releasing the shot.

Springfield 2020 Redline

While the gun is a downsized version of the original, the Model 2020 action—fed by an AICS-pattern magazine—remains unchanged. With dual locking lugs, the fluted bolt runs quick and true down EDM raceways. Extraction is similarly consistent and reliable, no matter the condition. Its 90-degree bolt handle sports a removable knob, while rearward travel is halted by a low-profile bolt stop. This cutting-edge action is mated to a free-floating BSF barrel, which is jacketed in a roll-wrapped carbon-fiber sleeve, and loaded under tension. All this fancy jargon means that 95-percent of the sleeve does not contact the barrel, leaving plenty of space for cooling gaps, which promotes consistency between cold- and warm-bore shots. The barrel under the sleeve is fluted to increase surface area, and of course reduce weight.

Accessories can be added to the Model 2020 Redline with ease. The barrel's factory-fitted muzzle brake utilizes 1/2x28 TPI threading, so it can be swapped out for a variety of suppressors. The stock, meanwhile, has three sling-swivel studs, so a bipod can be fitted in addition to a sling with relative ease. Lastly, a Picatinny rail with two recoil pins is mounted atop the action via a Remington 700 pattern footprint, to quickly attach an optic.
