Winchester Introduces New XPR Rifle

Winchester Introduces New XPR Rifle

Winchester added a new entrant into the budget-priced rifle market at the 2015 SHOT Show with the introduction of its new XPR rifle.

The new Winchester XPR attempts to pack as many features and as much accuracy as possible into an affordable rifle platform for the hunter or recreational shooter. It incorporates a premium button-rifled, stress-relieved barrel with a target crown. The barrel attaches to the receiver using a barrel nut system for precise headspace control, which aids in overall accuracy.

The XPR utilizes a chrome-moly, three-lug bolt that has been coated in nickel-teflon for added lubricity and ease-of-use. The bolt offers a 60-degree throw for quick operation and fast follow up shots and can be easily field stripped if needed.


The rifle is equipped with the same MOA trigger found on Winchester's venerable Model 70 rifle. The three-lever trigger is factory set at 3 1/2 pounds with no takeup and zero creep and overtravel, but the trigger's pull weight and overtravel are also user-adjustable, with the pull weight varying from 3 to 5 lbs.


Other features of the new XPR include a composite polymer stock with a plate-style recoil lug and an Inflex recoil pad, a standard two-position safety, a bolt-unlock button for unloading the rifle with the safety activated, a set of steel sling swivel studs for attaching a sling and a 3-round detachable box magazine.

The new Winchester XPR will initially be offered in .338 Win. Mag., .300 Win. Mag., .270 and .30-'06. The rifle has a suggested retail of $549.
