Winchester Repeating


Winchester, known recently for their large slew of ammunition, and of bygone years as a premier designer and manufacturer of arms has been getting back into the firearms business. Winchester Repeating Arms, the firearms division of Winchster has announced the release of their latest rifle versions, the XPR Hunter.

Like the standard XPR rifles, the XPR hunter uses the Winchester Repeating Arms M.O.A. Trigger System, which Winchester claims to have ” zero take-up, zero creep and zero overtravel to help deliver outstanding accuracy.” Bold claims, which TFB would be happy to test.

Exposed metal surfaces are blued and the action beds to the Mossy Oak Break-Up Country stock through a steel recoil lug “inletted into the stock to prevent the receiver from flexing under recoil for more reliable accuracy.”

The safety is a standard two-position fare and the striker functions as a cocking indicator so the shooter can see the rifle’s condition easily. As an improvement on previous designs, the bolt can be removed while the thumb safety is in the safe position.

Retail is set at only $599.99, though I am sure street pricing will come in a bit less especially after the hunting season. Calibers are a-plenty, with most battle-rifle and many magnum cartridges available:

  • 243 Win
  • 7mm-08
  • 308 Win
  • 270WSM
  • 300 WSM
  • 325 WSM
  • 270 Win
  • 30-06 Sprg
  • 7mm Rem Mag
  • 300 Win Mag
  • 338 Win Mag
