Springfield Armory launched its Model 2020 Waypoint series in September 2020 with a collection of short-action rifles, and now the first long-action variants are available. These newest models are chambered for popular long-action cartridges such as .30-'06 Sprg., .300 Win. Mag., .270 Win., 300 PRC, 7 mm Rem. Mag. and 7 mm PRC.

“The release of the Model 2020 Waypoint marked a new era for modern bolt-action rifles from Springfield Armory,” said Steve Kramer, vice president of marketing for Springfield Armory. “Building on this tradition are these new long-action variants, bringing new levels of performance and power to hunters and shooters.”

Like the original short-action series of guns, these long-action Model 2020 Waypoint rifles are manufactured in the United States and are built to tight tolerances in order to deliver on the company's .75 m.o.a. accuracy guarantee. The Model 2020 action is machined from pre-hardened stainless steel and treated with a Cerakote finish. The design uses an integral recoil lug and features EDM-cut raceways. Dual cocking cams make it easy to operate the 90-degree bolt handle, and a removable knob means owners can add a bolt knob of their choice.

Paired with the action is a free-floated, carbon-fiber-wrapped barrel that makes use of "subsurface fluting" to further reduce weight and promote cooling. A more traditional fluted stainless-steel barrel can also be had on the long-action models. Each rifle is equipped with a TriggerTech Field trigger, which can be adjusted from 2.5 to 5 lbs.

The barreled action sits inside an AG Composites carbon-fiber stock, which is hand-laid and pillar-bedded. Adjustable and standard models of the stock are available, and each features QD mounts and M-Lok slots. Available finishes include Ridgeline or Evergreen camouflage. The long-action Model 2020 Waypoint rifles will retail from $2,173 to $2,670, depending on options selected. For more information, visit springfield-armory.com.
