Video—ARTV: Winchester XPR Rifle Review

posted on August 22, 2018
The Winchester XPR Rifle is Winchester's answer to the affordable bolt-action rifle category. Winchester combines concepts from the Model 70 with more efficient manufacturing processes to produce the XPR. The rifle includes a tubular receiver and a Savage-style barrel nut to attach the barrel to the receiver, resulting in very good headspacing. The bolt is round and oversized meaning there is full diameter contact the entire length of the receiver and it features a solid two-position safety and the adjacent bolt-release tab that allows the shooter to work the action with the gun on safe. Additionally, the XPR contains an MOA trigger, a detachable box magazine, polymer stock, and textured grip panels. The Winchester XPR is a new chapter in Winchester rifles, made in Portugal by Browning for Winchester Repeating Arms. Available in a multitude of calibers, it will cover most North American big-game hunting at an affordable price.

“Rifleman Review” video from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV, in which Mark Keefe takes the gun downrange.
