Winchester Repeating Arms continues our rimfire rifle revolution with the new Xpert bolt-action. The Xpert follows in the footsteps of it’s autoloading cousin, the Wildcat, with bold styling and innovative features that improve accuracy and performance at a price that will leave plenty of cash for ammo or optics.
When designing the Xpert, we put our sights on accuracy and added features to help you get the most from the rifle. Foremost is the new Rimfire M.O.A. Trigger. Like the trigger found in Model 70 and XPR rifles, the Rimfire M.O.A. Trigger is a three-lever design that with zero creep, zero take-up and zero-over travel for a light pull that breaks like glass. The Xpert also features a precision button-rifled barrel with a target crown and semi-match Bentz chamber. A hemispherical firing pin offers improved reliability with rimfire ammunition.
An adjustable rear sight and blade front sight are included, and the steel receiver is also drilled and tapped to accept scope mounts. The controls have been designed to be easy to use for most shooters. The bolt handle is extended, adding extra leverage to make operating the bolt easier. The Safety is tucked into the rear of receiver and within easy reach. Dual, ambidextrous magazine releases on the sides and bottom of the rifle give this shooter options and are designed to deliver the magazine into your hand. The Xpert uses the same polymer 10-round rotary magazine as the Wildcat and also accepts magazines that fit 10/22® rifles.
Neither range days nor rabbit hunts will ever be the same with an Xpert in your hands. The tough polymer stock keeps the weight of the Xpert to a low 4-1/2 pounds, making it easy to aim and carry for most users. The stock also features a steep grip angle that improves finger-to-trigger reach. Need a little extra length of pull or height added to the comb for optics? A length of pull spacer that adds 3/4″ to the stock is available, as is a clip on cheek riser that raises your cheek 1/2″.
