Winchester has joined Remington, Browning and other manufactures in offering an less expensive alternative to their flagship rifle. In Winchester's case the XPR is the value line (or entry level) to the legendary Model 70 bolt action rifle. The XPR will certainly be less expensive to manufacture and obviously has been designed to be a value line offering.
The Winchester XPR will be initially offered in 270, 30-06, 300 Win Mag and 338 Win Mag. The Long actions will have 24" barrels and the magnums 26" barrels. All will have 3 round detachable box magazines.
The XPR features Winchester's M.O.A. Trigger, a two-position safety and a cocking indicator. The XPR's three lug bolt has a 60 degree throw and is Nickel Teflon coated.
Like it's contemporaries, the XPR has the recoil lug in the synthetic stock and the barrel is freefloated and "thermally stress relieved".
The XPR has a detachable box magazine and bottom polymer? That is to say the trigger guard is plastic.
With a suggested MSRP of $550, expect the XPR to sell for around $475.
