The Sporter model has forced its way onto Winchester’s XPR line, adding a wood stock aesthetic for hunters who prefer a more traditional looking rifle.

The bolt-action XPR rifle line features a close-grained Grade I walnut stock paired with checkering on the pistol grip and foreend. Winchester says the look introduces a more classic feel. Boasting a chromoly steel barrel, the rifle’s barrel itself is button rifled and thermally stress relieved. In addition, the barrel is free-floated due to a precision bedded action. The XPR Sporter delivers a 22-inch barrel length for short action calibers, a 24-inch barrel for short magnum calibers as well as standard long action rounds and a 26-inch barrel for magnum calibers.

“For hunters that prefer the appearance and warmth of a wood stock, Winchester Repeating Arms has introduced a new Sporter model to the XPR bolt-action rifle line,” Winchester said in a press release.

Avaialble in 12 total caliber offerings, to include popular rounds like the .243 Win and 6.5 Creedmoor, the XPR Sporter is available with a MSRP of $599.
