In an ode to the scout rifle concept, Springfield Armory on Tuesday announced a new variant of the company's Model 2020 bolt-action platform. 

The Illinois-based company first debuted the 2020s last September with the Waypoint series of rifles offered in 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Win. and 6.5 PRC. The Waypoints offered a lot of great features such as Radial Brake muzzle devices, an adjustable TriggerTech trigger, a carbon fiber stock by AG Composites, AICS-pattern detachable magazines, and a 0.75-inch MOA accuracy guarantee. 

The Model 2020 Redline variants, offered just in 6.5 CM and .308, have a lot of the same features as the Waypoints but run a choice of a free-floated 16-inch or 20-inch carbon-fiber-jacketed barrel and a skeletonized Grayboe Trekker stock to deliver some very compact carbine-length rifles hitting the scales in the low 6-pound range.

Standard features on the 2020 Redline include a Grayboe Trekker vertical grip stock in an olive pattern with black webbing. The length of pull is adjustable from 13.25- to as much as 16 inches via spacers. It ships with a user-adjustable TriggerTech 700 trigger that can be tuned to break between 2.5 and 5 pounds.
The Redline uses three-round, AICS short-action magazines and comes complete with a removable Radial muzzle brake that has standard 1/2×28 TPI threading – making the rifles suppressor-ready. For those looking for a matching can, Springfield has teamed up with Silencer Central to offer all purchasers of Model 2020 Redline rifles a $200 "tax stamp credit" on Banish 30 suppressors. 
Springfield Armory describes the Redline series as "a lightweight and compact rifle ready for hunts where every ounce counts." As with the Waypoint line, they carry a 0.75 MOA guarantee. 


The MSRP on the new Model 2020 Redline is $2,299 across all barrel lengths and caliber variations.
