Springfield Armory is stepping up its rimfire game with a new “heirloom quality” series of bolt-action rifles. With wood and synthetic-stocked options, the blued Model 2020 Rimfire in .22 LR is a “refined bolt-action rifle with all the quality and performance you’ve come to expect from Springfield Armory,” according to an SA news release.

For the Classic model, you can choose from four grades of satin-finished Turkish walnut, each offering classic style and craftsmanship with the degree of figure and grain to suit your style. The Classic barrels feature a “sporter contour for a day afield,” Springfield notes.

The Target model features a reinforced polymer stock you’ll recognize as closely related to the Model 2020 Waypoint. It comes in either black or sage with black webbing finishes and has a target-style configuration. It’s also suppressor-ready with a threaded barrel. 

All models come standard with dual sling swivels, a contoured rubber recoil pad, and Springfield’s .22-caliber 10-round rotary magazine, which is interchangeable with Ruger 10/22 mags. 

Dual cocking cams and a hard chrome bolt help the Model 2020 Rimfire outperform other rifles in its class, according to Springfield. The 60-degree bolt throw enhances speed and ease of use, and a threaded bolt handle allows for customization by the shooter. The rifles feature an interrupted Picatinny rail for mounting optics and a 20-inch free-floating barrel. At 13.45 inches, length of pull is optimized for handling and performance.

Springfield uses a Model 700-pattern adjustable trigger factory-set at 4.5 pounds. The action can be further customized as it’s designed to accept many aftermarket 700-pattern triggers.

Each configuration is guaranteed to shoot "1 inch or less at 50 yards with quality match-grade factory ammunition, in the hands of a skilled shooter." With a wide range of available options, Springfield expects the Model 2020 Rimfire to have quite a draw. 
“The appeal of a well-made rimfire rifle speaks to practically every shooting enthusiast,” Steve Kramer, Springfield’s Vice President of Marketing, noted in the release. 

MSRPs start at $434 for the Target model in black and top out at $1,099 for the Grade AAA Classic.
