Winchester Repeating Arms introduces its first new bolt action rifle design since half a century ago at the 2015 edition of the Shot Show. The Winchester XPR is an innovative rifle that takes advantage of all the metallurgy, manufacturing processes and materials that have advanced in the last 50 years to build a rugged centerfire hunting rifle that is both reliable and accurate.

The XPR uses a injection polymer stock, with textured panels and a matte finish: the recoil block is embedded in the stock that presents flat profile interface pads to avoid flex and twist when firing. The stock also features an Inflex Technology recoil pad, to protect the shooter from felt recoil.

The CrMo steel bolt features a three front locking lug design and the full diameter bolt body is coated with Nickel Teflon.

The barrel and action is built using Chrome Moly steel, and the barrel is precision button rifled: a thermal stress relieving process is applied to each barrel once machined to ensure accuracy.

Headspacing is precisely obtained using a barrel nut during manufacture, which also keeps the entire barrel/action assembly accurately aligned even after long shooting sessions at the range or in the field. The barrel is free floating over the stock, and the muzzle features a recessed target-style crown to increase accuracy and also protect rifling. The heat-treated and hardened CrMo steel action features a large ejection port for reliable ejection and easier access feeding single rounds by hand. The action is fitted to the stock using oversized hex screws torqued to insure maximum accuracy. The receiver is drilled and tapped for large 8-40 screws before heat treating, insuring that even the largest and heaviest hunting riflescopes can be mounted securely.

The magazine is a single stack, light polymer design that holds three rounds.

The bolt is also built using CrMo steel barstock,  and it features a three front locking lug design and is through hardened during heat treatment. A short 60 degree lift improves handling and scope clearance when cycling. The full diameter bolt body is coated with Nickel Teflon for smooth operation and corrosion resistance.

The one piece trigger guard and magazine frame is built using the same tough polymer of the stock; the single stack, light polymer magazine holds three rounds and is designed to feed the cartridge in a straight line to the chamber.

The XPR features a three lever trigger system, that is fully adjustable for overtravel and pull weight; the design insures a dramatic trigger feedback improvement thanks to a 2x mechanical advantage between actuator and trigger piece – essentially, the trigger travels only half of the travel of the actuator - virtually eliminating the perception of creep and overtravel.
