L.P. Brezny reviews the Winchester XPR Rifle and why it is not the tried and true bolt action Model 70 Winchester.
U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Without question the modern firearms industry has been greatly uplifted by the sheer fact that manufacturing methods and systems have pushed the advancement of the modern rifle well beyond what was ever thought possible several decades ago.
The short form here is that today the gun buyer can get one pile of fire stick for his or her hard earned dollar.
Enter Winchester firearms and the new turn bolt XPR design. What stands out first and foremost is that the new Winchester bolt action rifle has moved well away from any other previous standard regarding component design.
While some would call this the advancement of the tried and true Model 70 Winchester, I say, being a proud owner of several 70’s, that nothing could be further from the truth. The XPR rifle is not a Model 70, but in its own right a very different product unto itself.
