2022 SHOT Show Special – A truly innovative 22 LR autoloading rifle. The precision button-rifled barrel has 1/2"x28 suppressor-ready threads and is protected by a durable Gray Perma-Cote finish. Composite upper receiver assembly is molded in a matching Gray color and features an integrated Picatinny optics rail. Molded polymer stock with front and rear sling eyelets, Picatinny rail on underside of forearm (includes rail cover) and TrueTimber® VSX camouflage finish.
You have not seen, nor held, nor shot anything like the autoloading Wildcat™ rifle. Winchester Repeating Arms® has been building legendary rimfires for more than a century and the Wildcat builds on our legacy of innovation. The Wildcat wasn't designed to be another "me too 22," this rimfire autoloader brings a whole new level of value and performance.
The Wildcat doesn't just look different, it is different. Through the extensive use of tough polymers and modern design principles, the Wildcat has a number of features you just don't see with other rifles. Like a centerfire rifle, the Wildcat is a striker-fired design – not hammer fired – for improved trigger performance with faster locktime and a lighter pull weight. A hemispherical firing pin offers improved reliability with rimfire ammunition.
The lower receiver assembly contains the trigger group, reversible safety and bolt assembly and is easily removed for service with the push of a button. With the lower receiver assembly removed, the bore can be cleaned from the chamber end. The polymer upper receiver assembly features an integrated Picatinny rail for optics. Dual, ambidextrous magazine releases and easy to reach bolt lock and release buttons make operation easy.
The Wildcat features a durable, 10-round polymer magazine. The rotary design is reliable, easy to load and has a bolt stop that locks the bolt back after the last round has been fired. The Wildcat also accepts magazines that fit 10/22® rifles.
A wide range of shooters will appreciate the comfortable fit of the tough polymer stock. The lightweight stock design also contributes to the approximately four pound weight of the Wildcat. The steep grip angle improves finger-to-trigger reach. Need a little extra length of pull or height added to the comb for optics? A length of pull spacer that adds 3/4" to the stock is available, as is a clip on cheek riser that raises your cheek 1/2".
