Winchester Wildcat?



Log in to see fewer ads
Hardly any mention of these on the net from private owners with the exception being magazine writers who seem to have all of them.

From what I’ve read, this one is a winner. Is this another gun that Winchester, (and other brands), hypes but won’t be in the pipeline for a year or two?

I know these were just announced at the 2019 Shot Show but I don’t see them for sale anywhere.

Here ya go...….

Reviews say the rifle is averaging 2" groups at 50 yards, nothing to write home to mother about.

Wildcat is an old promotional name Winchester has used. It's about as good as federal champion and usually a bit better than thunderbolt.

They are referencing the new Winchester Wikdcat rifle. Not to be confused with the ammo and bolt action rifle of the same name. The "newest" Wildcat is a semi automatic rifle in .22LR that uses Ruger 10/22 magazines and is priced in the $250 range.

And while 2" groups from a sub $300 rifle sounds great to me, I'm glad someone is introducing new products to the market

I disagree but to each their own. I like everything about it and especially it’s features and light weight.

No matter as I’m not allowed to have it as my “Daddy State” California says no! Please, no “move away” posts as I’ve heard it all before. I live rural on the side of a beautiful mountain in a beautiful cabin with no close neighbors and far away from the maddening crowds.

I’m glad I bought most of my firearms when this was still a free state.
