First Look: Winchester Wildcat 22 SR

The popular Wildcat 22 SR autoloading rifle from Winchester Arms, chambered in .22 LR, is now available in a new suppressor-ready model. The Wildcat SR features a 16½-inch barrel with a 1/2x28 TPI threaded muzzle that will accept most common rimfire suppressors and muzzle brakes. A knurled, threaded muzzle cap is also included to keep your threads safe when you are not using a suppressor. 

The rifle also has a rugged polymer upper assembly, lower receiver assembly and ambidextrous skeletonized buttstock for light weight and strength. The rear sight is adjustable for both elevation and windage and there is also a ramped post front sight. In addition to this, there is integral Picatinny rail for mounting your choice of optic to the Wildcat 22 SR.

The rifle also has molded-in sling eyelets for comfortable carry in the field plus a Picatinny accessory rail located under the forend tip to mount the accessory of your choice. The Wildcat SR, like the rest of the Wildcat line, uses a 10-round rotary magazine that has a polymer body, metal feed lips and also features last round bolt hold open. For added convenience, there is also dual ambidextrous magazine releases, spring-assisted magazine ejection and a reversible manual safety button.
