Default New Winchester wildcat semiauto

Just saw the video. Looks pretty awesome to me. Love that it takes 10/22 mags. Just curious on everyone's thoughts.

thanks for the link. I was thinking a new rimfire wildcat cartridge, not just another 10/22 knockoff rifle

It looks very light. Too bad it isn't a break down rifle.

I like how you can clean it from the breech end. The action dropping out is also cool.

I'd buy one.

I agree, if it was a breakdown I would totally be sold. I do like the action dropping as well.

Claimed 4 pounds, msrp $250. Looks pretty good on paper.

Intriguing. I like the concept. The looks though, missed the boat. Looks too much like the A17 Savage imho. Not a fan of the skeleton rear stock. Should have done something cool like a storage hollow or a double mag holder or something. Maybe a wood option will come out.

I agree, but think they were trying keep price point low as possible. I hope they sell tons so then we’ll see new models or aftermarket parts. Still have to admit I sort of want one

Seems pretty cool for 250 msrp. I predict this will be this years Turners Black Friday deal. Not that it’d be a deal breaker but I wonder if 10/22 mags operate the last round bolt lock feature.
