    Winchester Wildcat semi-auto .22 rifle(!)

    In addition to the video, I guess the magazines have a little adapter to perform the last shot hold open when using 10/22 magazines.
    BUT don't quote me on that.

    Funny how the action holds the tools to take it down further. Meh stock.

    They've brought some interesting concepts to the table with that. I'm not a huge fan of polymer everything, but I guess I did own a cx4, so I'll sit down.

    About time someone adopted 10/22 mags, the Glock mag of the rimfire set.

    Not sure about that mag release, might be tough with gloves on. You’d certainly be unlikely to hit it by mistake though. The rest of it looks good, love that peep sights seem to be making a small resurgence. I’d give one a shot if it came in somewhere not too far North of 597 pricing.

    For Canada, another 22 rifle that is prohibited from having more than 10 round magazine (by RCMP decree).

    Cool. I can't wait to see or have one. Any idea as to when this rifle hits our LGS?

    Gun store in Montreal is taking pre-orders. Expected late summer. Gun is made by same Turkish manufacturer which makes Winchester Shotguns.

    Hair North of $300 CAN. Not bad. Not sure how many more .22’s I can justify.....

    Yea, I have no idea why I want one, but I want one.

    Isn't the 2 or 3, or 4, oh wait, I guess you could claim I have 5 rimfires, I already have - enough?

    Nice rifle. I don't think I'll get one.

    I do like how the trigger and receiver drops out for easy cleaning and maintenance.

    I don't know why, but I'm kind of thinking about getting the Browning BuckMark Rifle. However since I've already got a Henry, there isn't any rush to get another 22.
